Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty starrer Hera Pheri 3 which is the third installment in the popular Hera Pheri film franchise has been delayed yet again. Director Indra Kumar was supposed to start work on the film post. Total Dhamaal has put the film on the backburner and started work on another film starring Ajay Devgn. The film has been delayed multiple times over the last five years. The trio is also busy with their different film ventures and is unavailable to start shoot on the film. Hera Pheri was directed by Priyadarshan while the second part Phir Hera Pheri was helmed by Neeraj Vora.
A leading publication reported a source close to the development of the film, “Indra was set to take Hera Pheri 3 on floors by year-end. But the film has hit another roadblock as the dates of the cast members are apparently not working out. Since the comedy does not seem to be happening anytime soon, the director has set his sights on another story." Apparently, the director is keen to collaborate once again with Ajay on an action drama after the hit Total Dhamaal.
On the other hand, Ajay has got quite a few lucrative projects in hand. He is currently shooting for Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and also has SS Rajamouli’s RRR. He will also be seen in the biopic on the legendary football coach Syed Abdul Rahim.
Meanwhile, Akshay as always is busy with quite a number of films. He is currently shooting for Good News with Kareena Kapoor and is basking in the success of his last release Kesari. He will also be shooting for Rohit Shetty’s cop drama Sooryavanshi.
