- Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty reunite for Hera Pheri 3
- Hera Pheri 3 will be directed by Indra Kumar
- Hera Pheri 3 goes on floors in December 2018
Eighteen years ago when Hera Pheri released, movie buffs were introduced to one of the three most memorable characters of Bollywood comedy, which are still much talked-about - Raju (played by Akshay Kumar), Baburao Ganpatrao Apte (Paresh Rawal) and Ghanshyam (Suniel Shetty).
The third part of the series has been tentatively named Hera Pheri 3. The project has been finalized after the actors confirmed their dates. The film is expected to be going on floors in December 2018. "The project was locked last month after the three actors gave their dates. It will be shot in a start-to-finish schedule between December 2018 and February 2019 and will release in the second half of next year," sources told Mumbai Mirror.
Earlier, Suniel Shetty's Instagram post with his Hera Pheri co-star Akshay Kumar had fuelled speculation that a reunion was on the cards. Suniel Shetty captioned the Instagram post: "Aye Raaaaajjjuuuu! Always such a pleasure to see you, so happy to be smiling together forever."
Neeraj Vora, who died last year, had reportedly started working on the third installment and had finalised the story, screenplay and dialogues. Hera Pheri 3 is said to be a tribute to the late actor-director.
