Here’s some shocking and very disappointing news for Hera Pheri fans.
The icons of Hera Pheri, Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar have opted out of Feroz Nadiadwala’s Hera Pheri 4, to be directed by Anees Bazmee (Welcome, No Entry, Singh Is King).
And what’s more, according to sources Akshay has been replaced by Sanjay Dutt to play the role of Raju and Nana Patekar replaces Paresh Rawal as Baburao Ganpatrao Apte.
“Both actors have lost interest in the project and have made it clear they have no interest in coming together for yet another `Hera Pheri` film. Producer Firoz Nadiadwala delayed the film in the hope that he would be able to convince them to stay on, but now he has no choice but to go ahead with different actors.” says a source.
Others say it was due to the lack of dates. Either way, this is hugely disappointing.
Think Sanjay Dutt and Nana Patekar will do justice to those iconic characters? Comments below
Update: Firoz Nadiadwala has rubbished the rumour “This is completely untrue and baseless. The script has shaped up really well and we are planning to go ahead with it in coming months. We never make announcements, it’s just a matter of time before we actually start shooting.”
Its huge disappointment…..
Akki & Paresh need to re-think over it…
I cant imagine Hera pheri without them…. :-(
Without Akki and Paresh Rawal, It Would Not Be Like Earlier Hera Pheri and Hera Pheri 2. I Think Akki and Paresh Rawal Is The Main Characters. Well, Let’s See… What Will Happen?
indicine i think this clears it all……
Hera Pheri is one of the funniest films of the last decade and has a huge fan following. Both characters played by Paresh (Baburao) and Akshay (Raju) have become iconic. But now both actors have lost interest in the project and have made it clear they have no interest in coming together for yet another ‘Hera Pheri’ film.
Producer Firoz Nadiadwala delayed the film in the hope that he would be able to convince them to stay on, but now he has no choice but to go ahead with different actors.”
Talking about approaching Sanju and Nana, the source adds, “In all probability, you will see Dutt in Akshay’s role and Nana in place of Paresh. Both actors have good comic timing.”
When contacted, Firoz says, “This is completely untrue and baseless. The script has shaped up really well and we are planning to go ahead with it in coming months. We never make announcements, it’s just a matter of time before we actually start shooting.” Talking about approaching Nana and Sanju he adds, “How can we make Hera Pheri without Akshay and Paresh ?
They are very much a part of the film. As far as Sanju and Nana are concerned, they are doing other projects with us. Sanju is part of the Hangover remake while Nana is doing the Welcome sequel. So I don’t know where all this talk is coming from.”
and also i am very surprised that sanjay dutt is in hangover remake……..indicne or any1 know who else is in hangover remake…….
hahaha so now Nana will pe Babu Bhai…
it is a joke of the day.
no doubt Nana is very good actor but he cant performce like Paresh as Babu Bhai,
Sanju baba is looking very old in Blue and All The Best ,and when this movie will release may be 2011 he will look more old.
100 % bet movie gonna be flop with out akki n paresh…
i am very Happy when Amish told me abt it on yahoo today . i said it is good for Akki because from 1st day i have doubt on Hera Pheri 4 and i was thinking it wont work and Akki has a lots of other movies and i want less and quality movies from him.
he should stop signing new movies and he should complete his running movies first..
is it 100 % True news or may be change of rumour ????
@nauman nd sunny…..see my comment……i think its just a rumour….
This is not fair, hera pheri wont be hera pheri without akki and paresh, but there is amitabh bachchan added to the cast??? pls reply indicine team.
@Aman: yes i agreed wit ur comment, this is totaly untrue. How hera pheri happen with out Akshay, Paresh n Sunil, is impossible. So throw this report away is just a wast of time, if they say hera pheri 4 are shelbed i will agreed with that, instead to say is raplace by another cast.
These are rumors and cannot be confirmed as 100% true unless it comes directly from the makers or the actors.
Regarding Hangover remake.. Here are some of the rumors that we posted in another topic..
There are four rumours, but nothing is confirmed yet.
1) Akshay Kumar will be a part of the remake, directed by Sajid Khan, to be produced by Firoz Nadiadwala.
2) There were also rumours that Saif Ali Khan’s Production house Illuminati Productions were approached by Warner Bros themselves.
3) To be directed by Anees Bazmee starring Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Ritesh Deshmukh and Paresh Rawal.
4) Sanjay Dutt it is said, is also interested in remaking the film
i think is it cheepest way of publicity that spread some rumour abt ur movie , people will talk abt and after that correction that every thing is untrue..
i like it
@ Akki and Hera Pheri fans. its a rumour guyz so relax.
typical Bollywood media. got nowt better to do.
Don’t always blame the media. There are many in the industry who leak such info, which sometimes can be untrue.
When we try calling producers / actors.. they respond with no comments.. While they cannot respond to each and every rumor, we cannot verify everything too.
it is just a way of publicity, 1st they said Om Puri as Kharak singh is back
then Big B has one of the lead role
and now akki n paresh has out…
i m waiting for next news
they should start movie becuase
Hera Pheri 2000
Phir Hera Pheri 2006
and now hera Pheri 4 should be in 2011
if they will start now then they can release it next yr
and Anees Bazmi has also doubt that he has his own intrest in Thank You… he wants to make Thank You first…
dats were ur wrong indicine. da media in India r pathetic compared to da west. yes even da stories in da west r not alwayz true but da things dat come out from Bollywood r generally ridiculous.
e.g zoom wat a pathetic channel
rajeev masnad. RETARD.
“Don’t always blame the media. There are many in the industry who leak such info, which sometimes can be untrue.”
lol .. so wots yur job??? so yu’r tryin to say that any tom dick n harry from the industry will splatter crap n media just catches it and publish it??? without even rationally putting you’r brains thru it?? even Nauman n naveed n all the N’s commenting here are smart enough 2 figure out n doubt the news. if you cant verify the news coz actors or directors are not available then y would you publish it?? may b just to fill in yu’r webpage?? if you cant get hold of the actors or directors that means you dont have sufficient links wif the industry, you dont have effective relationships wif the industry. so SHAME ON YU for even defending yurself with such shallow excuse!!!
herez an idea, keep a segment called ‘RUMOURs’ dat would make more sense. And please anybody here, dont compare pathetic indian media to the media in the west they are heapz better trust me.
coming back to hangover remake!!!!!!!
OMFG!!!! OMFG!!! i hope warner bros sues bollywood for such pathetic act. HANGOVER is the best comedy released last year and it is my fav. PUHHHHHLEASSSSSSSEEE.. dont butcher it by remaking it in bollywood, i beg you. who would fill the shoes of sexy Bradley Cooper?? extremely TALENTED and my FAV comedian from THE OFFICE ED HELMS?? yu think anybody in bollywood is even close to his comic skills???wot bout AMAZING AMAZING Zacharius Knight, how naturally and effortlessly he carried out the role of ALAN aka FAT Jesus. even that Chinese dude who played asian DON in the movie was hilarious and showed great timing.
yu cant in next 100 years make something original like HANGOVER and trust me you dont have actors to carry out these roles. you gonna have sometin standardless & cheap, if tried by bollywood.
yu better enjoy yur 3 idiots or my name is munki or any other excuse for movies but please dont touch our fav stuff. lay offffff!!!!!!
@Vick If you hate bollywood so much why are you here??
i know, may be india is still a slave of colonial fallout and is run by goons and hypocrites but still bro, webspace is a free space. people have freedom to express their view. if you can show your affection and love why cant i show my agony when i see something really really really lame? i know nothing is perfect but temme if i am wrong when i said all that in my comment?? well dont take it as an explanation coz i couldnt care less the only reason i am writing @ yur’s is cuz yu asked.
PS: i visit indicine indiafm n boxofficeindia sometimes just 2 have some update on wots goin on at the other end cuz at some point in my life i was crazy movie maniac who would watch anything 2 satisfy my hunger for movies. i was 17 sme that time :) and after that left india for good.
i know, may be india is still a slave of colonial fallout and is run by goons and hypocrites.
after that left india for good.
what do u mean to say by this It’s not u who have left INDIA.It’s INDIA who has left you for good.
believe me how many years u stay to your new country get yourself the nationality of that country but somewhere the Indian word would be attached to u.In whatever accent u speak your new language but your mother tongue will be more powerful you may have a great vocabulary of new language but there will be words of Your mother tongue that u won’t find in your new language dictionary.So don’t say that you left INDIA for good but we will say that it’s good you left INDIA bcoz a person who don’t have respect for his motherland cannot live on any land of the earth.
“AND IF U SAID ANYTHING AGAINST INDIA OR IT’S PEOPLE OR IT’S CINEMA TO TERE FAN MAIN TEKO HANG KAR KE TE KO OVER KAR DUNGA HOGAYA HANGOVER KA REMAKE”
@Indicine: i am with u, some of people they need to hear rumours n if it became true we first hear from u n we know this is ur pride. But my advise 4 u is, add d word of rumour from the headline, this can make us commentless against u.
i think akshay and paresh are the major factor of comedy film, no one can beet them, without them it would be flop if it would be relised.
That’s good news. The less we see of Akshay Kumar, the better.
it’s a bad news.hope it is not true.without akki-paresh jodi hera pheri wont be hera pheri.
Usman and others.. Notice the question mark in the title? It was always meant to be a rumour.
hahaha .. yur a joker man. coudnt read lot of yur msg but yu seem emotionally unstable, i think YU still hav the HANGOVER of assfurkin that yu got earlier today. lolxx. btw i believe in original and yu seem like a cheap copy of some lameass oudated bollywood sucker. i aint a type who would indulge in a fools tugawar wif ya only fo one reason; infact heres sometin yu can learn as well..

In hera pheri no Akki and Paresh if so movie will be dumped

without AKKI and PARESH hera pheri will be incomplete especially paresh he’s character is the sole of the movie.
