Producer Firoz Nadiadwala has announced the star cast of the third film in the popular ‘Hera Pheri’ series titled ‘Hera Pheri 3’. While two of the three lead actors in the film have been retained, there is one major change to the series.
John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan, the on-screen duo of Dostana, will replace the inimitable Akshay Kumar in ‘Hera Pheri 3’. The film will be directed by Neeraj Vora who directed the second film in the series.
The first ‘Hera Pheri’ film, directed by Priyadarshan, did fairly well at the box office. But the second film ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ (2006), riding on the home video popularity of the first film, was a huge hit. The two films were popular because of the chemistry shared between Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal.
Rawal’s iconic ‘Baburai Ganpath Rao Apte’ remains one of the most popular comic characters in the history of Indian Cinema.
Will John Abraham doesn’t come close to Akshay’s brilliant comic timing, Abhishek’s inclusion could be interesting. What do you think of the ‘Hera Pheri 3’ cast? Tell us in the comments section below.
