Actor John Abraham has replaced Akshay Kumar in two big films – the sequel to his 2007 blockbuster ‘Welcome’ and the third part in the popular ‘Hera Pheri’ series. However, John has said that there is no animosity between them and they continue to be good friends.
“When I signed ‘Welcome Back’, I called up Akshay and I gave him the news first. He was very happy and said, ‘It’s a great film to do’. During ‘Hera Pheri 3’, I told him about it and he is a friend, we have worked together before. We are good friends. There is no animosity between us.”
‘Hera Pheri 3’ was announced at an event yesterday. The film, directed by Neeraj Vora, will featured Abhishek Bachchan, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty.
When asked about his long break from films – John was missing from the silver screen in 2014, his last release was ‘Madras Cafe’ – the actor said “I act in films and I also produce films. My production house makes different kind of films, and as an actor, I enjoy certain films. I loved ‘Hera Pheri’ and ‘Welcome’, so I’m working in the new films. It was a long break, and I am okay with long breaks.”
