Akshay Kumar, who had indicated that he would not feature in the third episode of his hit show Hera Pheri, is now rumoured to have began filming with Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty.
An official shot from the Hera Pheri sequel sets has been making the rounds online since yesterday, indicating that production has officially commenced.
The first two films starred Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh. After Akshay Kumar quit from the third film, Paresh Rawal revealed that Kartik Aaryan would replace him in the comedy.
Akshay Kumar has already indicated that he is withdrawing from the project, explaining that it is a part of his life and journey. I am quite unhappy that I am not a part of it, but I am not thrilled with how the creative sides of things have developed. I simply resigned, he explained. In terms of work, Akshay Kumar made a cameo role in Ayushmann Khurrana’s film An Action Hero.
The first Hera Pheri film was directed by Priyadarshan, and the second was directed by the late Neeraj Vora. The third film’s director is yet unknown.
