Here is the explosive truth about Akshay Kumar’s proposed presence in the Hera Pheri franchise. Akshay Kumar has been quoted as saying that he didn’t like the script and hence opted out.
However sources close to the project reveal this cannot be technically true.
“How could Akshay Kumar reject something that isn’t there? The script that Akshay is said to have rejected doesn’t exist. Kartik Aaryan has agreed to come on board for two reasons: because the producer Firoz Nadiadwala promised to write a new role for Kartik and not have him replace Akshay, and because Firoz shared a terrific idea for Hera Pheri 3 with Kartik,” says a source in the know.
In other words, there is only an idea for a script, the script For Hera Pheri 3 is yet to be written.
Producer Firoz Nadiadwala confirms that the script and director are yet to be finalized.
