Priyadashan had given this hilarious movie ‘Hera Pheri’ with Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal in the three lead roles. The trio was repeated in the sequel and both the films rocked at the box office. Now, when the producer Feroz Nadiadwala is ready to come out with the third movie of Hera Pheri series, Akshay has turned pricey, which definitely doesn’t seems to be fitting into his budget.
Feroz Nadiadwala even kept the sequel pending for four years, for Akshay. However, now as that they have parted ways, the producer has decided to change the entire star cast. In the third Hera Pheri, Abhishek Bachchan will be seen replacing Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty will be replaced by Sanjay Dutt and Nana Patekar will don the role played by veteran Paresh Rawal.
The producer said that these actors will continue to be in the upcoming Hera Pheri films. But Nadiadwala is very distressed to continue without Akshay Kumar in the next movie. He said that Akshay is like a bother to him and he always wanted to have him in the next series. But he can not afford the price tag of Akshay now. Nadiadwala has been on talks on this project with Akshay Kumar since 2006, yet they could not reach to an agreement. The producer hopes to get a chance to work with this superstar in his future ventures.
How will Hera Pheri 3 look without its three original lead actors? We hope the new set of actors can do justice to this laughing riot in their own way.
