Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal starrer Hera Pheri 3 has been postponed yet again. Indra Kumar, who was going to direct the film, has now started working on an action drama with Ajay Devgn.
The third film in the popular Hera Pheri series, Hera Pheri 3, has been delayed yet again. Director Indra Kumar, who was scheduled to begin work on the film post Total Dhamaal release, has now started working on another film with Ajay Devgn.
In the last five years, Hera Pheri 3 has been postponed multiple times. The film was to feature the trio of Akshay, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal, like in the original, but according to reports the actors are busy with other projects and are available at the same time.
Indra Kumar has reportedly begun work on his next project an action drama with his current favourite Ajay Devgn. A source close to the development told a leading publication, "Indra was set to take Hera Pheri 3 on floors by year-end. But the film has hit another roadblock as the dates of the cast members are apparently not working out. Since the comedy does not seem to be happening anytime soon, the director has set his sights on another story."
Reports say that Ajay Devgn has heard the script and has agreed to the initial negotiations. Ajay's present schedule seems to be packed with Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and SS Rajamouli's RRR and thus, the actor will only be able to begin work on Kumar's film by early 2020.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar is riding high on the success of his recently released film Kesari. The actor has also shot for a special song for brother-in-law Karan Kapadia's film Blank. Akshay is currently shooting for Good News with Kareena Kapoor. The film, which also features Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh in key roles, explores the subject of surrogacy. Rumour has it that Taimur Ali Khan will make his Bollywood debut with the film, which is slated to hit the theatres on September 6.
