Hera Pheri 3 shooting begins with the original trio

On the third installment of India’s most popular comedy franchise, Hera Pheri 3 with Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal finally teaming up as Raju, Shyam, and Baburao.

Hera Pheri was heavily discussed during the casting of Hera Pheri 3 in 2022. Fans on social media expressed their displeasure at Akshay Kumar’s decision to leave the franchise owing to script problems and demanded to see their Khiladi back in the role of Raju.

The Khiladi will return as Raju in Hera Pheri 3 as producer Firoz Nadiadwala has restarted talks with the actor in response to public demand, a fortnight after Akshay announced his departure from the project.

Even though the story was widely shared, some people on social media believed it was phoney and even poked fun of the author for using click bait for news stories. The OG Hera Pheri three of Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal met at Empire Studios in Mumbai a week ago to talk about the franchise’s future, as we again exclusively reported.

On Hera Pheri 3, this was their initial official encounter. We now have another another insider update on this classic comedy movie. Our sources claim that the cast of Hera Pheri 3—Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal—starred today in Mumbai.

“The original Hera Pheri group comes back together to continue this cult franchise. The team is now convinced that Hera Pheri 3 will live up to all the buzz and anticipation around the third installment of Hera Pheri, even if there have been numerous discussions over the script over the past few months. The performers Akshay, Paresh, and Suniel, as well as producer Firoz Nadiadwala, are all eager to work again as Raju, Shyam, and Baburao, according to a source familiar with the situation.

It is interesting to note that the first Hera Pheri debuted in 1999 at Mumbai’s Empire Studios, and now, 24 years later, it feels as though life has come full circle. In addition to the original Hera Pheri trio, Hera Pheri 3 will feature several well-known performers in the comic book industry.

Over the past 17 years, Hera Pheri has developed a cult following among viewers.
