The source was quoted as saying, “While everything was on paper with regard to the casting of Hera Pheri 3 with Kartik Aaryan, the tides are now changing again. Over the last 10 days, Firoz has met Akshay Kumar a couple of times to sort out all the differences and get him back to the loved franchise. He realizes how iconic the character is and also acknowledges that the credit to make the character scale new heights goes to the way in which Akshay enacted the part.”

The insider added, “Hera Pheri can’t be made without Akshay Kumar. The idea is to bring back the most iconic comic franchise of Hindi Cinema with the original actors, and the discussions are going on at the moment. Akshay too has shown interest to collaborate with Firoz not just as an actor but also creatively to make Hera Pheri 3 a film that’s worth all the wait, hype, and anticipation.” Also Read: Throwback: When Aamir Khan Almost SLAPPED Twinkle Khanna & The Reason Was Akshay Kumar

The report also stated the reason why Akki rejected the 3rd installment of the superhit film, “While there were reports of finances not working out, the reason for Akshay not doing Hera Pheri was never the money, but the script. He knows how big a franchise is and didn’t want to take things for granted just to capitalize on the brand name. But now, he and Firoz will sit down and decide on all the aspects of Hera Pheri 3. If everything goes well, Akshay could be back as Raju in Hera Pheri 3,” the source concluded. Also Read: Alia Bhatt Films That Have Crossed Rs 100 Crore

I am very upset that I am not part of it but I am not happy with how things have shaped up, the creative aspects. So I just backed out. I am grateful to my fans. I saw ‘No Raju, No Hera Pheri’ on trend Twitter. As much as hurt they are, I am hurt too. It is a sad thing. I am very thankful to everyone. My fans love me a lot. Their craze for me is unbound. I apologise to them that I won’t be doing Hera Pheri 3. Sorry,” Akshay said.

Well, we can’t wait to see the OG cast of Hera Pheri reuniting for the next installments.
