As soon as Akshay Kumar agreed to come on board forHera Pheri 3, producer Firoz Nadiadwala stalled the initial project with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in the lead. The Welcome Backproducer asked his team of writers to come up with a fresh script that will take off from where Phir Hera Pheri ended.
The last sequence of Phir Hera Pheri shows Akshay Kumar's character, Raju, trying his best to get hold of the antique guns. According to a dna report, Hera Pheri 3 will be about Baburao Apte (Paresh Rawal) and Ghanshyam's (Suniel Shetty) search for Raju who runs away with the guns.
The script and screenplay of Hera Pheri 3 is being developed by Neeraj Vora whereas the same will be directed by choreographer-turned-director Ahmed Khan. The movie will go on floors in Mumbai by the end of October and shooting is expected to be wrapped up by early 2017.
Before moving on to Hera Pheri 3, Akshay Kumar is expected to wrap up the shooting for Namastey England and Jolly LLB 2.
