Hera Pheri, a cult comedy, occupies a special place in the minds of the public. Fans are looking for a new sequel to this movie. Actor Paresh Rawal recently spoke about the sequel to Hera Pheri, and that’s what he said. Paresh Rawal captured hearts with his outstanding performance in Priyadarshan’s Hera Pheri as Baburao Ganpatrao Apte or Babu Bhaiya.
The on-screen chemistry of Paresh, Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty kept audiences glued to the screen. Hera Pheri was directed by Priyadarshan and released in 2000. It was followed by Phir Hera Pheri in 2006, and fans are eagerly waiting for the third installment.
Paresh revealed in an interview with ETimes that he had lost interest in the Hera Pheri sequel. “If I have to do the same again, usi prakar ki dhoti pehenke, chashme lagake chalna hai (if I have to wear a similar dhoti and walk the same with glasses)… except for the money, of course, I will charge a bomb!” he added, citing how Munna Bhai MBBS got a proper following. So, there will be no fun for me other than the money.
It won’t work to make a sequel to Hera Pheri after all these years, with the same old ghisa-pita gags. He needs to develop before he gets excited about me. Otherwise, wahi chabaya hua niwala firse chabana hai will not give me the same level of pleasure.
Paresh Rawal also called Akshay his family man and Suniel his boyfriend of three years. If speculation is to be believed, a sequel to Hera Pheri is in the works, though no official announcement has been made. Paresh was last seen in Sharmaji Namkeen on the labor front. Next, the actor will star alongside Kartik Aaryan in Shehzada.
