Mumbai, Jan 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) The Hindi movie buffs are well aware of the film Hera Pheri, directed by Priyadarshan. It is the biggest comedy hit of the recent time. The hilarious story line entertained the whole nation and earned admiration from the critics. The jubilant cast and crew shot the sequel to the movie and now the work is in progress for the third edition of the sequel. The Hera Pheri 3 is a much awaited movie of 2011. We all need a good laugh in our lives. It remains to be seen whether Hera Pheri 3 can emulate the success of its predecessors.
This time around, the producer of the films Firoz Nadiadwala has bestowed the job of directing the movie to Anees Bazmee. The producer is excited with the script that Anees Bazmee has come up with, and states that it is a hilarious laugh riot and will surpass all the comedies produced in recent time. The first Hera Pheri movie directed by Priyadarshan did not have a great opening but picked up collection gradually. This movie is supposed to ride high from the first day and a great opening week is expected.
The adorable trio of Paresh Rawal, Akshay and Suniel Shetty will be missed in the third sequel. The roles played by the actors are already a legend. It is hard to imagine Hera Pheri without them. Nadiadwala had initially planned to maintain the same star cast but things didn’t turn out as it was planned. The producer waited a long time for Akshay to take up the assignment. But the budget allocation for the film was not favourable with the star and finally the producer and the actor parted ways. Firoz could not afford to have Akshay in the film.
Initially the thought was to replace Akshay only in the movie, but then later on Nadiadwala decided to change the entire star cast of the movie. According to the grape vines, he discussed his plans with the director and both agreed to the plan. The search for suitable actors to portray the roles started and the final star cast selected is quite fascinating. Our very own Nana Patekar will play the role of lovable Baburao, Junior Bachchan will be in the shoes of Akshay. The role of Suniel Shetty will be taken up by none other than Munnabhai, Sanjay Dutt himself. Though the old cast will be missed, the new star cast does promise to put up a great performance.
The expectations from the movie are high and we all hope that it recreates the old aura and delivers what the audience expects.
