John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan to replace Akshay Kumar in ‘Hera Pheri 3’

Hera Pheri 3 to release in December 2015

Perhaps John Abraham is on a streak to replace Akshay Kumar. After replacing Akshay Kumar in ‘Welcome Back’, John Abraham is now replacing Akshay in yet another sequel ‘Hera Pheri 3’. It actually came as a surprise that Akshay Kumar will not be seen in one of the most awaited sequel of the decade. While Producers are claiming that Akshay asked for a whooping sum of Rs 50 crore, the ‘Baby’ star on the other hand said that no one approached him for the film. Akshay added that he was busy shooting for his recent hit film ‘Baby’ at the time and he didn’t had any dates.

To add extra flavor to the comedy film, the producers has roped in Junior Bachchan to the film. Lately Abhishek bachchan has performed very well in comedy films. The success of ‘Bol bachchan’, ‘Dhoom 3′ and “Happy New Year’ shows that finally Junior Bachchan has found his lucky charm in the multistarer films. His daring comic stunts in Bol Bachchan and Happy New Year ensures that ‘Hera Pheri 3’ is perfect fit for him. John Abraham is reported to play the role of Raju Khabri in the film while Abhsihek bachchan will play the role of Raju duplicate. Raju was the name of character portrayed by Akshay kumar in the film.

Hera Pheri 3

The 2000 release film Hera Pheri is one of the best hindi comedy movie of all time. All thanks to the marvelous acting and comic timing of Paresh Rawal, Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar. Paresh Rawal’s ‘Babu Rao Ganpat Rao Apte’ become a legend among fans. Even side characters like Om Puri’s Khadak Singh and Tabu’s Anuradha was loved very much by fans.

The sequel of the film ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ didn’t matched the success of the classic. Phir Hera Pheri was a loose copy of Guy Ritchie’s Lock Stock and Two smoking barrels. Firoz Nadiawala, the producer of the franchise has claimed that Hera Pheri 3 will be biggest family entertainer of the year. The film would have definitely given a challenge to the highest grossing bollywood films if Akshay kumar would have signed up for the role. Audience love to watch the actual characters from the original film. But lets hope that John Abraham and Abhishek bachchan fulfill the absence of Akshay kumar.
