Bollywood star Suniel Shetty on Thursday stated he’s thrilled about Kartik Aaryan becoming a member of the Hera Pheri franchise and clarified that the actor has not changed his co-star Akshay Kumar within the upcoming third half. The in style comedy movie sequence revolves round three males Raju (Kumar), Shyam (Suniel Shetty) and Babu Bhaiya (Paresh Rawal) who hatch foolish plans to make a fast buck. Last week at an occasion in Delhi, Kumar had confirmed his exit from Hera Pheri 3 citing inventive variations. Prior to that, Rawal had stated the upcoming film will quickly go on the flooring with Kartik Aaryan taking up the function of Raju.
Amid Aaryan’s entry within the third installment of the film, Shetty stated nobody can exchange Kumar because the streetsmart Raju.
“Kartik Aaryan is a brilliant choice, (but) he is not playing Raju. Kartik is an absolute new character and he will bring amazing energy to the role that he would play.
“Nobody can exchange Raju. Now, it’s for Raju and Firoz (producer Nadiadwala) bhai to kind out ‘Hera Pheri’ (the difficulty),” Shetty told PTI.
The first film, which was released in 2000, was directed by Priyadarshan. Its sequel Phir Hera Pheri (2006) saw the same cast reprising their iconic characters. Late actor-filmmaker Neeraj Vora had helmed the second part.
The third part has been in the works for quite some time. Backed by Firoz Nadiadwala, Hera Pheri 3 will be helmed by Anees Bazmee, according to reports.
According to Shetty, a hit film is defined by the popularity of its central characters, which, he said, happened in the case of Hera Pheri.
“I really feel a success movie is one thing whose characters are remembered, like Raju, Shyam, Babu bhaiya. The simplicity of ‘Hera Pheri’ has labored with the viewers. I did not know that the movie would turn into a cult (traditional) like this. But I knew it might be appreciated,” the 61-year-old actor, who played the geeky Shyam in Hera Pheri, further said.
For Suniel Shetty, Rawal’s bumbling, irritable landlord is the “soul” of the franchise.
“Babu bhaiya is the soul of the movie and he controls the 2 motion heroes Raju and Shyam. I believe the viewers liked this. We did not do performing within the movie, we had been simply ourselves and that is why ‘Hera Pheri’ has all the time labored,” he said.
“Clean comedies will all the time work like magic and will likely be liked by toddlers to older individuals. You wouldn’t really feel such as you need to quick ahead and watch it,” he added.
Suniel Shetty is awaiting the release of his debut web series “Dharavi Bank”, which will arrive on MX Player on November 19. It is directed by Samit Kakkad.
