One of the biggest talking points since the last couple of days has definitely been surrounding Hera Pheri 3. A film sequel that has literally been in the news for ages was seemingly gaining pace and conversation again where things finally are moving forward. However, this came with a massive disappointment for the fans as it was rumored that the man himself, Akshay Kumar won't be a part of Hera Pheri 3.
This led to trends and messages about how there should be 'No Hera Pheri 3 without Akshay'.
Finally, Kumar was asked about it at the recently held Hindustan Times Leadership Summit. And he went on to answer as length saying, “Hera Phera has been a part of me and I have good memories about it. Mujhe bhi dukh hota hai ki itne saalon se woh film bani nahi matlab uske aage ka part 3. (I am also upset that this film has still not been made, the third part.) We have to dismantle things. We have to start thinking in a different way.”
The actor said that he was not happy with how things shaped up. “The film was offered to me and I was told about it. But the screenplay, script and everything, I was not satisfied, not happy with it. I have to do what people want to see and that is why I backed out, I took a step behind. For me, it’s a part of me, my life, my journey, in a huge way. Mujhe bhi bahut dukh ho raha hai. Main khud bhi bahut dukhi hun iss baat se ki main kar nahi paa raha hun (I am also very upset. I am very upset with teh fact that I won’t be doing it) because I’m not happy with how things have shaped up. That’s why I backed out,” he said.
Kumar also acknowledged the ‘No Raju no Hera Pheri’ trend on Twitter and said that he is very hurt and sad about not doing the film. He said, “As much as hurt they are, I myself am very hurt. It’s a very sad thing but at the same time unhone iss baat ko trend karaya, (they made this trend) thank you very much.” He concluded with, “I apologise to them (fans) that I won’t be doing Hera Pheri. Sorry.”
