Director Neeraj Vora says it won't be right to call Kay Kay Menon's inclusion in the film's cast as a "replacement" for Irrfan Khan.
"We can't call it as a replacement as we were keen to cast Irrfan, but he was busy and his dates were not matching. So, we approached Kay Kay Menon for the same," Vora told IANS.
"Kay Kay is a fabulous actor and now he is very much part of this project. We will start shooting for the film by end of this month," Vora added.
"Hera Pheri 3" will also feature John Abraham, Sunil Shetty, Abhishek Bachchan and Paresh Rawal.
