Akshay Kumar was last seen in Ram Setu, Cuttputlli, BellBottom, RakshaBandhan, Bachchhan Paandey and the actor is trying hard to bring laughter back to Hindi film industry like old times. Akshay seems hurt after making an exit from Hera Pheri 3 citing script issue. Hera Pheri and its sequel starred Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty, which released in 2000 and 2006, respectively. Awara Paagal Deewana hit the big screen in 2002.
“Akshay Kumar was hurt over not being able to be a part of Hera Pheri’s next instalment since the franchise holds a special place in his career. However, Firoz Nadiadwala was just being practical. Akshay refused to lower his price. This can’t be a one-way street; it’s not fair that only Akshay makes money while the producer incurs losses. And post-pandemic, one has no choice but to lower his/her remuneration,” Bollywood Hungama quoted its source as saying.
“Firoz tried explaining this to Akshay but he didn’t relent. With no other choice, Firoz Nadiadwala got Kartik Aaryan on board for Hera Pheri 3. This is when Akshay Kumar realized that Firoz actually meant business. Firoz had made it clear to Akshay Kumar that he was the first choice for both these highly exciting sequels. He was hoping that he and Akshay could sit down and work on the commercials so that it benefited everyone,” the source added.
The source revealed, “After Akshay Kumar publicly claimed that he’s exiting Hera Pheri 3 because of problems in the script, Firoz was disappointed and hurt. He has now decided to go ahead with Awara Paagal Deewana 2 and Welcome 3 without Akshay. The priority, however, would be on Hera Pheri 3 right now.”
On the other hand, paid media is out there to twist facts and blame actor for debacle though facts are something else. This circus will go on and on!
