Akshay Kumar was last seen in Ram Setu, Cuttputlli, BellBottom, RakshaBandhan, Bachchhan Paandey and the actor is gearing up to bring laughter back to Hindi film industry like old times. Earlier, it was reported that he will be back with Firoz Nadiadwala produced movies like Hera Pheri, Awara Pagal Deewana and Welcome released in 2000, 2002, 2007, respectively
The latest bollywood news is that he has made an exit from all above-mentioned sequels. Hera Pheri 3 was proclaimed starring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Suniel Shetty, and Paresh Rawal. It started shooting, and after over a month, was stopped mid-way for numerous reasons. Welcome’s sequel Welcome Back in 2015 starred John Abraham.
“Hera Pheri, Welcome, and Awara Pagal Deewana are three of the most loved franchises led by Akshay Kumar, and he was quite keen to revisit the iconic films. However, after several rounds of meetings, he has decided to take a step back, as he couldn’t align with the broad script ideas,” Pinkvilla quoted its source as saying.
The source stated, “Akshay Kumar is well aware of his fans’ expectations of him in these comedy franchises. He refused to compromise on the quality of these scripts, as attempts to remake these sequels without proper thought and with other actors have already failed in the past.”
“Akshay Kumar already has a busy calendar and is choosing his future scripts very carefully. He might opt for a fresh, new comedy than ride on the popularity of past franchises with half-baked scripts,” the source further said. “He’s now making it with a young actor and talks are on with multiple directors, in an attempt to somehow take the franchise forward,” the source added.
