' Hera Pheri 3 ' confirmed with original cast. Trio of Akshay, Suniel and Paresh to reunite.

One of the most popular Bollywood franchises, Hera Pheri, starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal is all set to return for its third installment.

Producer Firoz Nadiadwala, in a recent interview, confirmed working on Hera Pheri 3 and also revealed that the upcoming film with feature the original cast.

''You'll get to see it very soon with the same star cast - Akshay Ji, Paresh bhai and Suniel Ji. The story is in place, and we are working on certain modalities. It'll be made in the same way, retaining the innocence of the characters.

We can't take past achievements for granted. So, we have to be extra careful in terms of our content, story, screenplay, characters and mannerism,'' Nadiadwala told Bollywood Hungama.

Hera Pheri released in 2000 followed by Phir Hera Pheri in 2006. Both the films, over the years, have managed to gain cult status for their hilarious script and entertaining performances.

While the producer did not reveal much, he hinted that they have already shortlisted a director for the next sequel. ''We are in talks. We'll make the announcement soon,'' said Nadiadwala.

The first part was directed by Priydarshan, while the sequel was written and directed by the late Neeraj Vora. Recently, there were rupurs that Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa will helm Hera Pheri 3, however Nadiad wala denied the reports.

He also shared that the team had indeed started work on Hera Pheri 3 in 2014 but had to stop after Vora fell ill.

The third film will allegedly have a lot of changes in terms of story  and characters. Nadiadwala also seemed optimistic that he can create a big franchise with Hera Pheri, with each film bringing in big amounts.

He said, ''Sustaining at the box office is important. And the moment you take anything for granted, it falls.

Because, we hope, that God willing, we can make more parts. And it should be better than the earlier parts. We hope that there will be a new film released every 15 months. Isn't this how the West operates?

Don't we get a new Spider-Man or Bond film soon after the previous part has been released in the cinema?
