A few months back, it was confirmed by the makers of Hera Pheri 3 that the third part of the franchise of Hera Pheri 3 would be directed by Indra Kumar. There was a buzz in the industry that this film will go on floor early next year during the Christmas 2019. However, media reports on Saturday suggest that the release of Hera Pheri 3 may have been delayed to 2020.

According to Bollywood Hungama, “Hera Pheri 3 was announced based on a one-line idea that was narrated to the entire cast. While Akshay Kumar had given a go-ahead to the film, he was very clear on the fact that he would allot his date only after a bound script is in place. He is in no hurry to start shooting for the film mainly because he knows the expectation that audience have from the film and he doesn’t want to release the film just to bank on the brand name. The idea has been developed a couple of times, but the outcome was not satisfactory which has got the film back to square one.”

The reports also said “Firoz Nadiadwala is an independent producer who usually bankrolls a project based on crowdfunding. As the shooting of Hera Pheri 3 came to halt with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in lead, the producer landed in a cash crunch. After he convinced Akshay Kumar to come on board, the investors have regained their interest on the project and have agreed to fund the same however nothing apart from star-cast has been locked as of now.”

The earliest that the film can go on floors is the last quarter of 2019 and release in the second half of 2020 provided that the team is able to lock an interesting script.”
