The name of Kartik Aaryan has been added to the star cast of the third part of the hit franchise ‘Hera Pheri’. In this movie, he will be seen in the role of Raju instead of Akshay Kumar. Some time ago, Akshay Kumar himself revealed that he is not a part of ‘Hera Pheri 3’. Due to this, the fans of Sunil Shetty and Akshay Kumar were very surprised. Now comes the news that before Karthik Aryan, Hera Pheri 3 movie was offered to Varun Dhawan but he declined.
According to Bollywood Hungama, Anand Pandit and Firoz Nadiadwala first approached Varun Dhawan for ‘Hera Pheri 3’. They both wanted Varun Dhawan to play the role of Raju. Apart from this, he also offered David Dhawan to direct this film with his son Rohit Dhawan but Varun Dhawan refused to work on the film.
A source told the portal: ‘Varun Dhawan respects Akshay Kumar very much. He did not want to take advantage of Feroze and Akshay Kumar’s bad relationship. Hera Phera 3 is sure to turn out to be a blockbuster. Varun Dhawan refused to be a part of this film out of respect for Akshay Kumar and David Dhawan understands this very well too. After this, Varun and David clarified the reason for not accompanying Anand and Feroze in the film.
Let’s say the first film of the ‘Hera Pheri’ franchise was released in the year 2000, which was directed by Priyadarshan. In this, the trio of Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal did a wonderful job. This movie turned out to be a huge success at the box office. After 6 years, ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ was released and also gained a lot at the box office. Now you have to see that instead of Akshay Kumar in ‘Hera Pheri 3’, Kartik Aaryan is able to show what wonders.
