Mumbai: The trio of Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Priyadarshan worked magic in numerous films such as ‘Hera Pheri’, ‘Garam Masala’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’ among others. They had last come together in the film ‘De Dana Dan’ almost seven years back and now, they are all set to come together for a new film to be produced by Rohit Shetty.
Priyadarshan has not directed any Hindi film after the Jackky Bhagnani-starrer ‘Rangrezz’ released three years ago and is pleased to return. “The film is being written by me and Chennai Express writer Yunus. The actress is yet to be finalised. After three years of silence, I made Oppam (2016), which is the biggest hit of my career. Its success is so inspiring. It’s time to come to Bollywood again,” Priyadarshan told DNA.
Reportedly, Akshay will play a Punjabi character and the film will go on floors in April next year and will be shot in Mumbai and Punjab.
Suniel Shetty has also been one of Priyadarshan’s favourites and there were reports that a third part of ‘Hera Pheri’ is in the pipeline. While we don’t know if ‘Hera Pheri 3’ will actually happen or if Priyadarshan would make it, but it would be interesting to see if Suniel also joins the cast of this film.
