Sanjay Dutt reveals that in Hera Pheri 3, he plays a blind don. According to a source, his character will be similar to that of Feroz Khan’s RDX.
Actor Sanjay Dutt confirmed his role in the upcoming installment of Hera Pheri. He is the new addition to the cast, which include Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal. Sanjay recently reacted to reports of him joining Hera Pheri 3, and confirmed that he is playing a blind don in the comedy movie.
Hera Pheri 3 will be shot in 3 locations
Directed by Farhad Samji, Hera Pheri 3 will also have Kartik Aaryan. Paresh Rawal had earlier confirmed that he will be reprising his iconic character Babu bhaiyaa in the film, which will be shot in Los Angeles, Abu Dhabi, and Dubai.
Sanjay Dutt’s statement
During a press conference, Sanjay had earlier said, “Yes, I am doing the film. It will be exciting to shoot with the whole team. It’s a great franchise, and I’m so happy to be a part of it. Firoz aur mera rishta bhi bahut purana hai (I have a close relationship with producer Firoz Nadiadwala), and it’s great to be together with Akshay (Kumar), Suniel anna (Shetty), and Paresh (Rawal).” He was at a store launch in Mumbai.
While Kartik Aaryan’s role in Hera Pheri 3 was confirmed last year, it’s still unclear in what capacity Akshay Kumar will be seen in the film. Last year, Akshay had said that he will not be a part of Hera Pheri 3. However, in February this year, he shot a promo for the film.
First two installments of Hera Pheri were blockbuster
The first film in the Hera Pheri series was directed by Priyadarshan and was released in 2000. It was the remake of the 1989 Malayalam film Ramji Rao. Neeraj Vohra wrote and directed the second instalment, Phir Hera Pheri which was out in 2006. Both films featured Akshay, Paresh and Suniel as the iconic trio, and they were hit.
