Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty went on to become one of the most loved comedy trio after Hera Pheri and Phir Hera Pheri that released decades ago. Soon the film became a cult. As the third installment is building up, Paresh Rawal has now revealed that Kartik Aaryan has come on board.

Meanwhile, there were speculations that Kumar has backed out and the new actor will be Kartik.

A recent report by Pinkvilla claims that Akshay Kumar may be pulling the plug on the film and other franchises like Welcome and Awara Pagal Deewana. The publication quoted a source as saying, “Foul play, Welcome, and Awara Pagal Deewana are the three most loved franchises headed by Akshay Kumar, and he was quite eager to re-watch the iconic films. However, after several rounds of meetings, he decided to take a step back, as he could not keep pace with the wider script ideas. ,
The source further added, “Kumar is well aware of the expectations of his fans in these comedy franchises. He refused to compromise on the quality of these scripts, as these sequels were thoughtlessly and remakes with other actors. Attempts have already failed.”
