Actor Suniel Shetty is looking forward to being back on the set with Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar for Hera Pheri 3. Only last week, an on-set picture of the OG trio surfaced online that went viral in no time. Fans were super excited to know that the three are finally coming together for the third instalment. Now, Suniel Shetty penned a long note about Hera Pheri 3 that is finally happening while also explaining the business point of the film.
Suniel Shetty on Hera Pheri 3:
In a Linkedin post, Suniel wrote, “So Hera Pheri 3 is finally happening! Look forward to being back on set with Pareshji and Akki (Akshay). Like all good things, this one took some time, but it’s a relief to finally have an answer to this question! Films are such a huge part of our culture, and yet, not many understand what goes into making a film. Apart from creative challenges, the business model and needs of the movie business make it as challenging as any other.”
He added that the business and finance part of filmmaking is a major part of the process. “There are several factors for any business to succeed – a good idea, thorough market research, a solid business plan, a skilled team, funding at the right time and a strong distribution network. The movie business isn’t very different. To explain the entirety of the movie business here would be over simplifying it. But let’s just say having a good script, a set of actors and a director is literally just the start point. There’s the financing of a movie. It’s usually studios or production houses, which invest their own capital. Their teams assess the viability of a project before deciding on the budget.”
Furthermore, the Main Hoon Na actor also explained the financial aspect of the movie while concluding, “There are so many other aspects that make the movie business challenging – audience preferences, data and insights, IP rights and licences, pre and post production, line production, permissions, promotions, pricing etc etc. 33 years and 125 films later I don’t have it all figured out, but I will keep getting better at it.”
Akshay Kumar will reprise his role as Raju, Paresh Rawal as Baburao and Suniel Shetty as Shyam in Hera Pheri 3.
