Earlier, when there was a buzz around Ali being missing from Fukrey 3, Fazal dropped a statement saying, “So Zafar aayega ya nahi? Sab yahi puch rahe hain baar baar. Sorry saathiyon, iss baari nahi! Zafar bhai ko kabhi kabhi Guddu bhaiya bhi banna padhta hai. Aur do universes overlap ho jaate hain kabhi kabhi. (Everyone is asking me about Zafar not being in Fukrey. Sorry my friends, this time he won’t. At times Zafar has to become Guddu and these two universes at times overlap). Once a fukra always a fukra so I am around. But I won’t be coming on screen for the third outing of the Fukras, Bholi and Panditji”
“I would have wanted to be part of it but time and schedules didn’t allow me to. I will be back in the future at some juncture, maybe sooner than you expect. Zafar will be back after a small detour to entertain you guys,” the Khamoshiyan actor also added.
