Akshay Kumar on his exit from Hera Pheri 3

Akshay Kumar entertained one and all with his stellar performance as Raju in the two films of the comedy franchise Hera Pheri. While fans were eagerly waiting to watch Akshay return as Raju in Hera Pheri 3, their dreams were crushed. The makers of Hera Pheri 3 announced the film. It was reported that Kartik Aaryan will play Raju in Hera Pheri 3. Kumar recently broke his silence on his exit from Hera Pheri 3 and cited creative differences.

At the Hindustan Times Leadership summit recently, Khiladi Kumar apologised to his fans for not being a part of Hera Pheri 3 and expressed his sadness. He said he too was emotional and mentioned being ‘hurt’.

The actor further added, “Hera Pheri has been a part of me. Like a lot of people, I have good memories. Mujhe bhi dukh hota hai (I feel bad as well) that in so many years, part 3 hasn’t been made. But like I said we have to dismantle things. The film was offered to me but I was not satisfied with the script. I have to do what people want to see. That is why, I backed out. I took a step behind. It is a part of my life and journey for me. I am also very sad that I can’t do it. But I am not happy with how the creative things have shaped out.” Read it at length HERE.

Akshay Kumar on doing 4-5 films

Earlier this week, producer Boney Kapoor spoke about actors who wrap up a film shoot in 30 days. And, he further explained how it can affect the movie and its creativity.

At the Hindustan Times Leadership summit recently, Khiladi Kumar explained why he works in four to five movies in a year. He said, “Aare kon nahi karega? Kaam karunga main. 4 filme karunga (Aare who will not? I will work. I will do 4 movies).”

The Ram Setu actor added, “Haan, agar picture ke andar 50 din chahiye, 50 din dunga. 70 din chahiye, 70 din dunga. Main apne din ki baat kar raha tha. 40 din mein meri khatam ho jayengi (Yes, if a movie requires 50 days, I will give it 50 days. If it needs 70 days, I will give 70 days. I am talking about my days of shoot. In 40 days, I will complete my shoot).”

He continued, “Waise bhi picture ko kariban 70-90 din lagte hain. Lekin meri samajh ke bahar hai. Main aisa bola nahi hun, lekin aaj mera mann karta hai main bolu. Ki, kya baat hai bhai? Kya pareshaani hai? (Anyways, to complete a film entirely, it takes 70-90 days. But, its beyond my understanding. I never talk like this, but today, I feel like talking. What is it brother? What is the problem?).” Read it at length HERE.
