Kartik Aryan to replace Akshay Kumar in Hera Pheri 3: Here’s why?
Fans will see a new face in the upcoming movie Hera Pheri 3 as Akshay backed out of the film. The versatile actor Akshay Kumar who has been in the 2 previous movies of the series is said to be replaced by Kartik Aryan. Several reasons are expected for the actors to back out. Firstly it is said that Firoz and Akshay didn’t agree on the terms of fees. Akshay demanded Rs 90 crores as his fees plus some share of profit for Hera Pheri 3 whereas Kartik Aaryan was willing to do it for Rs 30 crores. Meanwhile, the actor stated that he was not happy with the script so he turned it down. Another reason could be Akshay’s closeness to Sajid Nadiadwala. Firoz is sad to be the cousin of Sajid and it’s stated that they both haven’t spoken for many years.On the other hand, the actor cleared up all the misunderstandings in an interview. He stated ” Hera Pheri has been a part of me. Like a lot of people, I have good memories. Mujhe Bhi dukh hota hai. That is 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. What is happening, in me, is that things have changed. The audience wants something different. It is our fault not the audience’s fault. We have to give them what they want. That is what we have to rethink. We have to dismantle what we have made and start again”.
The actor was last seen in an action-adventure movie “Ram Setu ”. The movie cast included famous actors and actresses like Jacqueline Fernandez, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Satya Dev, and many others. Meanwhile, the actor is currently working on projects like Selfie and Soorarai Pottru Remake.
