Speaking about Hera Pheri 3 earlier in a press conference, Sanjay Dutt also confirmed that he has joined the cast. He said, “Yes, I am making the film.

Firoz aur mera rishta bhi bahut purana hai (I have a close relationship with the producer Firoz Nadiadwala, and it’s great to be together with Akshay (Kumar), Suniel Anna (Shetty) and Paresh (Rawal).”
When fans were confused as to whether or not Hera Pher 3 would happen and whether or not Akshay Kumar would return to the franchise, Suniel Shetty had set the record straight with a post on LinkedIn. He shared early glimpses of the shoot, saying: “So Hera Pheri 3 is finally happening! I look forward to getting back on set with Paresh Rawal and Akki (Akshay Kumar). Like all good things, this one took some time, but it’s a relief to have Finally an answer to this question. Adding, “In the film, Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal will be seen reprising their popular characters, Raju, Shyam and Baburao respectively.”
The original “Hera Pheri” was released in 2000 and achieved cult comedy status. A sequel, “Phir Hera Pheri” (2006), followed with Shetty reprising his role as Shyam, Rawal returning as Babu Bhaiya, and Kumar as Raju. The third part has been in the works for quite some time. Last year, Akshay announced that he pulled out of the third part due to creative differences, causing an internet storm.
Akshay has reportedly previously walked away from the franchise due to a lack of clarity in the script. Following this news, Paresh took to Twitter and confirmed that Kartik is a new addition to the cast. A fan on Twitter asked a question by tagging Paresh Rawal, “@Sir PareshRawal sir, is it true that Kartik Aaryan is doing Hera Pheri 3?” To which Paresh tweeted: “Yes, that’s true.”
