The last several weeks have seen parallel conversations between producer Firoz Nadiadwala and actors Akshay and Kartik, according to Bollywood Hungama. He jumped at the opportunity to go to work on it because he was eager to bring the comedic franchise back.

Neeraj Vora's comeback as director of Hera Pheri 3 and the addition of John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan were also reported. The movie was delayed for a number of reasons. Part 3 appears to be on schedule again, and Rawal himself has confirmed this. Kartik Aaryan has joined the team this time, though.

According to the report, Akshay requested a fee of Rs 90 crore plus a profit-sharing payment. Kartik, on the other side, was prepared to work on the film for Rs 30 crore. When Firoz spoke with the satellite and digital players, he realised that working with Kartik would yield more fruitful results than having Akshay on board.

Kartik will also be featured in ‘Satyaprem Ki Katha’, ‘Freddy’, and ‘Captain India’.
