Fans jumped with joy when Hera Pheri was confirmed to be in the making. People felt that the reunion of the superhit trio of Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal, who entertained the fans in Hera Pheri and then in Hera Pheri, was going to be seen. But Akshay has been replaced by Kartik Aaryan in Hera Pheri 3 and fans can’t believe it. Akshay has now broken his silence on not doing the third installment of his hit comedy franchise.

At the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Akshay was asked about the speculations about him being a part of Hera Pheri 3 or not. The actor confirmed that he had walked out of the project and revealed that he was not satisfied with the film’s script and other aspects of it did not impress him much.

“Look, the film was offered to me, I was told about it. But the screenplay, the script and everything… I was not satisfied; I was not happy with it. I don’t just have to say it, I have to do it. ” What do people want to see and that’s why, I hold back. I took a step back. For me, it’s a part of my life, my journey in a huge way. I feel very sad too. I feel so sad that I’m unable to do it because I’m not happy with how things have turned out…with the creative thing. I am not happy with it, so I backed out.

He also addressed their immense love and how he saw a trend that said, ‘No Raju, No Hera Pheri.’ He said that as much pain has been felt by the fans, he can also feel the same pain. He said sorry to the fans for not doing Hera Pheri 3.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that producer Firoz Nadiadwala decided to bring Kartik on board as the latter was more profitable than Akshay due to his remuneration. While Akshay reportedly demanded Rs 90 crore and a share of the profits, Kartik was ready to do the film for Rs 30 crore. The film will be directed by Anees Bazmee and the talks are in final stages.
