Firoz Nadiadwala Comedy Universe
In an exclusive conversation with Pinkvilla, Suniel Shetty confirmed that the plans are indeed in place for revival of three franchises. “Firoz Nadiadwala has got a great universe with Hera Pheri, Awara Pagal Deewana and Welcome,” he smiles, adding further that after Hera Pheri 4, he will move onto shooting for Awara Pagal Deewana 2. “I love the character of Yeda Anna because he is tough but forgetful and that in itself is a comedy. I am looking forward to meet Yeda Anna, Chotta Chattri and Guru Gulab Khatri again. I am looking forward to play all my iconic characters again,” he adds.
Hera Pheri 4 is slated to go on floors in the second half of 2023 with Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty. It will be directed by Farhad Samji and target a big theatrical release in 2024. It’s among the most anticipated comedies of present times and the hope is on the three characters to go on yet another hilarious adventure.
