EXCLUSIVE: Fukrey 3 to roll from April in Delhi; Mrighdeep Lamba says ‘It’s a step ahead from what 1 & 2 were’
Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba also adds that this is the first time that the story in the Fukrey world will go abroad. However, 90 percent of the movie will be set in Delhi
Mrighdeep Singh Lamba’s Fukrey films has become one of the most popular movie franchises in India. The first part was released in 2013, second in 2017 and the third installment was finally confirmed by the director in September last year. He announced the good news on social media which read, “#fukrey #volume3 Taiyyar Agaaz.” Just like the previous films Fukrey 3 will feature Ali Fazal, Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh and Pankaj Tripathi. It rolls from April.
Confirming the news Mrighdeep told Pinkvilla, “We are very excited. We will start shooting from early April, so we are just two months away now. Presently the prep is going on and we are in the process of finalising the locations and the remaining of the cast. Like always, the film is set in Delhi and 90 percent of it will be shot there.” However, Lamba informs that this is the first time that a Fukrey film will be shot abroad. “We haven’t decided on where exactly we will be shooting internationally as yet, but we are definitely going abroad with Fukrey 3,” says the filmmaker further revealing that new additions will also be made to the lead cast this time.
So how different will the third part be from the first two instalments? “With the first film turning into a second part and the second into third, your stakes become high and the scale becomes bigger. But the fun, humour and nuances remain similar to Fukrey 1 as the characters are the same. So it's just how they start seeing other areas in their own Fukra way and what chaos they bring into those areas is what Fukrey 3 is all about. It’s a continuation of part 2 and we have already finished scripting,” informs Lamba.
He further reveals that a lot of new things should be expected out of the third part. “There are a lot of layers in the film this time. We can’t repeat what we did in part 1 and part 2, so in terms of the story and events there are new problems that come in front of them and how they solve it is the story. It’s a step ahead from what 1 and 2 were,” says Lamba.
Lastly, will Choocha (played by Varun Sharma) find love in this part? “We’ll have to see,” Lamba signs off with a laugh.
