Hera Pheri has been in troubled waters for a long time. But now it seems that things are easing out for the film. Suniel Shetty says that he is excited about working on the third film in the Hera Pheri franchise, and the team will start working on the film by the end of this year.
“Talks are on with Priyadarshan for the third part. It should happen by the end of the year. There is a lot of discussion around it. I am excited for it,” Shetty told PTI.

The 57-year-old actor said that he loved the part one but did not enjoy the second film that much.

“People loved and related to the honesty, simplicity and the struggle of these three men in the film and found humour in their struggles.”

“I don't love Phir Hera Pheri as much as I liked the first one. (It had) honesty, great writing and the pure genius of Priyadarshan,” he said.

Suniel Shetty, who was last seen in Sidharth Malhotra's A Gentleman (2017), said he wants to work in films that have good content.

“I am looking forward to doing a lot of good work, be it here or in the south in the few years. I am doing roles that suit me," he said.

“I am doing films in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam. However. I will talk about them when the time is right," Shetty added.

Directed by Priyadarshan, Hera Pheri released in 2000 and also featured veteran actor Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar.

It revolved around a quirky, kind-hearted garage owner Baburao Ganpatrao Apte (Rawal), a cunning loafer Raju (Kumar) and a struggling pauper Shyam (Shetty).

The trio returned with a sequel Phir Hera Pheri in 2006, which was directed by Neeraj Vora.
