Akshay Kumar On Why He Quit Hera Pheri 3
In an event organized by Hindustan Times, Akshay Kumar said,
“It (Hera Pheri) is a part of my life and my journey. I am very upset that I am not part of it but I am not happy with how things have shaped up, the creative aspects. So I just backed out. I am grateful to my fans. I saw ‘No Raju, No Hera Pheri’ on trend Twitter. As much as hurt they are, I am hurt too. It is a sad thing. I am very thankful to everyone. My fans love me a lot. Their craze for me is unbound. I apologise to them that I won’t be doing Hera Pheri 3. Sorry.”
Akshay Kumar was last seen in the film Ram Setu. However, the film did not live up to its hype. Five films by Akshay Kumar were released in 2022, Bachchhan Paandey, Samrat Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, Cuttputlli, and Ram Setu, and not a single movie turned out to be successful. He has many projects, like OMG 2, Selfiee, Jolly LLB 3, and many more.
