With many prequels undergoing the grind for sequels, filmmakers have been cashing on the phenomenon to enrich the entertainment experience for the audience. Recently, the announcement of Hera Pheri 3 had created a lot of buzz in the media. The film that will retain its original stars will be directed by Indra Kumar. Following the announcement, the film was expected to go on floors in 2019, however, sources have confirmed that the film will go on floors in 2020.

Reports suggest that the makers of the film have already announced the same to invite investors for the film to commence the further proceeding of making the sequel.

"Hera Pheri 3 was announced based on a one-line idea that was narrated to the entire cast. While Akshay Kumar had given a go ahead to the film, he was very clear on the fact that he would allot his date only after a bound script is in place. He is in no hurry to start shooting for the film mainly because he knows the expectation that audience have from the film and he doesn't want to release the film just to bank on the brand name. The idea has been developed a couple of times, but the outcome was not satisfactory which has got the film back to square one", said a source to a leading entertainment portal.

"Firoz Nadiadwala is an independent producer who usually bank rolls a project based on crowd funding. As the shooting of Hera Pheri 3 came to halt with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in lead, the producer landed in a cash crunch. After he convinced Akshay Kumar to come on board, the investors have regained their interest on the project and have agreed to fund the same however nothing apart from star-cast has been locked as of now," added the source.

Elaborating about the shooting schedule and pre-production of the film, the source said, "Director Indra Kumar is currently busy with the post production of Total Dhamaal and he would shift his focus to Hera Pheri 3 from January 2019. He will sit with the creative team of the film and indulge in the brain storming sessions to develop the screenplay. The earliest that the film can go on floors is the last quarter of 2019 and release in the second half of 2020 provided that the team is able to lock an interesting script."
