In Hera Pheri 4, Kartik Aaryan initially took Akshay Kumar’s position but was fired after outrage. Response from Paresh Rawal to the casting
The film Welcome 3 starring Akshay Kumar is currently receiving a lot of attention. His other property Hera Pheri was in the news for its next installment a few months ago. Hera Pheri 3, which bizarrely went by the name Hera Pheri 4, was. When Kartik Aaryan took over for Akshay Kumar as the movie’s major character after the Samrat Prithviraj star refused the project, the movie made headlines. Kartik Aaryan appears in Hera Pheri 4 as Paresh Rawal himself has stated.
As soon as the news spread, many began condemning the impending movie and argued that Hera Pheri is solely focused on the trio of Raju, Baburao, and Shyam played by Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, and Suniel Shetty. If you remove any of them from the equation does not make sense at all
Many angry comments to the new casting surfaced after fans learned that Kartik Aaryan had been cast as Raju in Hera Pheri instead of Akshay Kumar due to Akshay no longer being committed to the series and Kartik having success with Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Next, everyone was aware that Kartik had been fired from the project and that Akshay had taken over the franchise.
Paresh Rawal recently confirmed in a chat that Raju played by Akshay Kumar in Hera Pheri 4 was not Kartik Aaryan. In actuality, it was a brand-new role. Kartik had a distinct job and different energy than Raju, the man stated. His character had a unique basis. Reactions should not be feared. And after watching a movie, people forget all the criticisms.
Intriguingly, there have been rumours that Firoz Nadiadwala has two draughts of Hera Pheri 4—one with the original cast, in which Akshay Kumar plays Raju, and the other without him, in which Kartik Aaryan plays Raju from another dimension—rather than just replicating or replacing Akshay Kumar’s role. The same report was corroborated by Paresh Rawal.
On the professional front, Welcome 3 will also have Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar in their original roles. They are expected to appear in Hera Pheri 4 as well, with Sanjay Dutt making a special cameo and Suniel Shetty reprising his role as Shyam.
