A fan on Twitter asked a question by tagging Paresh Rawal, “@Sir PareshRawal sir, is it true that Kartik Aaryan is doing Hera Pheri 3??” To which, Paresh tweeted, “Yes it is true.” Reacting to this news, one person wrote, “No Akshay, No Hera Pheri.” Second person commented, “Ye toh world cup mai haar se bhi zayada dukh bhara news hai (This news is more painful than news of losing World Cup).” Third person wrote, “We want all 3 (Akshay, Suniel and Paresh) in the movie, no one can think Hera Pheri 3 without Akshay.”

Reacting to this news, Kamaal R Khan tweeted, “Since @Sir Paresh Rawal, revealed the secret so let me give full news!@The Aaryan Kartik has singed #HeraPheri3. Paresh and @SunielVShetty will also play their roles. Producer #FerozNadiadwala has asked @BazmeeAnees to direct it. Now Anees Bhai has to choose between #BB3 and #HP3.” He referred to Bhool Bhulaiyaa 3 and Hera Pheri 3. One person wrote, “So Kartik is starting to take over Akshay's movies.”
