The responsibility for Hera Pheri going forward is equally shared by Akshay ji, Paresh ji, our company and Suniel ji. We all share a responsibility. Responsibility between us, to the audiences who have been so kind with the affection coming forward and to the trade as well. It is a huge responsibility. It is a moral responsibility. Not just a responsibility that you can weigh in commerce and monetize,” he said.
Hera Pheri, starring Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal was directed by Priyadarshan and was a story of a landlord and his two paying guests who get a chance to get rich when the granddaughter of a famous businessman gets kidnapped and the kidnapper mistakenly calls them for ransom. The sequel was directed by Neeraj Vora, also one of the writers of the original. In this film, the trio have become rich but their greed of having more money brings them back on the streets, leading to madness.
