Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment has confirmed that they will roll out the third part in the Fukrey franchise.
“[Writer] Vipul Vig is currently working on the script of Fukrey 3,” he said while talking to tabloid Mumbai Mirror.
Fukrey, which was released in 2013, featured Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Richa Chadha, Pankaj Tripathi, Vishakha Singh, Manjot Singh and Priya Anand. The same cast was repeated in the film’s sequel Fukrey Returns (2017), which became a runaway hit. Sharma's character Choocha and his antics became popular with the masses. Both the films were directed by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba.
Sidhwani said that he and others at Excel Entertainment are overwhelmed by the love received by the characters of Fukrey. “There has been so much love for the franchise, especially for the characters of Choocha and Hunny (Samrat), so we need to approach it with a lot of responsibility. He will present us a draft for the film very soon and then we need to go ahead,” he added.
It seems like the same cast will be repeated in the third film as well, but there is no official confirmation yet. Chadha retweeted news about Fukrey 3 today, so we can safely assume she will be part of the film.
