Hera Pheri is returningMay 28th, 2009 - 4:04 am ICT by Sampurn Wire
No, we are not talking about the Feroz Nadiadwala produced “Hera Pheri’ and “Hera Pheri 2′.
“Hera Pheri’, the original 1976 hit was produced by Prakash Mehra who recently passed away.
Now his son Puneet who’s been trying to make movies for years has decided to wake up and carry forward the late filmmaker’s legacy by remaking the 70s blockbuster.
Not a bad idea at all, since all his orginal ideas have not clicked.
The film is supposed to go on the floors by the end of this year.
A close friend of the Mehra family said, “It came as a surprise when Puneet decided to remake the Amitabh Bachchan-Vinod Khanna starrer “Hera Pheri’. He believes that the remake of the film is a viable proposition.”
Puneet added, “We miss our father very much. We didn’t expect his end to come so soon. He had a lung infection, which unfortunately spread into his blood.”
He also informed the whereabouts of his brothers, “I have an interesting idea to carry forward his legacy. As for my brothers, Sumeet is settled abroad while Amit is planning to start his own production house.”
He’s yet to finalise the cast but chances are he might consider Abhishek Bachchan and Akshaye Khanna as the original starred their respective fathers. Of course if those two decide to work with a newbie like him
He also said that he would make an announcement shortly. So better wait and watch to see if Puneet can finally fulfill his dad’s dream. -Sampurn Media
