Akshay Kumar opens up about walking out of Hera Pheri sequel 

Recently, it was reported that Akshay Kumar has decided to walk out of the upcoming sequels of his iconic films like 'Hera Pheri', 'Welcome' and 'Aawara Pagal Deewana' and he has even been replaced by Kartik Aaryan in one of them. Naturally, fans are not happy as they are sure that no other actor can do justice to Akshay's iconic characters. Recently while speaking with Hindustan Times, Akshay Kumar addressed his fans and revealed why he is not a part of these sequels.

He stated, "Hera Pheri has been a part of me. A lot of people have memories, even I have good memories about it and even I feel sad too that the film has not been made since so many years, like part 3 of the film. And like I said, we have to dismantle things, we have to start thinking in a different way.”

The actor continued, “See, the film was offered to me, I was told about it. But the screenplay, script and everything... I was not satisfied; I was not happy with it. I have to just not say it, I have to do what people want to see and that is why, I backed out. I took a step behind. For me, it’s a part of my life, my journey in a huge way. I feel very sad too. I feel very sad that I’m unable to do it because I am not happy with how the things have changed... with the creative thing. I am not happy with it so, I just backed out.”

Addressing his fans, Akshay said, “I just want to tell my fans that I’m very grateful for them. Just yesterday, I saw ‘No Raju, No Hera Pheri.’ As much as hurt they are, I myself am hurt. It’s a very sad thing, but at the same time they made it trending, thank you very much. I cannot tell you how much my fans show their love and support to me... I apologize to them that I won’t be doing Hera Pheri. Sorry.”
