Akshay Kumar walks out of Hera Pheri and Welcome sequels for this reason 

Apart from his action hero image, actor Akshay Kumar is also known for his amazing comic timing and he has been part of some really amazing Bollywood comedies like 'Hera Pheri', 'Welcome' and 'Awara Pagal Deewana'. While all these franchises are rumored to get sequels, the buzz suggests that, Akshay won't be a part of them. A source close to the development has told Pinkvilla that Akshay has decided to walk out of all these projects as he was not convinced about the vision and quality of the scripts.

The source stated, “Hera Pheri, Welcome, and Awara Pagal Deewana are three of the most loved franchises led by Akshay Kumar, and he was quite keen to revisit the iconic films. However, after several rounds of meetings, he has decided to take a step back, as he couldn’t align with the broad script idea.”

The source added, "Akshay Kumar is well aware of his fans’ expectations of him in these comedy franchises. He refused to compromise on the quality of these scripts, as attempts to remake these sequels without proper thought and with other actors have already failed in the past.”

The source concluded, “Akshay Kumar already has a busy calendar and is choosing his future scripts very carefully. He might opt for a fresh, new comedy than ride on the popularity of past franchises with half-baked scripts.”


On the work front, Akshay was last seen in the film 'Ram Setu' which was underwhelming on critical as well as commercial fronts.
