The original cast of the 'Hera Pheri' franchise stepped in to save the day after John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan bowed out of the third installment.
Neeraj Vohra's plans to reunite 'Dostana' duo John Abraham and Abhishek Bachchan for the third installment of 'Hera Pheri' went for a toss when the former bowed out of the film to wrap up Rohit Dhawan's upcoming action-adventure, 'Dishoom', bringing shooting to a halt three months after it went on the floors in Dubai last June.
Then, a source close to the development informed Mirror, Abhishek who was to play Raju Khabri (portrayed by Akshay Kumar in the preceding films) walked out in December, sending Vohra to his producer, Firoz Nadiadwala , for help. At a press conference recently, Abhishek announced, "I am not going to be doing that film anymore. It just didn't work out."
