Many fans were upset when Vidya Balan and Akshay Kumar refused to return to the Bhool Bhoolayya franchise. Karthik Aaryan and Kiara Advani delivered a super-hit affair at the box office. Now, Akki has been replaced by a Gen Z actor in Hera Pheri 3 as well, but KRK claims that Housefull 5 is the third film to see such a turn. Scroll down for all the details.
Akshay’s exit from Hera Pheri 3 was confirmed by Paresh Rawal on his Twitter handle yesterday. Today, the Bell Bottom actor graced the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit and attributed the creative difference behind his big step. He also got emotional talking about his unfortunate decision.
But is Karthik Aaryan also replacing Akshay Kumar in his third successful franchise Housefull? Self-proclaimed critic KRK claimed so and fans were really worried. It’s no secret that Akki has had a worrisome time at the box office, having seen back-to-back flops like Samrat Prithviraj, Katputli and Ram Sethu.
KRK tweeted, “Karthik replaced Akki with #BhoolBhulaiyaa2. Karthik has officially signed #HeraPheri3 to replace @akshaykumar! Karthik has signed the next film of the #Housefull series, which will be official soon. That means Karthik has replaced Akki in his 3 movies. But why? What is the reason? My review is coming. ”
Many took to the comments section and got mixed reactions to KRK’s claims.
One user wrote, “Aukat se jayada fee mangoge to yehi hoga. Movie 10 crore opening le raha 60-70 lifetime or fee chahiye 90 crore lol”
Another defended, “Akshay is not greedy; He has enough money to live on. For money alone, he could never destroy the trio of Hera Faerie.
“Ae Hera Pheri Akki Ever Green Without Akshay,” wrote one fan.
A troll wrote, “Now, Akshay Kumar is a C grade actor compared to Karthik. That’s why every producer wants to replace Akshay Kumar.
