The Hindi-language comedy film franchise Fukrey is extremely popular among the Indian audience. Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba, the first part was released in 2013 and the second in 2017. The first part was confirmed by the filmmaker on social media in September 2020. He had tweeted: “#fukrey #volume3 Taiyyar Agaaz.” This particular sequel will star Ali Fazal, Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh and Pankaj Tripathi. The shoot of Fukrey 3 will commence from April.
In a media interaction, Mrighdeep said: “We are very excited. We will start shooting from early April, so we are just two months away now. Presently the prep is going on and we are in the process of finalising the locations and the remaining of the cast. Like always, the film is set in Delhi and 90 percent of it will be shot there.”
He also added that the third part of the film will be shot abroad. “We haven’t decided on where exactly we will be shooting internationally as yet, but we are definitely going abroad with Fukrey 3,” he said adding there will be new additions to the lead cast.
When asked about how different this part will be from the previous two instalments, he replied: “With the first film turning into a second part and the second into third, your stakes become high and the scale becomes bigger. But the fun, humour and nuances remain similar to Fukrey 1 as the characters are the same. So it’s just how they start seeing other areas in their own Fukra way and what chaos they bring into those areas is what Fukrey 3 is all about. It’s a continuation of part 2 and we have already finished scripting.”
He also added that a lot of new things will be seen in this part. “There are a lot of layers in the film this time. We can’t repeat what we did in part 1 and part 2, so in terms of the story and events there are new problems that come in front of them and how they solve it is the story. It’s a step ahead from what 1 and 2 were,” Mrighdeep said.
