The Fukrey 3 trailer opens with Pulkit and Varun’s walk down memory lane as they revisit their school days. Fastforward and they are planning to fight an election against Richa Chadha, who is hellbent on getting her ‘old life back’. What happens next is a face-off between Richa and Pulkit, but who will win this time?
New Fukrey 3 posters were unveiled recently amid countdown to the trailer. Since its inception in 2013, Fukrey has captured the hearts of audiences as one of Hindi cinema’s most beloved desi comedy franchises. Ali Fazal, who is now married to Richa Chadha, was also a part of the first two installments but is not part of the new film.
Fukrey 3 had several changes in its release date
Fukrey 3 is directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and produced under the banner of Excel Entertainment by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. It will release in theatres on September 28. It was earlier slated to release on September 7. The slot was taken by Shah Rukh Khan’s Jawan following which it was pused to December 1. When Prabhas’ Salaar, which was scheduled for September 28 release, got postponed, Fukrey 3 acquired the vacant slot.
Fukrey 3 is among Pankaj Tripathi’s several sequel projects
Besides Fukrey 3, Pankaj Tripathi mostly has sequels like Stree 2, Mirzapur 3 and Criminal Justice 4 in his kitty after his recent release OMG 2. He told PTI in an interview, “Doing sequels is easy because you know the world and character. However, at the same time it is boring, because you think, ‘How long will this carry forward, like third or fourth part’. But since it’s a success, maybe it is getting made.”
