The first movie Hera Pheri was the remake of 1989 Malayalam film Ramji Rao Speaking, was directed by Priyadarshan and released in 2000. All credits goes to the Hera Pheri team for creating an ideal trio of merry-makers by featuring celebrated actors like Akshay Kumar as Raju, Suniel Shetty as Shyam and Paresh Rawal as Babu Bhaiya.
The movie met with success and soon became an ‘all-time-favourite’ film and is enjoyed even with the same excitement as they are watching it for the first time.
In 2006, the filmmakers returned with a sequel titled ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ and once again the movie ruled over the silver screen. Since then people are impatiently waiting for a third instalment.
