September 5, 2023
After a long six-year wait, fans of the hit comedy film franchise Fukrey are gearing up for the much-anticipated release of “Fukrey 3.” The trailer for the film, which was recently unveiled, promises another rollercoaster ride of laughter and mischief as the quirky gang reunites to take on a formidable opponent in the world of politics.
Lovable nostalgic comedy
The Fukrey 3 trailer brings back the lovable and eccentric characters that fans have grown to adore. Pulkit Samrat returns as Hunny, joined by Manjot Singh as Lali Halwai and Varun Sharma as Choocha. Their comical escapades, this time, revolve around the indomitable Richa Chadha, reprising her role as Bholi Punjaban. Under the “expert” astrological guidance of the enigmatic Pankaj Tripathi’s Panditji, chaos and hilarity ensue.
The trailer opens with Pulkit and Varun’s nostalgic journey down memory lane as they reminisce about their school days. However, the plot takes a twist when they decide to enter the political arena and challenge Richa Chadha’s character, who is determined to reclaim her ‘old life.’ The result is a humorous face-off between the gang and the fiery Bholi Punjaban, leaving fans wondering who will emerge victorious this time.
While fans eagerly await the release of “Fukrey 3,” new posters for the film have been unveiled, heightening the excitement for what promises to be another laugh-out-loud installment in this beloved desi comedy franchise. Notably, Ali Fazal, who was part of the first two Fukrey films, is not part of this new adventure.
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and produced under the banner of Excel Entertainment by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, “Fukrey 3” is set to hit theaters on September 28, 2023. The film had several changes in its release date, initially slated for September 7 before being rescheduled to December 1. It secured its current release date after Prabhas’ “Salaar” was postponed, paving the way for the Fukrey gang to take center stage.
For fans of Pankaj Tripathi, who plays the quirky Panditji, “Fukrey 3” is just one of several exciting sequel projects on his horizon. The acclaimed actor is also set to appear in “Stree 2,” “Mirzapur 3,” and “Criminal Justice 4,” following his recent release in “OMG 2.” Tripathi shared his thoughts on doing sequels, highlighting the balance between familiarity and potential monotony. He remarked, “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 the third or fourth part.’ But since it’s a success, maybe it is getting made.”
As the countdown to the release of “Fukrey 3” continues, fans can’t wait to see what hilarious antics the gang has in store and how they’ll fare in their electoral battle against the formidable Bholi Punjaban. With a star-studded cast and a legacy of laughter behind them, “Fukrey 3” is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films of 2023.
