Fukrey 3 Is Currently In The Works
Fukrey 3 is currently in its developmental phase as the team has already cracked an idea to take the story forward
More often than not, one would assume for any film to become a hit, it needs to have the biggest celebrities. And there was a time when that was true, however, with time, things have been changing. Now, audiences are more drawn towards content rather than big names. One such, small-budget film, to make it big in Bollywood was Fukrey, which was released back in 2013. The film starred Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, Manjot Singh and Varun Sharma in titular roles. It was loved by audiences which is why the team was later compelled to create a sequel, Fukrey Returns which hit screens in 2017.
After the success of the first two installments, it has now been confirmed that a third part of Fukrey is also already in its development phase. Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba shared that the team has cracked an idea to take the story forward. He said, "We are right now developing the third part, along with this we are developing two other scripts. Fukrey 3 is definitely being written. But we want to maintain the quality. We have written drafts for Fukrey 3 which we haven’t liked. We are conscious that what we put out should be better. There was a reason that the first and second part had a long gap."
Mrighdeep added that writing sequels to a popular film is always difficult. He explained, "The pressure increases as the film installments increase. The audience has to be engaged not just in jokes and actions but story. We are confident about writing jokes, once we know the situation. But we need a good story first. There is one idea we are now currently working on, which is a mad one. It takes the story ahead but needs some time to cook." As of now, he is overwhelmed at the upcoming TV show, Fukrey Boyzzz - an animated series for children based on the characters of the original film - which will be releasing on Discovery Kids on October 12.
