Exceeding all expectations, Fukrey Returns has turned out to be one of the biggest money-spinners of 2017 at the box office. The audience has given the thumbs up to the comic-caper and producers are laughing their way to the bank. If insiders are to be believed, the makers are so ecstatic that they want to capitalise on the stupendous success of the franchise and producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani have already given their go-ahead to the next instalment of the franchise.
Fukrey Returns, which is a sequel to Fukrey, retained the original cast of Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat, Manjot Singh and Richa Chadha. And, in all likelihood, they will continue their characters in Fukrey 3 as well.
A source reveals to a leading tabloid, "They will return to essay the same characters, with the same quirks. While there was a gap of four years between the first two instalments, the third part is likely to hit screens by mid-2019."
Reportedly, director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba has been asked to start writing the third part already. The film will mount floors and soon as the script is ready.
Produced by Excel Entertainment, Fukrey Returns released on 8th December and earned over Rs. 50 crores within days of release.
