The outcome of that development is that Anees Bazmee is now in search of another actor to fill in Vicky’s shoes. The filmmaker is in talks with another actor and the name could be announced soon. It may be recalled here that Bazmee had offered the same project to Kartik Aaryan, but it didn’t work out for the ‘Freddy’ star either.
Anees Bazmee has been one of the most successful directors of 2022 and there are reports that he may be offered to direct Hera Pheri 3 that stars Kartik Aaryan. That film may go on floors only in the second half of next year, though.
While Kartik and Vicky are busy shooting, Anees Bazmee has been working on quite a few scripts including No Entry Mein Entry and this untitled film, which was supposed to feature Vicky Kaushal. With Vicky backing out due to date commitments it remains to be seen who will replace him. Sources also revealed that Bazmee wants to start this film soon, as waits for Hera Pheri 3 and No Entry Mein Entry to materialise.
