Hera Phera 3 is one of the trending topics in B-Town for last few days. Majorly because Akshay Kumar, who was an integral part of the last two parts and he decided to walk out of the film for the third part. Kartik Aaryan will be playing his role but it has been revealed today that Varun Dhawan was offered Akshay’s part first.

As reported by Bollywood Hungama, "Both Firoz and Anand wanted Varun Dhawan to step into the shoes of Raju, as he has the conviction of doing comedies like no one else. The two producers also made an offer to David Dhawan to direct the film with Rohit Dhawan as the co-director.”

The source further elaborated, "While the offer was very tempting, Varun didn't want to jump into the franchise created by Akshay Kumar. He has tremendous respect for Akshay Kumar and didn't want to use the not-so-good equation between Akshay and Firoz, to climb the ladder of stardom. Hera Pheri 3 is a sure-shot blockbuster, but Varun stepped out of the film out of respect for Akshay. His father, David Dhawan also felt the same.”

Varun Dhawan’s Bhediya is out in cinemas now and it is doing well for past few days.
