Excitement is building up as the third installment of the popular Fukrey franchise is all set to hit the screens this Thursday. While fans eagerly anticipate the return of the beloved fukra gang, there’s been a curious absence of Ali Fazal, who portrayed the character Zafar in the previous two films. However, we’ve learned exclusively that Ali Fazal’s presence will not be entirely missing from Fukrey 3. In fact, he will make a special appearance towards the end of the film.
A reliable industry source shared with us, “Yes, Ali has a small part in Fukrey 3, although the makers have kept it under wraps and haven’t included him in the promotional material. He will be reprising his role as Zafar from the previous two films and will make an entrance towards the film’s conclusion.” But that’s not all. The source also disclosed that Fukrey 3 drops a tantalizing hint about the fourth installment. “Fukrey 3 also provides a clue about what’s to come next. This is where Ali’s character Zafar comes into play, indicating that the fourth part of the franchise will kick off with his character,” the source revealed. This certainly spells good news for avid fans of the Fukrey series.
Directed by Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under the banner of Excel Entertainment, Fukrey 3 stars Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, and Varun Sharma. The film is scheduled for release on September 28, 2023.
