14 Nov – Akshay Kumar recently apologised for deciding to withdraw from the third instalment of his hit movie, "Hera Pheri".
The actor, who was replaced by Kartik Aaryan despite previously revealing that the film will be one of his three new sequel projects aside from "Awara Paagal Deewana 2" and "Welcome 3", cited "creative differences" as the reason for his departure.
"See, the film was offered to me, I was told about it. But the screenplay, script and everything... I was not satisfied; I was not happy with it. I have to just not say it, I have to do what people want to see and that is why, I backed out," he explained at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit 2019.
