Fukrey 3 : The successful franchise will now be producing a third one, says director Mirghdeep Singh Lamba. The director under whose supreme talents were the first two movies directed, now confirmed the reports of a third movie being in the pipeline. The movie starred Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Manjot Singh and Pankaj Tripathi in pivotal roles.
The director was seen at the commemoration ceremony for an animated kids show Fukrey Boyzzz, when he confirmed the news. The series is launched under the collaboration of Discover Kids and Excel Entertainment. The director asserted that the creative team of the movie has already come up with an idea to take the story forward and now, the third installment to the movie is in the pipeline.
The director, who has successfully directed the first two parts expressed his desire to try movies from other spaces besides comedy but said that returning to direct Fukrey would always feel like a homecoming. The director also revealed that several drafts for the movie came forward but none were liked by the team. However, the news is absolutely confirmed that the script for Fukrey 3 is definitely being written.
Mrighdeep told during the launch that his team is conscious about the movie and that they have to put out something better than before as there was a long haul between the first and the second installment of the movie. He added that adding sequels to an already popular movie is difficult.
The pressure increases as more sequels to a movie are introduced and the director accepts that the audience needs to be engaged not just in the jokes but a story. A solid storyline is what that will take this franchise forward, as jokes and punchlines are successfully managed by the creative team but a strong narrative is what the upcoming Fukrey sequel requires the most.
At the launch of the animated series, Mrighdeep spoke at length about the kind of movie the ardent fans of Fukrey franchise should be expecting. The animated series features similar characters from the movie and the director is overwhelmed with the popularity which the movie has been tracing. The director was a little sceptical about the characters being turned into animations but ultimately was amazed to see how well the team of Fukrey Boyzzz has done the job. The idea of being possessive towards his characters is just natural but now that his characters will be eternally etched in the minds of the kids, he is ecstatic.
