Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani have announced the return of the original Fukrey cast, but it seems Ali Fazal will not be part of the third installment in the popular comedy franchise. The new posters are all from Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, Manoj Singh, Pulkit Samrat and Pankaj Tripathi but not Ali Fazal.

Farhan Akhtar shared two new posters of the film on Tuesday, writing on Twitter, “Iss baar hoga chamatkaar, straight from Jamnapaar! #Fukrey3 arrives in cinemas on September 7, 2023 (this time the magic comes from across the banks of the Jamuna River).” The film is scheduled to be released around the Janmashtami weekend on September 7. Mrighdeep Singh Lamba is directing.
The first poster shows Richa as former gangster Bholi Punjaban, sitting on a throne made of sugarcane. Varun Sharma, who plays Choocha, is at her feet. Pankaj Tripathi and Pulkit Samrat sit on either side of Richa while Manjot Singh, who plays Lali, struggles behind the throne. Pankaj Tripathi plays Panditji and Pulkit Samrat plays Hunny in the film franchise.
The second poster shows all the male cast making a human pyramid in order to climb a slanted brick wall. The baseline of the film read: ‘Ek naya chumatkar from Jamnapaar’.
Director Mrighdeep Singh Lamba had confirmed that the Fukrey 3 shoot would wrap up in June last year. He shared a picture of a cake with ‘Fukrey 3 wrap’ written on it, he had written it on Instagram: ‘It’s a WRAP #fukrey3. Thank you #teamfukrey3. You were great. Piece by piece fuk fuk fuk fuk. Will definitely miss shooting madness. Okay bye.”
Talking about Fukrey 3, Varun Sharma had told India Today last August, “I think the movie will be very funny. This is a certain movie that is very special for all of us. It was a start for all of us. Now to To revisit the same character after so many years and start where we left off was remarkable. The movie is going to be phenomenal and we’re really excited about it.”
