Fukrey and Fukrey Returns still have a huge viewership on online platforms. The Mrigdeep Singh Lamba directorial featured young actors including Ali Fazal, Pulkit Samrat, Richa Chadha, Varun Sharma, and Manjot Singh in leading characters. The film series is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhawani.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, all film industries around the globe have been affected. Many ongoing projects have been postponed and those movies who were ready to release are now in the waiting list. Many directors have cancelled shootings following the lockdown and health advisories due to COVID-19.
Seems that Farhan and Ritesh did not care about the epidemic at all and kept themselves busy in making the threequel of Fukrey series. It is being said that the shooting is already done and the movie is set to release. However, the coronavirus has stopped it from hitting the cinema screens and the makers are waiting for a new date to release the movie.
The first two instalments Fukrey (2013) and Fukrey Returns (2017) turned out to be decent hits at the box-office which is why it doesn’t come as a surprise that Farhan and Ritesh are looking to take the franchise forward.
