‘Remove Farhad Samji from Hera Pheri’ cries get louder: Fanclubs and trade expers share their views | Bollywood
The chatter around Hera Pheri 3 refuses to die down anytime soon. First, the makers were asked (by fans) to get actor Akshay Kumar back for the third instalment, after Kumar had confirmed that he has opted out of the franchise, and now that he is finally on board, it appears the fans aren’t too pleased with filmmaker Farhad Samji helming the project, also starring Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal.
On Friday evening, a twitter handle called Akkistan, one of the most popular fanclubs of Kumar, urged movie buffs to unite and make ‘Remove Farhad Samji from Hera Pheri’ trend. And it is among the top trends on the social media platform.
Talking to us about why such uproar, Neeraj Raut, the owner of the fanclub says, “Starting from Entertainment (2014), Housefull 3 (2016), Housefull 4 (2019), and the latest Bachchan Pandey (2022), none of Farhad’s films have helped Akshay sir at the box office or content-wise. In fact, it has caused only more damage to his image than do any good.”
This demand for another director for Hera Pheri 3 grew after Samji’s recent directorial, he web series Pop Kaun? received negative reviews across sections. “Akkians were against him from very first day of this news coming out, but we were waiting until this Pop Kaun? show released, and now we are sure he should ruin a classic franchise which has earned critical and commercial acclaim in the past. His content is becoming more cringe with every passing project,” rues Raut, who has also written an open letter to Kumar, urging him and the producers to rethink the decision.
“Other than Farhan, anyone else works. There’s Raj Shandilya, Raj Mehta, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Priyadarshan who directed the OG Hera Pheri… Even Sajid Khan is better than him,” he quips.
While the Hera Pheri fans call for Samji’s removal, trade experts seem divided on the opinion. Trade expert Atul Mohan agrees with the audience’s sentiment and says, “We should respect public opinion. Times have changed now, and while earlier nobody cared who directed a film, now ardent fans want to have a say. Producers should definitely reconsider this and bring on board someone who can take the level of this sequel a notch higher. You don’t need a genius but surely someone sensible to do justice to a popular franchise.”
While trade expert Taran Adarsh agrees that “any amount of twitter trending can influence a major decision”, he adds, “Eventually, this is a call that has to be taken by the producers, the studio and the actors involved.”
Opposing this whole culture of social media trends, trade analyst Komal Nahta notes that it’s too early to comment if a director should helm a project or not and one should wait till the trailer comes out. He elaborates, “Who are they to understand the dynamics of filmmaking? Now if they start deciding who should make a film and who should be cast, then why don’t they start making it? They have a right to comment once the film is available to the public.”

Sonali wrote, “Dear all, I’m overwhelmed with the feedback I’m receiving. I would like to thank all of you, especially the entire press and media for the extremely mature conduct of connecting with me. Being a woman myself, my intention was not to hurt other women. In fact, I have extensively expressed myself time and again in support of us and what is it being a woman. I’m grateful to all of you for reaching out to me personally to appreciate or to criticize. Hope we will be able to have more open exchange of thoughts.”
“In my capacity I am trying to think, support and share warmth not only with women, but with the entire mankind. It will be only strengthening if we women with our vulnerabilities and wisdom shine through as fair and able beings. If we are inclusive and empathetic, we will be able to create a healthier, happier place to be,” she continued.
She also added, “Having said that, if unknowningly, I may have caused pain, I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I do not thrive upon headlines neither do I want to be the center of sensational situations. I’m a diehard optimist and I strongly believe that life indeed is beautiful. Thanks for your patience and support. I have learned a lot from this incident.”
In a recent press meeting, Sonali Kulkarni said, “In India, we, at times, forget that a lot of women are just lazy. They want a boyfriend/husband, who earns well, owns a house, and his performance at work guarantees regular increments. But, in the middle of this, women forget to make a stand for themselves. Women don’t know what will they do. I urge everyone to encourage women and make them self-dependent. So that they are capable enough to share the household expenses with their partners.”
Sonali’s video has now gone viral on social media. She was criticised by Urofi Javed and Sona Mohapatra among others. Sonali was last seen in the 2021 series Whistleblowers on SonyLiv.
Paris Hilton breaks silence on her ‘inappropriate relationship’ with teacher | Hollywood
Paris Hilton has recently released her book ‘Paris: The Memoir,’ which revealed many personal and previously undisclosed details about her life. While the book has been well-received, Paris has admitted that it wasn’t easy for her parents to read it. During an appearance, she shared that she was anxious for her mom Kathy Hilton and dad Richard Hilton to read ‘so much of the book.’ In the book, she shared her inappropriate relationship with an eighth grade teacher, relationship with Jason Shaw and infamous sex tape incident with then boyfriend Rick Salomon.

In a recent interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Paris admitted that she was apprehensive about her parents reading her newly released memoir, Paris: The Memoir, which chronicles her life, struggles, and triumphs. In her memoir, she revealed that she became pregnant with Jason Shaw’s child, but chose to pursue an abortion. In explaining her decision, she wrote, “There was no happy little family at stake. That was not going to happen. Trying to continue that pregnancy with the physical and emotional issues I was dealing with at the time would have been a train wreck for everyone involved. At that moment in my life, I was in no way capable of being a mother. Denying that would have jeopardized the family I hoped to have in the future at a time when I was healthy and healed.”
She recounted not only her relationship with Jason during the early days of The Simple Life, but also detailed her younger years. In one particularly disturbing chapter, Hilton revealed an inappropriate relationship she had with her eighth-grade teacher at a Catholic school.
According to Hilton, the teacher frequently inquired whether her parents were home, and on one occasion, when they were not, he came over to her house. Paris recalled, “I saw a late-model SUV idling at the top of the driveway. I climbed into the passenger seat. Teacher pulled me into his arms and kissed me.”
She also shared her newfound happiness in her relationship with her husband, Carter Reum. She expresseed her love and admiration for him, and their joy was multiplied when they welcomed their son Phoenix Barron via surrogate in February.
She also took to Instagram and shared a long note about her new book, Paris: The memoir and wrote, “Paris: The Memoir is out NOW! I chose to narrate my own audiobook. While it was honestly so hard to write this book and then relive everything again by speaking every word out loud for my audiobook, I’m glad I did it. I hope hearing my story, in my own words, and straight from me encourages you all to tell your stories and embrace your highs and lows and your true selves. Our multitudes and complexities are beautiful. #ThisIsWhoIAm. You can check out my audiobook and learn more about sharing your own story at the link in my memoir.”
Paris rose to fame in the early 2000s with her appearances on reality TV shows like The Simple Life and her party-girl persona. Since then, she has built a successful career as an entrepreneur, launching multiple fashion and beauty lines, fragrances, and even a DJ career.
