Director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba says Fukre 3 to show Coronavirus situation

Filmmaker Mrigdeep Singh Lamba said that he is trying with the idea of touching upon the Covid-19 situation in the third part of his hit franchise film Fukrey. Lamba said like the previous two instalments Fukrey (2013) and Fukrey Returns (2017), the third one too will be high on entertainment and raise a social message.

Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment are the producers of the franchise. The director said the team is contemplating to talk about the current situation of the pandemic and lockdown in Fukrey 3.

“This part too will have a strong message that people will take away and it will be delivered in a humorous way. The original story doesn’t mention it (about Covid-19). But we have been contemplating. We have discussed it. We need to be careful how we show it (Covid-19 situation) it shouldn’t seem forceful,” Lamba told PTI.

He further added that if the team is unable to crack an idea revolving around the pandemic situation for Fukrey franchise, he plans to make a separate full-fledged film on it.

“We are trying with the idea to do (something) on Covid-19 or the current situation in a humorous way. We will definitely do something about it and will make something and need to crack the right idea,” he added.

“We had started working on it before lockdown and now we connect via phone and have got a story in place and the writing is almost 80 per cent complete. We are working on the screenplay, which is almost done. Once things start to normalise and we have rules in place, then we will decide how and when to take it ahead. We will understand the ground reality before going on floors. The production was earlier slated to begin by October-November but nothing is certain now,” Lamba added.
