Bollywood director Anees Bamzee is out of reckoning to direct ‘Hera Pheri 4’ at the discretion of the lead cast and the producer, say reports. Once hailed as the undisputed helmer of the slapstick comedy genre, Bamzee had delivered blockbusters like ‘No Entry’, ‘Welcome’ and ‘Singh Is Kingg’. But, two of his recent failed films ‘Thank You’ and ‘Ready’ have made him run out of luck for the time being. Bamzee is said to have confirmed it, too. Neeraj Vora, who directed ‘Hera Pheri 3’ (titled ‘De Dana Dan’), will continue the successful franchise. The original star cast is just changed.

Akshay Kumar and Suneil Shetty have been replaced with Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh. At the same time, Nana Patekar takes over from Paresh Rawal. Junior B has been applauded for his comic role in Rohit Shetty's ‘Bol Bachchan’. Abhishek didn’t want to take a chance with Bazmee for obvious reasons. Producer Firoze Nadiadwala obliged the actor. Since Bazmee has written the script and is also close to the producer there is every likelihood that he may get to direct the sequel to ‘Welcome’ titled ‘Welcome Back’.
