"Andar ki baat toh yeh hai ki Akshay Anees Bazmee ke saath comedy phir se karna chahte hai. Lekin Hera Pheri nahin. Bilkul nahin," said a very close source of Akshay, according to E-Times.

The development came a day after there were reports that the filmmaker Firoz Nadiadwala reinitiated talks with Akshay Kumar to convince him to return as Raju.
