Ve Fukrey goes a long way in setting the tone for the film with the trailer, which promises to deliver on the slapstick brand of cinema, the franchise has grown to be known for. Most notable in the music video is Pankaj Tripathi busting out into a dance alongside the ensemble cast of the film -- starring Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma and Manjot Singh. Tripathi is known to not be much of a dancer which makes his performance in the music video, all the more special.
Ali Fazal was part of the first Fukrey film which released in 2013 - he essayed the role of Zafar. Fazal came back for the franchise's second installment which released in 2017, to reprise his role. Fazal, however, is not a part of Fukrey 3. In January of this year, the actor informed his fans that due to scheduling conflicts between Fukrey 3 and his show Mirzapur, he would not be able to return as Zafar for Fukrey 3.
