APD 2 will be a brand-new narrative that will take these crazy characters on yet another exhilarating adventure filled with humour, wit, entertainment, and loads of action. The script is locked, and the film is expected to go into production later this year.”
Source also told the portal that Baaghi 2 and 3 director Ahmed Khan will be helming the project. “Firoz and Ahmed have locked in a cracking script that promises an unlimited dose of entertainment.

Everything is in place as things stand today, and one hopes that it goes as planned.”
The sequel will be also produced by Firoz Nadiadwala, who is the producer of Hera Pheri 3.
