Saira Banu is a veteran Indian actress known for her remarkable journey in Bollywood. The actress has given some of the most loved films in the industry. One of those films was Hera Pheri. Hera Pheri is a classic Bollywood comedy film released in 1976, starring Saira Banu, Amitabh Bachchan, and Vinod Khanna in lead roles. The film was directed by Prakash Mehra and became a significant success in Indian cinema.
As the film clocks 47 years the veteran actress took to her Instagram and shared a picture along with a couple of video clips from the movie. While taking to her social media the actress wrote, “ It was a very happy and enjoyable time to have done “HERA PHERI”. @amitabhbachchan Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna played crafty tricksters in the movie and I played a cunning female swindler. Director Prakash Mehra let the Three of us have a free hand at all the outrageously funny scenes. I had already done a lot of work with Vinod in films such as “PURAB AUR PASCHIM”, “AAROP”, and “NEHLE PE DEHLA” and with Amitabh in “ZAMEER”.

We had a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and the Three of us would work at suggestions and improvisations to make the scenes riotously funny especially in the scenes where Vinod is constantly trying to tone down Amitabh from being overly romantic to the heroine. My own favourite scene is where I am rattling off in Marathi and Vinod is trying to curb Amitabh’s zealous attempts to sit next to me. Please see and enjoy these scenes. #47YearsToHeraPheri”
As soon as Saira Banu dropped the picture alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna, fans reacted to it. A fan shared, “our acting in funny scenes is wonderful, how effortlessly you do scenes from HERA PHERI & PADOSAN”. Another fan wrote, “Absolutely love this film and thank you so Ma'am for sharing the trivia”. While others dropped heart emojis.
