The film is the third instalment of the franchise which began with Yamla Pagla Deewana in 2011. Directed by Samir Karnik, the film minted over Rs 150 crores at the Box Office. The trio returned with the second instalment Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 directed by Sangeeth Sivan in 2013 but it turned out to be a dud. The second installment collected Rs 48 crore.
Meanwhile, reports suggest that actress Sonakshi Sinha will do a special song for the film while Kriti Kharbanda of 'Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana' will play the leading lady. The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal.
'YPD Phir Se' will also have special appearances by Salman Khan and evergreen beauty Rekha. The music for the film has been composed by Sachet-Parampara, Meet Bros, Tanishk Bagchi, Sharib-Toshi and Vishal Mishra.
