Shruti Haasan has turned down Bollywood film "Hera Pheri 3" due to her busy work schedule.

The svelte actress currently has too many projects, including films from both Bollywood and South Indian industry and has no dates for the Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham starrer.

"Shruti Haasan was approached for 'Hera Pheri 3', but due to her date commitments to her two southern films and her soon to be announced Hindi project, she could not go through with it. She does hope to work with Abhishek Bachchan in the future," Shruti's spokesperson told IANS.

The "Welcome Back" actress has two Bollywood films -- Nishikant Kamat's "Rocky Handsome" and Tigmanshu Dhulia "Yaara" and three South films -- "Puli" opposite Vijay, "Vedalam" opposite Ajith and "Singam 3" opposite Suriya in Tamil.

Due to her busy schedule, there were reports that she has also walked out of Ajay Devgn's film, "Baadshaho".

Meanwhile, expectations from comedy film "Hera Pheri 3" are sky-high as its previous instalments enjoyed box office success. The flick also marks the comeback of the "Dostana" boys.

Directed by Neeraj Vora, the film also stars Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty, Esha Gupta and Neha Sharma in pivotal roles. A continuation of "Phir Hera Pheri", the film is expected to be shot in Mumbai, Dubai and Las Vegas.

Currently, Abhishek is busy shooting in Akshay and Riteish Deshmukh starrer "Housefull 3", while John will next be seen in "Dishoom" and "Force 2".
