Actor Rana Daggubati, who has replaced veteran actor Nana Patekar in Housefull 4 and has started shooting for the film.Rana on Friday tweeted: “Heading to the sets of ‘Housefull 4’…..Watch it here
Sajid Nadiadwala is all set for the fourth installment of Housefull franchise. Housefull 4 will mark the return of Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. But, this movie will have many new entrants including Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde.
The multistarrer is not only big on the cast but will also be released in 3D with tons of VFX. In the month of July, Akshay Kumar was sporting a fresh salt and pepper look for the film. As it deals with reincarnation, it seems like Akshay Kumar is set for yet another interesting look.
In a leaked photo shared by fanclubs, Akshay Kumar is seen sporting a bald look with a moustache as he looks pretty intense in the shot. He is seen with man who’s face can’t be seen. The look seems very much inspired by Bajirao or a historic character. It seems the reincarnation plot is through the ages and this is one of the looks Akshay would be sporting in the film. Housefull 4 has been mired in controversies as Nana Patekar and director Sajid Khan have been accused of sexual harassment.
While Nana has reportedly stepped away from the film, Sajid Khan has stepped down as the director. It was revealed on Saturday that Housefull 3 director Farhad Samji will be helming the film. Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Housefull 4 will release on Diwali 2019.
A few months back, Firoz Nadiadwala announced Hera Pheri 3 with Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty and Paresh Rawal in lead, and confirmed that the third instalment of the franchise would be directed by Indra Kumar. Following the announcement, there was a strong buzz within the industry that the film will go on floors early next year and hit the big screen during the Christmas 2019 weekend. However, sources close to the development have confirmed that there is absolutely nothing in place for Hera Pheri 3.
“Hera Pheri 3 was announced based on a one-line idea that was narrated to the entire cast. While Akshay Kumar had given a go ahead to the film, he was very clear on the fact that he would allot his date only after a bound script is in place. He is in no hurry to start shooting for the film mainly because he knows the expectation that audience have from the film and he doesn’t want to release the film just to bank on the brand name. The idea has been developed a couple of times, but the outcome was not satisfactory which has got the film back to square one” said a source adding further that an official announcement by producer has been made to get some funds from the investors to get the film rolling.
Akshay Kumar’s upcoming projects include 2.0, Kesari, Good News and Housefull 4. The actor is reportedly also in talks with YRF; however we have not heard anything from either of the sides as of now. While a few fans might be disappointed given the fact that Hera Pheri 3 has been postponed, we believe that this is good news as Akshay Kumar and team don’t want to serve the audience with a substandard product. Stay tuned for more updates on Hera Pheri 3.

Yes, according to reports Riteish will contest elections from his hometown – Latur constituency. He will contest the Lok Sabha 2019 elections from Congress party. Now, this is a major development as it marks his transition from a Bollywood celeb to a politician. Earlier in 2016 when he was posed with this question, he denied the same and said that he was not interested in entering politics then. But now, it seems right time has come for him to take this step.
On the film front, he is working on Total Dhamaal with Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit and Ajay Devgn. He is also filming for Housefull 4 with Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol.
