Dhoni and Raina to join Akshay,John,Riteish in Housefull 2?

If two dozen top league actors weren’t enough for Housefull 2, here is more. The film will now also see cricketers rubbing shoulders with the likes of Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Riteish Deshmukh in this Sajid Khan film. Early indications are that Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina have already been finalised for the film.

Housefull 2 would be the first release after IPL 2012 and arrives on 27th April. Keeping this in mind, Sajid Khan has included cricket elements in the film’s script so that it turns out to be just the right follow up to the cricket season”, informs a well placed source from the film’s unit, “With this latest development, audience will get a chance to see superstars from Bollywood as well as the cricket world sharing the same space.”

While it is yet to be revealed if the cricketers would also be mouthing dialogues or would basically be playing themselves, there are confirmed reports of dates being already worked out with them.

“Dhoni and Raina are key members of the Indian squad and have a busy schedule ahead. However, Sajid Nadiadwala‘s prior relationship with Indian cricket team is turning out to be handy here”, the source continues, “He has already had preliminary discussions and it is just a matter of the cricketers shooting for the film. They are movie buffs themselves and want Housefull 2 to be movie they wish to watch immediately after an exhaustive IPL season.”

Though cricketers would certainly be stepping into Housefull 2, Nadiadwala is quite positive that the top league would comply due to his earlier relationship with them, as seen in his Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar starrer Mujhse Shaadi Karogi.

“He had managed to rope in Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Siddhu, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan, Srinath and Parthiv Patel in an all-important climax sequence of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi“, he continues, “Now a cricket sequence features an important part of Housefull 2 as well.”

When contacted Sajid Nadiadwala refused to comment on the names of the cricketers who have been approached for the film. Currently in London, he sent back a text message stating, “It is too early to say anything as of now.”
