It’s been long since Sajid Nadiadwala announced the fourth instalment of the comic caper Housefull. Yet again, shot against the Britain backdrop, the film went on floor a few weeks ago. And now we hear that the film has already wrapped up its first schedule in London.
It is a known fact that the Sajid Nadiadwala production Housefull series has always found London at its heart as the earlier films were shot there as well. Wrapping up the first schedule of 25 days in London, the team celebrated the wrap of the first schedule by cutting two cakes. Announcing the wrap, the makers Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment took to Twitter to share, “And it’s a wrap for the 1st schedule of #SajidNadiadwala’s #Housefull4 #LondonDiaries”.
Sajid Khan, who had directed the first two films in the Housefull franchise, has returned to direct the fourth installment in the series. Interestingly, his sister Farah Khan was roped in to choreograph a song, pictures of which had been making the rounds of the internet piquing the interests of the audience.
It was a full house with Akshay Kumar, Kriti Sanon, Bobby Deol, Pooja Hegde, Riteish Deshmukh and Kriti Kharbanda grooving to Farah’s cues. But what gave the song its twist were doppelgangers of the royal family.
Revolving around the theme of reincarnation, the film follows a non-linear narrative and all the flashback sequences will be shot in Rajasthan. After the said London schedule, the team will next fly down to Rajasthan for the next schedule. Besides that, a lavishly mounted set is also being built in Mumbai for the finale.
Besides the lead characters, the franchise regulars like Chunky Panday, Johnny Lever, Boman Irani will also be playing prominent roles in the comedy film. Adding a surprise element will be Nana Patekar who too is an integral part of the cast.
Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala under the banner Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, Housefull 4 will release around Diwali, 2019.
