75 Crore Budget For Special Effects In Housefull 4



As Akshay Kumar  gears up to do his first costume drama producer Sajid Nadiadwala is readying himself to make the  most expensive  film of his career,if not one of the most expensive films  in the history  of  Indian cinema.

 We now come to  know that  the budget for  the special effects  alone in Housefull 4 is a staggering  Rs.75 crores,  give or take  a few crores.

 Confirming this  whopping figure Nadiadwala says, “You got the budget for our SFX right, and it should not surprise you.  Housefull 4 will be the first Bollywood film to  go into the reincarnation/costume drama space  within the comedy genre. We  cannot afford to let the visual spectacle be tacky just because we will give the audience a star-studded film. Gone are  the days when filling a film with stars was enough incentive for audiences to flock theatres.Now the audiences  understand technical  finesse. We  have to compete with  The Avengers, Wonder Woman and Baahubali.”

 Housefull 4 will be staged in  two different time zones, one in  the present and the  other going back to the  days of chariots elephants  gladiators and  sword fights.

Akshay Kumar who has never done  a costume drama before is already  prepping in what  Nadiadwala calls  the  ‘Dharamveer-meets-Baahubali’ costumes.

Interestingly director Sajid Khan had a massive fall-out with Nadiadwala after Housefull 2. The  third segment  was directed by Sajid-Farhad.

Now Nadiadwala is worried on how to tell  the Sajids apart on the  sets.

“In Housefull 3 we had at least Farhad along with Sajid. Now it’s back to Sajid only . Khan and Nadiadwala,” sighs  the producer of  what could be  the most expensive film ever produced in India.
