“There would no Housefull series without Akshay Kumar,” says ultra-successful producer Sajid Nadiadwala whose films have a way of turning into goldmines effortlessly.
Housefull 4 was roundly condemned by many film critics. Nadiadwala kept quiet. Today it is being counted as not only one of the highest grossing films of the year but also among the largest moneyspinners of Akshay Kumar’s career.
Nadiadwala in an informal conversation explains how much Akshay contributed to the gags and jokes. “He was constantly working on his character, improvising on his lines. He had a ball playing the evil Bala. He was a hundred percent there. We cannot have a Housefull film without him. It’s impossible.”
The fifth part of the Housefull brand is already being planned. However reports that the ever-ambitious Nadiadwala plans to cast in Housefull 5 all the actors from all the 4 films in the Housefull series is just speculative.
“We are yet to script Housefull 5. We hope to crack that soon. Only then will the casting be decided. But yes, Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh are the core cast of Housefull and they will continue as such,” says Nadiadwala.
