Comedy power houses, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh have teamed up for this successful franchise with industry sources suggesting that that movie will feature two time periods, with one of it being set in Baahubaali’s era and having a reincarnation theme.
Kumar and producer Sajid Nadiadwala seem to be going all out for Housefull 4 as they have already roped in Farhad Samji, screenplay and dialogue writer of several hit comedy franchises including Housefull and Golmaal. DNA reported, “Farhad needed a little bit of persuasion. He directed Housefull 3 with his brother Sajid Samji. They wrote the dialogues for it and Housefull 2. After their split, Farhad, who will now work independently, has been signed by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment as a writer-director for two projects. However, in the case of Housefull 4, he will only pen the screenplay and dialogues.”With too much money being invested in Housefull 4, only time will tell if the film manages to stand up to its franchise’s success.
