After Race 3, Bobby Deol joins Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh for Housefull 4
Bollywood actor Bobby Deol is all set to come on board for the fourth installment of Sajid Nadiadwala’s Housefull franchise alongside his Ajnabee co-star Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. Interestingly, Sajid Nadiadwala’s first film as a producer was with Dharmendra and Housefull 4 will be his maiden venture with Bobby. Houseful 4 will also witness Sajid Khan donning the director’s hat again for the blockbuster franchise.
Bobby has earlier worked with Akshay in four films – Ajnabee, Dosti: Friends Forever, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Sathiyo and Thank You. He is currently busy shooting for Race 3 in Abu Dhabi along with Salman Khan.
"I am really looking forward to collaborate with both the Sajids. I've always wanted to work with Sajid Nadiadwala and finally it's happening," Bobby said in a statement given to IANS.
"Akshay and I share a great rapport and it will be fun working with him again.” ‘Housefull 4' is a big franchise and I can't wait for the film to start," added the actor.
Talking about the reception of Housefull franchise, Sajid had earlier said, “I was very sure that Housefull will do well, though I was surprised to see that it did this well. People say that my film Humshakals (2014) got bad reviews, but so did Housefull. These movies are fun cinema, where logic takes a back seat.”
On the other hand, actress Sonakshi Sinha's spokesperson has quashed all the reports which claimed that the actress was in talks for the project. A statement issued on Tuesday read, "Sonakshi Sinha surely has many films in the pipeline and every now and then we keep hearing speculations about her signing some film. And one such recent rumour is that the actress is doing 'Housefull 4'. However, none of this is true. Sonakshi will be shooting for 'Dabangg 3' around the same time as 'Housefull 4' goes on the floors."
Housefull 4 is set for a Diwali 2019 release.
