Bollywood’s masala potboilers are hot cakes that get sold out at the box office faster than any other cinematic dish. This makes Bollywood actors and actresses scramble to be a part of them even if the film stars several other big names. As Akshay Kumar gears for the fourth installment of his successful Housefull franchise, the star is finally reported to have found the leading lady for this installment, Kriti Sanon.
Sanon may have a few films under her belt but Houseful 4 will mark a big leap for the star. She is said to be joining Jacqueline Fernandez, Kiara Advani, Parineeti Chopra, Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan and Bobby Deol as the cast of the film. While there remains to be a confirmation, Sanon is expected to have been cast to play the lead opposite Kumar.
According to reports, Sanon is said to have walked out of Mohit Suri’s untitled romantic thriller opposite Aditya Roy Kapur to meet dates for Housefull 4. This is the filmmaker’s first film since Half Girlfriend. With Sanon walking out, it is sure to set the director behind schedule.
Housefull 4 will hit the floors this year as it is expected to release on Diwali 2019. Sanon’s presence in the cast will mark her second film under director Sajid Khan’s production banner after Heropanti.
