That sounds exciting! It’s been quite long since Akki and Abhishek shared screen space. The two came together for the film Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya (2002). Incidentally, Abhishek and Karisma Kapoor, the leading lady of that film, were dating back then.
It would be interesting to see how the two actors get along for 'Housefull 3' as both have a good comic timing.
Since producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan -- the director of Housefull franchise -- are not said to be on talking terms, the movie will have a new director. The film will be writer duo Sajid-Farhad's second directorial venture. Their debut, It's Entertainment, also starring Akshay Kumar, is scheduled for an August 2014 release.
Why does Sajid Nadiadwala want to come up with another Housefull? As per sources, the franchise is a promising one in the masala entertainment space. Housefull 2 even went on to earn 100-crores at the box office. “Sajid plans to keep it going till the time he is able to rope in exciting actor combinations. Also, as long as he is able to find entertaining scripts,” a source is quoted as saying.
