Filming begins for ‘Housefull 3’
Posted: 18 August 2015, Tuesday
Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala’s 2010 comedy drama Housefull was a super-duper hit, which was followed by another hit release of the franchise 2 years hence, Housefull 2 (2012).
And now, the makers are gearing up for yet another release of the franchise. Actors Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon have reportedly begun filming for Housefull 3, which is expected to release in summer next year.
While Akshay and Riteish have been part of both the earlier releases, Abhishek, Jacqueline, and Lisa are new additions. It’s believed that Riteish’s wife Genelia D'souza will also join the cast of Housefull 3.
Other actors who are part of the project are Jackie Shroff, Boman Irani, and Chunky Pandey, of whom Boman and Chunky will be reprising their roles of Batuk Patel and Aakhri Pasta respectively, from the previous two releases.
The news of filming having commenced was confirmed by Riteish by a post on the micro-blogging site Twitter: “And the Madness begins #HouseFull3”.
Co-star Akshay also tweeted, “While you enjoy my coordination in the #Brothers ring this weekend, here’s a #Blooper on my 1st shoot of #Housefull3”. The tweet came along with a blooper showing the action hero making failed attempts at jumping from a wooden barricade.
Housefull 3 is expected to be bigger and better than the previous two installments. While the first two releases were directed by Sajid Khan, the third release will be directed by the director duo Sajid-Farhad, who were part of Housefull 2 as writers. The music for the film will be composed by music director duo Sajid-Wajid.
The film is slated to hit the theatres on June 3, 2016.
