The audience has been loving the fourth part of the ‘Golmaal’ franchise ‘Golmaal Again’ and soon, they will also get to enjoy the fourth part of the ‘Housefull’ franchise as well.
The makers of ‘Housefull’ have announced that the series will have its fourth film and they plan to release it on Diwali 2019. The film will be directed by Sajid Khan who earlier directed the first two parts of the franchise. The fourth film of the series will revolve around the theme of reincarnation. So far, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh have appeared in all the ‘Housefull’ films, and the Akshay led gang is making its comeback, with some new additions to the cast this time.
The first film of the franchise released in 2010 and was a success at the box-office. The next film, ‘Housefull 2’, featured actors like Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kappor in the cast and was a huge commercial success. Along with Akshay and Riteish, the third film of the franchise also starred Abhishek Bachchan and was directed by the duo Sajid-Farhad.
This year’s Diwali saw the coming back of the ‘Golmaal’ franchise as a horror-comedy and with ‘Housefull’ having another film on Diwali 2019, this could turn out to be a promising venture for the makers. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala confirmed, “Housefull is franchise of fun and 4th will be the biggest Housefull that we have made till now. I am happy to be back with Sajid Khan who directed the first two parts of the film. We have a funny thematic twist in the fourth part as the plot is that of reincarnation. We have big production plans for the movie and that’s why we think that we would need all this time to make it the event film of 2019.”
So far, no other film has been announced for release on Diwali 2019.
