Kriti Sanon recently revealed how the team of ‘Housefull 4’ came together to complete the film after Nana Patekar and director Sajid Khan were replaced due to sexual harassment allegations against them.
“It was weird to be on set with all that going on. Someone else directing us suddenly in the middle of the film. But I give it to producer Sajid Nadiadwala sir. He took certain decisions and handled it very well. We didn’t stop shooting for more than two days,” Sanon told PTI. Writer Farhad Samji replaced Khan as director, which was a smooth transition as he was already familiar with the team.
“We finished our schedule a day before we were supposed to finish. That way, we all just wanted to make the film in a good manner and make sure all of this doesn’t affect the final product. A film once made is out forever. We were together in it.”, she shared.
The required reshoots after Rana Daggubati replaced Patekar, along with the challenges of a big cast in an ensemble film like ‘Housefull 4’, did not stop the cast and crew, Sanon said, “We shot some major sequences including the interval and the climax after that. These sequences are usually crazy because the entire star cast is together. Our producer took the call of spending that extra money to reshoot scenes with no fault of his.”
‘Housefull 4’ is planning to release around Diwali, on 26th October.
