Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s last multi-starrer ‘Housefull 4’ (2019) has done wonders at the box office and with this, Nadiadwala has announced the fifth installment of the franchise. It is being said that the original ‘Housefull’ (2010) director Sajid Khan was keen to return to the film but Nadiadwala has refused and lead actor Akshay Kumar is also not interested in the same.
Deccan Chronicle reports a source saying, “Considering his close relations with Sajid Khan’s sister Farah Khan, Nadiadwala may have reconsidered the decision to sack Sajid Khan if Akshay Kumar, who plays the lead in the Housefull franchise and is Nadiadwala’s neighbour and buddy, allowed it. But Akshay won’t work with Sajid. Sajid Khan won’t return to direct Housefull 5.”
Khan was removed from directing ‘Housefull 4’ after numerous #MeToo allegations.
