If Huma is confirmed, she will be the second lead actress to come onboard.

‘Housefull 4’ is one of the highly anticipated films of the recent times. While the previous three instalments of the franchise were set in modern times, the fourth part will have a fantasy set up as well. While one part of the film is said to be based in a fantasy world, the second part will set in modern times. Buzz has it that the makers have allocated around Rs. 200 crores for the making of the film.
Slated to go on floors in next few months, ‘Housefull 4’ is scheduled to release on Diwali next year.
