Grapevine has it that actress Pooja Hegde, who debuted in Bollywood opposite Hrithik Roshan in the Ashutosh Gowariker directorial ‘Mohenjo Daro’ (2016), is all set to star in her second Hindi film project. According to reports, the gorgeous actress has been signed to portray one of the female leads in the upcoming comic-caper ‘Housefull 4’, which happens to be the next instalment of the Sajid Nadiadwala produced ‘Housefull’ (2010).
The project, which was announced in October last year, already stars Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh and Kriti Sanon in principal roles. The makers are now looking at locking the rest of the cast so that the project could mount the shooting floor. Besides Pooja, the name of actress Huma Qureshi has also cropped up for one of the female leads. However, no official confirmation has been made by the makers as yet.
To be bankrolled by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment along with Fox Star Studios, Housefull 4 will be helmed by Sajid Khan who called the shots for ‘Housefull’ (2010) and ‘Housefull 2’ (2012). Based on the theme of reincarnation, ‘Housefull 4’ is going to be shot on a lavish scale. Reportedly, the makers have allocated a massive budget of around Rs. 200 crores for the making of the film.
‘Housefull 4’ hits the silver screen on Diwali next year.
