Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Housefull 5’ to kick off shoot in January 2024

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, in June this year, announced the fifth installment of his hit comedy franchise Housefull. The film is helmed by Tarun Mansukhani and is scheduled to hit the theatres in 2024. While it is reported to be made on a massive budget, the casting for the same is underway. Meanwhile, the makers plan to take the film on floors in January 2024. “i Housefull is a franchise close to both Akshay and Sajid. They both have cracked a subject that doesn’t just do justice to the world of this mad cap comedy, but also raises the stakes. The core plot is locked and the pre-production is in progress to take the film on floors with the first schedule from January 15,” revealed a source. A source had informed that Sajid Nadiadwala and Akshay had approached Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham to sign the film. However, both Abhishek and John had to say no. "While they were more than willing to come on board, they were not able to allot dates for Housefull 5."
