Rana also confirmed the news and said, “It is always good to find work outside of Hyderabad, get to learn so much and do so many new things. I’ve never been part of a genre like Housefull and it’s always exciting to work with different genres. Working with Akshay Kumar again (after Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 action-spy thriller Baby), Sajid (Nadiadwala) and Farhad (Samji) is something I am really looking forward to.”
Well, not only Nana, Sajid Khan too stepped down from the film as a director. Sajid has been accused by a few women of sexual misconduct in the ongoing #MeToo movement.
The film will also stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde.
Directed by Farhad Samji, the film is expected to hit the screens next year.
