Mumbai, Jan. 17 -- Sajid Khan has lined up 22 actors in the eagerly awaited sequel of Housefull. And three of them-Mithun Chakraborty, Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor--are his childhood idols, whose movies the director has grown up on.

"I couldn't disappoint the audience," he reasons. "And what's more, I also have Dabooji (Randhir Kapoor) and Boman Irani joining them on stage."
