Two films and over Rs. 300 crore worth of business. With that kind of box-office record, it’s hardly surprising that that the comedy franchise, Housefull, is to get a third part.
What is surprising, however, is that producer Sajid Nadiadwala is willing to change a winning combination: he confirms that Sajid Khan, who directed the first two parts, will not helm part three.
“I had a three-film deal with Sajid Khan when I got him to direct Heyy Babyy (2007). And with Housefull (2010) and Housefull 2 (2012), the deal is over. Henceforth, the franchise, which is going to be announced every two years, will have a new director every time,” explains Nadiadwala.
According to industry sources, however, other factors may have contributed to Nadiadwala’s decision. Khan will apparently be busy from September with two back-to-back films, one each with UTV and Vashu
