Recently, Akshay Kumar, who has been a constant in the entire Housefull franchise, shared a picture on social media, which featured old and new cast members of the franchise and hinted at the fifth instalment of the Housefull franchise. “Last night was Housefull of fun with friends from Housefull 1, 2, 3 and 4. Gearing up for 5? I don’t know,” wrote Akshay Kumar.

Now, a source told a popular tabloid that producer Sajid Nadiadwala wants to expand the series. He wants to bring home some old faces, including actress Deepika Padukone, who played the female lead opposite Akshay in the first part of the franchise.

“The basic premise of all the Housefull films results from confusion between three couples. For part five, Sajid wants to throw five couples into the mix to amp up the fun by five times,” the source said.

“Since the film demands a huge ensemble, it is essential to get coordinated bulk dates from all the actors. There will be clarity on the shoot schedule and the release date only when the script is locked,” the source concluded.
