Buzz has it that actor Bobby Deol might join the star cast of the forthcoming comedy film, Housefull 4. The actor was last seen in the comic caper, Poster Boys, which also starred his elder brother Sunny Deol.

To be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Housefull 4 is the latest instalment of his immensely successful film franchise, Housefull. Director Sajid Khan, who called the shots for Housefull and Housefull 2, is back to helm the fourth instalment of the series.

Sources say that Nadiadwala and Khan both are keen to have Bobby onboard as they believe his comic timing is great and he suits the role perfectly. “Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan are close to Bobby and they felt he would fit the role. Talks are still on. They are yet to sign the actor but mostly, he will give the nod to this film,” reveals a well-placed source.

Besides Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh, who have appeared in all previous parts of the franchise, no other actor has been finalized for the multi-starrer film as yet. However, some reports claim that Abhishek Bachchan, who was there in Housefull 3, has also signed the film.

The comic caper, which is based on the theme of reincarnation and will also have a portion with a period setting, is being made on a huge budget of Rs. 200 crores.

The film is expected to begin rolling in June. It is slated to release on Diwali 2019.
