If someone asks you to name one of the most successful comic capers in Bollywood, the first name that crosses your mind is the Housefull series. The franchise has seen three super successful parts so far and the work for the next instalment, Housefull 4, is underway.

The latest news regarding the project is that producer Sajid Nadiadwala has signed writer Farhad Samji to write the fourth instalment of the franchise. Interestingly, Farhad directed Housefull 3 with his brother Sajid Samji.

“Farhad needed a little bit of persuasion. He directed Housefull 3 with his brother Sajid Samji. They wrote the dialogues for it and Housefull 2,” says a report.

“After their split, Farhad, who will now work independently, has been signed by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment as a writer-director for two projects. However, in the case of Housefull 4, he will only pen the screenplay and dialogues,” the reports adds.

According to reports, Sajid Nadiadwala is planning to make Housefull 4 on a lavish scale. While no announcement has been made about the cast of the film, Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh are expected to be retained in Housefull 4.

To be directed by Sajid Khan, the film is slated to release on Diwali 2019.
