Sajid Khan has been in news for quite some time, and is all set to be back with the fourth installment of Housefull, which will star Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, and Bobby Deol.

Earlier, there was no sign of a female lead for the film and there were only speculations that Kriti Sanon will be romancing Akshay Kumar.

According to the latest buzz, Kriti Sanon has been finalised and will be romancing Akshay in the film. She made her debut with Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti and this will be her second film under his home production.

Housefull 4 marks a lot of firsts for Kriti, be it her debut in the genre of pure comedy or a maiden role in a franchise. While talking about the film, Kriti shares, “Joining the cast of Housefull 4 is like coming back home. My journey started with Sajid sir in Heropanti. Since then, he has always been there for me and has guided me. I can’t wait to work with him again and that too, in the super-successful Housefull franchise!”

She took this happy news to her Twitter handle and said, Housefull4 it is!! “Super excited to start this crazy ride back home with #SajidSir @WardaNadiawala and @NGEMovies !! Let the madness begin.”

In an interview, Akshay said, “It’s been a while since I have done a full-on comedy film. It’s a genre that I really enjoy working in. I am looking forward to that film. Housefull 4 is going to be like a three-month vacation. For me, it’s like a reunion of old friends.”

Shooting for Housefull 4 will begin in June this year and the film will be released in 2019.
