Housefull 5 pushed to 2024 due to casting issues
Housefull 5 will be the biggest film in the franchise, as it will feature all the characters from the previous films in a crossover.
“Sajid Nadiadwala was planning to take Housefull 5 on floors by December 2023, however, the plans were pushed to 2024 when the casting was taking longer than expected. Just last week, Sajid and Akshay approached Abhishek and John to sign them for the film,” revealed a source close to the development to Bollywood Hungama.
Both Abhishek and John had to say no based-on date issues. “While they were more than willing to come on board for Housefull 5, they were not able to allot bulk dates for Housefull 5,” the source added.
