‘Housefull 2’ will see fresh pairs on screen

MUMBAI: Director Sajid Khan is all set to shoot part two of his successful comedy “Housefull” and says he will not only present fresh pairings on screen, but also bring together the Kapoor brothers – Randhir and Rishi – on screen.

“I’ve paired Asin (Thottumkal) for the first time with Akshay, John Abraham for the first time with Jacqueline Fernandez. We’re looking for a leading lady for Riteish Deshmukh,” he added the director who will also shoot “Housefull 2” in Chile, Argentina, Britain, Phuket and Hongkong.

Sajid is also excited about bringing the two brothers Randhir and Rishi Kapoor together in “Housefull 2”.

“I’m their huge fan. I had so much fun working with Dabooji in ‘Housefull’. And Chintuji is arguably the most natural entertainer we’ve ever had in our films. And guess what? I’m naming them ‘Daboo’ and ‘Chintu’ in the film,” said Sajid.

Sajid is in principal against sequels.

“I dropped plans of doing a sequel to my ‘Heyy Babyy’. But ‘Housefull’ is a franchise. My producer Sajid Nadiadwala and I want to carry it forward. We’ve retained the name and the basic premise of a house crammed full with character, chaos and comedy. Everything else is completely different from the first ‘Housefull’.”
