We reported a few days ago how Jackie Shroff might replace Nana Patekar in the upcoming reincarnation comedy Housefull 4. Earlier, Sanjay Dutt and Anil Kapoor were being considered for the part. Now, there’s a twist in the tale, sources suggest that someone else might be Patekar’s replacement. If reports are to be believed, the Baahubali actor Rana Daggubati might be the choice to be his replacement in the film. Some earlier reports also suggested that Nana’s portions shot in Jaisalmer are integral and won’t be clipped.
Though there is no official statement by the makers, a report by a source of a daily was quoted saying, “Interestingly, the name of Rana came as a sudden choice. Rana’s name sounds like Nana, and then the makers decided to ask the south actor if he was keen on working in the film and whether he would have the dates for the same. While Rana seems to have agreed, the paperwork and other details are being worked out at the moment and an official announcement will come soon.”
Coming back to Housefull 4, the movie produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and will feature an ensemble cast of actors including Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Boman Irani, Chunkey Pandey, Bobby Deol, Pooja Hegde, Kriti Kharbanda and Kriti Sanon in lead roles. The movie is slated to hit the screens next year during Diwali.
