Sajid Khan IN, Jacqueline Fernandez OUT of ‘Housefull 4’?
It was just yesterday when there was a big announcement done by the makers of popular comedy franchise ‘Housefull’. After making three successful instalments, the team is all set to arrive with the fourth part titled ‘Housefull 4’ to tickle your funny bone. Though the cast of this fourth instalment will be announced soon, a trade source to Mid-day said, “Both John and Sanjay Dutt have agreed in principle. Sanjay will be playing a pivotal role; his character will be shown as strong and intense. Abhishek Bachchan, who was present in ‘Housefull 3’, won’t be part of this one.” [sic]. Now when we recall about the recurring cast members in the ‘Housefull’ franchise, there’s no doubt that without actors like Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Chunky Panday as Aakhri Pasta, you just can’t imagine the film. And certainly, who can forget actress Jacqueline Fernandez, who is the only actress to feature in all three parts (the first one featured her in the track ‘Aapka Kya Hoga (Dhanno)’).
But, reportedly there are these latest speculations that the actress will not be starring in the fourth part of this franchise and the apparent reason behind her ouster is none other than her rumoured ex-boyfriend and filmmaker Sajid Khan. For the ones who aren’t aware, Sajid Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez were reportedly once dating and their relationship had started on the sets of ‘Housefull 2’. But, according to the reports both parted ways by mid-2013. Two months after the debacle of Sajid’s directorial project ‘Himmatwala’.

In fact, back when he was promoting ‘Humshakals’, Sajid had also said in an interview to Times of India that, “While we broke up in May 2013, in reality right from December 2012, it started becoming sour. So you are already preparing your mind in those five months. Also, when you don’t have a woman in your life, you don’t have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a Holiday with her for five days in the middle of making ‘Himmatwala’ and felt so bad when the film didn’t do well. For ‘Humshakals’, I have not taken a single holiday.” [sic]
After their breakup, perhaps both of them never forgot the not so good memories between them. We are guessing this might be the reason that Jacqueline will no longer be a part of this fourth instalment. As ‘Housefull 3’ was not helmed by Sajid Khan, Jacqueline very well remained a part of the franchise. But, as now the original creator of the series returns to the director’s chair, these reports have been around the buzz.
Well, we could only speculate until the official cast of ‘Housefull 4’ is announced.
So, till then let’s wait for more updates.
