Riteish Deshmukh to star in Housefull 3 alongside Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan

Yes, the trio will come together for the third installment of Housefull franchise to be directed by Sajid-Farhad

Riteish Deshmukh was part of Housefull and Housefull 2, both directed by his buddy Sajid Khan. The director on Housefull 3 has changed but Riteish Deshmukh will now be working with the new directors Sajid-Farhad. Strangely, while the names of Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan coming together were announced with grand fanfare, Riteish’s name for now, is being kept under wraps. Probably because everyone is worried about Khan’s reaction to that bit of news.

Says an insider, “When Sajid and Farhad narrated the script of H3 to Riteish, he said yes immediately. It’s a hilarious script written by the director duo. Also, he is looking forward to working again with Abhishek, with whom he did Bluffmaster. Besides, he shares a good working relationship with producer Sajid Nadiadwala, so there was no reason for him to turn down this offer.”

Initially the producer as well as the directors were unsure about approaching Riteish because of his friendship with Khan, with whom he is working on Humshakals as well. They share a great personal and professional rapport. But the actor doesn’t allow personal stuff to get in the way of work. A industry source says, “He had a word with Khan before he signed on H3 and told him he was doing the film. Sajid too was happy for him and gave his good wishes. Riteish has been a very dear friend of his and both are very clear about one thing – they won’t allow work to get in the way of, and ruin, their close friendship.” So why haven’t we heard the announcement yet?
