The story of 'Housefull 4' is based on reincarnation, spanning a period of 600 years from 1419 to 2019, and ever since the film's trailer was released, many people have pointed out similarities between Akshay Kumar's character and Ranveer Singh's look in "Bajirao Masatani". Both characters are bald, have a period connect, and also have similar get-ups and costumes.
Akshay said, "If that's the case, then are you trying to tell me that all bald characters will have some sort of similarity with Ranveer's look in 'Bajirao Mastani'? We are not trying to ape anybody in our film. In the film, my character has a lot of hair when he was born, so his father names him Rajkumar Bala. However, two years later, after his shahi mundan (ceremony where a child's hair is shaved off and offered to the Gods), hair never grows on his head and he becomes bald. So, he gets very angry with the people who have hair on their head and beats them up or scratches their hair."
Keeping aside the comparison between Bala's look and Bajirao Mastani, we surely think that Akshay Kumar has impressed us with his bang-on comic timing. So, do you think, Housefull 4 will surpass the business of Mission Mangal to become Akshay's highest grosser? Tweet us @bollywood_life
