Earlier, it was reported that the film will revolve around the theme of reincarnation and fresh reports now claim that Akshay will be seen as a bald king from the 16th century, in his past life, in the film. Interestingly, a photo showing Akshay as a bald man in a king’s clothes went viral last year.Housefull 4 is directed by Farhan Shamji and also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Pooja Hegde, Rana Daggubati, Chunky Pandey, Boman Irani, Sharad Kelkar, Johnny Lever and Jamie Lever.A source close to the development told a leading daily, “The fourth instalment offers a hilarious spin on reincarnation. In the first half that is set in the 16th century, Akshay sports a different look as the king. In fact, the picture of one of his looks, where he is flaunting a bald pate, went viral last year. Bobby, on the other hand, will be seen sporting long hair in this portion. Since Chunkey Pandey’s character Aakhri Pasta has been established as half-Italian in the previous editions, the makers were struggling to incorporate him in the 16th century.”It is also reported that Chunkey will play Vasco Da Gama’s nephew in his past life in the film.Portions of the film relating to the past life of the characters are reportedly shot in Rajasthan, while the current-day portions have been shot in London.Sajid Khan, who has directed all three films in the franchise, was initially named the director of this instalment too, but was replaced by Farhad Samji after allegations of sexual harassment against him surfaced last year. Nana Patekar was replaced by Rana Daggubati following similar allegations.advertisementMeanwhile, Akshay Kumar is riding high on the success of his recently released film Kesari.
