Housefull 3 releases amidst controversy, FIR filed against Akshay & Sajid

Sajid-Farhad’s much-awaited multi-starrer Housefull 3, which hits the screens today, has already been shrouded in controversy.

The comedy, we hear, has been accused of plagiarism. Reportedly, writer Farooq Barelvi has filed an FIR against Akshay Kumar and producer Sajid Nadiadwala, accusing the two of using his story without giving him the credit.

According to Farooq, he had first narrated the story to Akshay’s make-up artiste Narendra Khuswala, who took the film to the actor. Farooq says that Akki loved the story and decided to act in it. Farooq further claims that he was even paid a hefty token amount by Akshay’s team for the story.

But soon after, Farooq alleges, Khiladi Kumar started giving him a cold shoulder and his story was used for the third instalment of the popular Bollywood franchise, Housefull.
