Sajad Nadiadwala Replaces Sajid Khan As Housefull 4 Director
A source informs Mid-day, "The film is scheduled to release during Diwali next year. But since the film is heavy on VFX, it is imperative that the shoot will be wrapped up by January, leaving the team enough time for post-production work. Also, being a multi-starrer project, it will be difficult to get bulk dates from the actors later, should they decide on postponing the film. The team has decided to meet in the coming week and discuss if Nadiadwala can take over the project. He is the best man for the job as he has been a part of the franchise since its inception,"
Not only this, according to a report in Times Of India, Nana Patekar’s has also stepped out from Housefull 4, after Tanushree Dutta accused him of sexual misconduct.
