Housefull 4 is dealing with a reincarnation story and is being spear-headed by Akshay Kumar. Now, the latest update on the film’s storyline has that Akshay will be seen playing the character of a famous king from the 16th century in India’s Rajasthan. The film is divided into two parts – the past and the present life of its characters. As reported by a leading daily now, Akshay’s past life character will have him flaunting different looks, one of which includes carrying a bald head and long curled moustache.

Mid-Day reported that both Riteish Deshmukh and Bobby Deol will be seen as the royal courtiers in the kingdom of the Maharaja. The three female actors – Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde will be decked up as princesses in their past life roles. The daily quoted a source close to the development revealing that the makers of Housefull 4 were having difficulty in giving shape to Chunky Pandey‘s character in the past story since he has played Aakhri Pasta, a half-Italian character in all the three parts. However, after much contemplation, it was decided that Chunky will be seen playing the character of Vasco Da Gama’s nephew in his past life.

What is also exciting is that this portion of the film is going to see some grand constructed sets as the Maharaja’s palace and everything in a larger-than-life appeal. The source added that producer Sajid Nadiadwala has allotted a huge budget to the film’s VFX team ‘ to create a royal city that is reminiscent of the architectural style prevalent 500 years ago.’ The report added that director Farhad Samji is working hard with Nadiadwala over VFX to ensure that Housefull 4 releases on time during Diwali this year.

The film’s second part which deals with the present life of the characters has been shot in London. Housefull 4 is the fourth film in the popular comedy franchise.
