Describing his upcoming film as “a fun film with an element of reincarnation”, Akshay says it is a continuation of the earlier Housefull films. “Whenever I need a holiday, I do a film called Housefull,” he says, adding, “I just wanted to relax and enjoy myself. This is a film which you can watch with your family and chill out.” So is it a coincidence that all the three female leads of Housefull 4 have worked in the South before? “I too have worked with a lot of South Indian directors and learnt a lot from them. Whether it’s Priyan Sir, Shankar Sir or Murugadoss, I have learnt to be professional and punctual from them. So if the actresses have worked in the South, they are already very professional and it becomes easy for me to work with them,” explains the actor, who confesses that he has never really explored Hyderabad as a city.
“I usually drive straight to RFC for the shooting of my films. Jaanwar is the only Hindi film which I shot near Charminar, otherwise I have never shot in the city,” shares the actor who admits that he likes biryani. Revealing a funny incident, Akshay says, “The organisers called a few people to come to this event with their heads shaved. However, at the last minute, they cancelled their plans. Meanwhile, several people actually showed up with bald heads and announced that they had ‘come to shoot for the film!
