As if ‘Housefull 2’ wasn’t already studded with stars, the production house has now gone ahead and roped in none other than two of the most celebrated cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina.
"Housefull 2 would be the first release after IPL 2012 and arrives on 27th April. Keeping this in mind, Sajid Khan has included cricket elements in the film's script so that it turns out to be just the right follow up to the cricket season. With this latest development, audience will get a chance to see superstars from Bollywood as well as the cricket world sharing the same space”, said a source close to the production house.
The roles of the cricketers are yet to be decided. Will they have any a dialogue speaking role or would be just playing cricket is yet to be confirmed.
"Dhoni and Raina are key members of the Indian squad and have a busy schedule ahead. However, Sajid Nadiadwala's prior relationship with Indian cricket team is turning out to be handy here. He has already had preliminary discussions and it is just a matter of the cricketers shooting for the film. They are movie buffs themselves and want Housefull 2 to be movie they wish to watch immediately after an exhaustive IPL season”, added the source.
Just like in the movie ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ where the cricketers Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Siddhu, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan, Srinath and Parthiv Patel played a crucial role in the climax, Dhoni and Raina would be important in movie ‘Housefull 2’.
