Abhishek Bachchan Rejoins the Laugh Riot in ‘Housefull 5’ with Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh


In a move that promises to bring additional star power and humor to an already successful comedy franchise, actor Abhishek Bachchan has confirmed his return to the ‘Housefull’ series with the latest installment, ‘Housefull 5’. The film, which fans have eagerly anticipated, will also feature the franchise’s staples Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh, marking a reunion of the comedic trio that has previously entertained audiences with their on-screen chemistry and timing.

Set to begin production in August, this newest addition to the ‘Housefull’ franchise will take the cast to the UK for filming. Helmed by director Tarun Mansukhani, responsible for the hit film ‘Dostana’ (2008), ‘Housefull 5’ promises to blend the franchise’s characteristic slapstick and situational comedy with fresh narrative twists. The production is under the watchful eye of established producer Sajid Nadiadwala, who has been a constant figure throughout the series, renowned for his ability to create blockbuster entertainers.

Abhishek Bachchan’s association with ‘Housefull’ dates back to the franchise’s third film, released in 2016. Addressing his return, the actor expressed genuine enthusiasm in a statement, equating his comeback to the franchise as a homecoming of sorts. Bachchan’s positive rapport with producer Nadiadwala is palpable in his words. He exclaimed, “Housefull is one of my favorite comedy franchises and coming back feels like returning home. It’s always been a great pleasure to work with Sajid Nadiadwala. I am looking forward to having mad fun on the sets with my fellow actors Akshay and Riteish.”

Bachchan also expressed his excitement about reteaming with Mansukhani, his director in the 2008 film ‘Dostana’, marking a hiatus of several years since they last collaborated. “This is going to be a lot of fun,” predicted Abhishek, hinting at the anticipated camaraderie and creativity that will transpire on the film set.

For Sajid Nadiadwala, bringing Abhishek back into the ‘Housefull’ fold is cause for celebration. His faith in the actor’s comedic prowess was evident when he shared, “I am thrilled to bring back Abhishek to the ‘Housefull’ franchise. His dedication, comic timing, and sincerity will only elevate our film.” Nadiadwala’s words underscore the producer-actor relationship that goes beyond mere professionalism, embodying mutual respect and recognition of talent.

The ‘Housefull’ series has become a staple in the landscape of Indian cinema, particularly in the realm of Hindi cinema comedies, steadily garnering a fan base eager for light-hearted escapism and laugh-out-loud moments. Each film brings together an ensemble cast, with the core actors remaining consistent, creating a familiar tableau for audiences to return to.

While details of the plot of ‘Housefull 5’ remain under wraps, the film’s announcement has already set the fan community abuzz with speculation and excitement. The promise of a reunion amongst Bachchan, Kumar, and Deshmukh, coupled with Nadiadwala’s ability to curate high-quality comedic cinema, hints at the potential for ‘Housefull 5’ to be a comedic juggernaut in a genre that often relies on sequels to recapture the magic of its predecessors.

‘Housefull 5’ is currently slated for a June 6, 2025, release, marking it as one of the significant future releases of Hindi cinema. As the countdown to its filming begins and the cast and crew prepare to bring their comedic A-game, the Indian film industry looks forward to another potential blockbuster capable of drawing audiences across demographics and delivering the gift of laughter, a much-needed respite in the current times.
