Sajid Khan Confirms Houseful Sequel

After a success of Houseful, Sajid Khan confirmed the news of making its sequel. Sajid also mentioned that its Sequel would be ten times funnier than the first in the series, says the box office record inspired him to make the sequel.

The 39-year-old director is busy penning down the script of ‘Housefull 2’, whose shooting will start from mid 2011 and will be released in early 2012. The filmmaker says,

“Of the 148 films made this year, my film ‘Housefull’ stands out among the six hit films. It is the box office that tells you what should be done next. Almost 90 per cent of the audience liked my film…the success encouraged me to give another film on the same lines.”

“As the expectations are double I am working more hard on the screenplay. I assure it will be ten times superior then the initial version.”

This time Sajid also added John Abraham along with Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh for ‘Housefull 2’. Yet the director needs to finalize female lead actors.

About sequels, Sajid said,

“It is a healthy trend. Lot of Indian filmmakers are doing up sequels and it is proving beneficial. As there are bound be more expectations so has to put in more efforts to ensure the audience is not disappointed.”

“I make films for people and not myself. My funda is to make those films that people ‘want to see’ rather than the ones which people ‘need to see’.”
