More about Housefull 5

Last year, reports suggested that Housefull 5 is likely to arrive at the theatres this year. However, owing to some production work, the release date of the film was pushed to 2025. Further, Akshay Kumar, too, confirmed the release date and took to his social media accounts to announce the same. He assured his fans of ‘five times’ more entertainment than the previous editions of the franchise and said, “5 times the entertainment is on its way! See you in cinemas on 6th June 2025.”

In a press statement released last year, the creators of the Housefull franchise acknowledged that its popularity comes from its audience. They expressed confidence that Housefull 5 will be equally well-received. “The team has created an exceptional storyline that requires advanced visual effects. To ensure a high-quality cinematic experience, the release has been postponed delivering an enhanced entertainment value,” the statement said.
