Sajid Nadiadwala has spilled a few details about Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Housefull 5. The filmmaker has revealed the budget of the movie and all we can say is that it is both Sajid as well as Akshay’s most expensive film till date. The film’s budget is close to Pathaan’s lifetime Box Office. The highest grossing Bollywood film featuring Shah Rukh Khan had minted over Rs. 500 crores.

So, what is Housefull 5’s budget?

Housefull 5 is made on a massive budget of USD 48 million i.e. Rs. 375 crores. That is almost Rs. 100 crores less than the highest grossing Bollywood movie. Sajid revealed so during his interview with Variety. He is currently investing Rs. 10 billion in UK-based projects featuring Bollywood A-listers. This includes Housefull 5, Chandu Champion (Kabir Khan directorial featuring Kartik Aaryan) and Tiger Shroff’s Baaghi 4.

Akshay Kumar finds his first hit in a long time in OMG 2

Akshay Kumar had been delivering back-to-back flops at the Box Office since 2020. The actor’s recent release OMG 2 is among his first hits ever since. Despite that, he has a massive amount riding on him.

Details about Housefull 5

Housefull 5 stars Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh in the lead roles. It will be helmed by Tarun Mansukhani of Dostana fame. The high budget could be because Housefull franchise is a huge success and the four films together earned USD 118 million. The movie will release in Diwali 2024.

The other projects

Chandu Champion recently wrapped up its month long schedule in UK. Meanwhile, Baaghi 4 is at the scripting stage. “We’ve built strong relationships with the U.K. and Saudi Arabia, making these places feel like a second home for our movie shoots. Our commitment to entertain our viewers remains strong, and our upcoming movies promise to make the audience laugh with Housefull 5, inspire with Chandu Champion and captivate with Baaghi 4,” Sajid said in his interview.
