Nana Patekar reportedly opted out of the sequel to Sajid Khan’s Housefull as he wants to direct the film in which his son Malhar makes his screen debut. He is said to have convinced producer Sajid Nadiadwala that he will not be available for Housefull 2.
Boman Irani has replaced Nana Patekar in the film. The other main roles are played by Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Riteish Deshmukh, Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Asin and Jaqueline Fernandez.
Earlier, Nana Patekar directed the film Prahaar: The Final Attack. He is said to have decided to direct his son’s debut film as it has a novel theme and not a run of the mill song and dance commercial film. This untitled film will go on floors soon
