Did you know? Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Housefull 4’ sets cost Rs 20 crore!

Akshay Kumar, along with the entire cast of Housefull 4 — Kriti Sanon, Bobby Deol, Riteish Deshmukh, Pooja Hegde and Kriti Kharbanda — have already completed two schedules of the film, one each in London and Rajasthan. The team kicked off their third schedule in Mumbai a few days ago. And we hear the makers have spent a whopping amount to build the grand sets, where they will shoot the reincarnation scenes.

Says a source from the production, “Producer Sajid Nadiadwala is leaving no stone unturned to make Housefull 4 a visual delight. The two sets that have been erected at the Chitrakoot Ground and Vrindavan Studio in Mumbai have cost him around Rs 20 crore. The film’s overall budget is a sum total of the money that he spent on the other three movies in the franchise.”

Given that the period sequences, which involve a lot of VFX, are yet to be shot there, the art direction team has paid attention to the intricate details. “The set gives you a feel of the yesteryear era, which was seen in the Baahubali franchise. There’s the king’s darbar which has pillars that are as high as 36 feet, long pathways and marble flooring. There are precious stones embedded on the throne and the pillars have fine detailing,” our source tells us.
