The shooting for Housefull 4 has been resumed with director Farhad Samji replacing Sajid Khan.

Housefull 4 is plotted in two lives with all the characters sporting two different ‘then-and-now’ looks. Akshay’s bald look is for the medieval portion of the film.

After Sajid Khan was sacked from the director of Housefull 4, the shooting has resumed with director Farhad Samji who directed the last franchise of the film.

Apparently, Sajid Nadiadwala – producer of the film- is a very close friend of Akshay Kumar and has agreed to do whatever Kumar tells him.

“It was Akshay’s idea to immediately sack Sajid and employ Farhad Samji. Farhad and his brother Sajid Samji had earlier directed Housefull 3 for Nadiadwala. So Akshay felt Farhad would fit in fabulously. The shooting has been renewed with Farhad handling the scenes with the costumes, chariots, and elephants,” says the source.

Sajid, accused in multiple sexual harassment cases, directed nearly 60 per cent of the film before he was sacked. “The portions that remain are set in the medieval era. It’s a Baahubali kind of location that requires huge sets, massive special effects. The whole cast will be wearing heavy costumes. Akshay’s costume alone is worth nearly 5 crores. Nadiadwala wants to make Housefull 4 a more lavish costume drama than any in this country. But the allegations of sexual harassment against Sajid Khan and Nana Patekar have damaged the film’s spirit and credibility,” says source from the film’s team.
