After several aborted attempts to bring them together director Sajid Khan has finally managed to get Asin to star with Akshay Kumar in Housefull 2.
Deepika Padukone, who played Akshay's romantic lead in Housefull will not be part of the sequel. It must be mentioned that Deepika opted out of another project, Heer Aur Ranjha, which is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, who worked on Housefull as well.
Her dates were apparently becoming an issue as far as this film is concerned. Heer Aur Ranjha has thus been pushed to year-end and now the makers are looking for a replacement for Deepika.
