Amidst speculations of whether Nana Patekar will be replaced in the Sajid Nadiadwala film or not, Baahubali star Rana Daggubati is being considered as a possible alternative.
While director Sajid Khan has been replaced by Farhad Samji, the director of the third film of the Housefull franchise, there was uncertainty regarding Nana’s role following Tanushree Dutta’s allegations against the actor.
“Interestingly, the name of Rana came as a sudden choice. Rana’s name sounds like Nana, and then the makers decided to ask the south actor if he was keen on working in the film and whether he would have the dates for the same. While Rana seems to have agreed, the paperwork and other details are being worked out at the moment and an official announcement will come soon,” says an industry source.
Rana is expected to join the team of Housefull 4 in the coming week.
