Sajid Nadiadwala’s much awaited Housefull 5 had added two prominent new entrants to the cast: Anil Kapoor and Nana Patekar, bringing them together again after their iconic roles as Majnu Bhai and Uday Shetty in Firoz Nadiadwala’s Welcome film series.

PeepingMoon.com has exclusively learned that Anil Kapoor will not be a part of Housefull 5 anymore. He has reportedly walked out of the project after his dates couldn’t match the film’s planned production timeline. “After determining the availability of all the main actors, the makers decided to begin filming Housefull 5 in August. While this schedule worked for everyone else, it did not align with Anil’s dairy. He will be shooting for YRF’s female spy thriller with Alia Bhatt, Sharvari, and Bobby Deol during that period. Anil graciously left the film, hoping to work with Sajid Nadiadwala on another project soon,” a source close to the development told us.

Housefull 5 boasts a huge ensemble cast led by franchise regulars Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, and Chunky Panday. Abhishek Bachchan, who starred in Housefull 3, has also joined the cast, while Kriti Sanon has been roped in as one of the leading ladies.

Bobby Deol was also said to be in talks, but he is believed to have turned down the offer due to scheduling conflicts.

Dostana director Tarun Mansukhani helms the latest installment, which will once more include a new plot and characters unrelated to the preceding films. Its pre-production begins this month, with principal photography scheduled to commence in late August in the UK. Over 60 days of shooting have been planned for this comic-caper, set to release in theatres on June 6, 2025.
