Nana Patekar was a part of Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 and everything fell like a house of cards, when Tanushree Dutta accused him of sexual harassment, which happened on the sets of Horn OK Please in 2008. There was intense pressure on the film-makers to sack him from the movie and guess what, they did sack him from Housefull 4; and Nana Patekar will now be replaced by South icon, who starred in the Baahubali series, Rana Daggubati.
Here's What Rana Daggubati Had To Say About Being A Part Of Housefull 4
"It is always good to find work outside of Hyderabad, get to learn so much and do so many new things. I've never been part of a genre like Housefull and it's always exciting to work with different genres. Working with Akshay Kumar again, Sajid (Nadiadwala) and Farhad (Samji) is something I am really looking forward to," he said to Mumbai Mirror.
Rana Daggubati Will Play The Role Of A Ghazal Singer
It is reported that Rana Daggubati will play the role of a ghazal singer in Housefull 4 and his character will have a lot of comedy elements. We'll have to wait and see how Rana Daggubati will pull off the role, as comedy is a serious genre. But, of course, as an actor with high caliber, we're sure that he'll pull it off with utmost ease.
