Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal is flying in the seventh sky these days after the success of his multi-starrer film Rajneeti and doing the lead role in We Are family with Kareena Kapoor and Kajol. The actor has turned very pricey these days thus losing the roles in the sequels of his movies.
Earlier, Arjun lost his role in the sequel of Don to Kunal Kapoor and now he has been replaced by Rahul Khanna in the sequel of Housefull. Rampal had reportedly quoted a huge amount of Rs 2.5 crore to producer Sajid Nadiadwala.
Hosuefull 2 will have new faces like John Abraham, Paresh Rawal and Nana Patekar. Director Sajid Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala found Arjun’s demand too high, so they finally replaced him. Both of them agreed to cast Rahul Khanna, who has been known mainly for his off-beat roles.
A source has been quoted saying that Hosuefull 2 will also have new female faces like Genelia D’souza and Sonakshi Sinha. However, Lara Dutta will continue to be one of the leading ladies.
It will be interesting to see if the new cast can create the same magic as done by Akshay Kumar and Ritesh Deshmukh.
