Asin’s ‘Housefull’ diaries
Actress Asin Thottumkal would have been a part of “Housefull”, but date issues kept her away. However, she is glad to associate with filmmaker Sajid Khan ultimately for “Housefull 2″.
A source informs that the actress was approached for the 2010 film “Housefull”, but she couldn’t accommodate it due to date issues.
Khan also wanted her to do the hit dance number “Dhanno” from the same movie but that too didn’t work out, and Jacqueline Fernandez was roped in for the same.
But when the “Housefull” team decided to make a sequel to the movie, Asin was roped in.
“Housefull 2″, produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, also features Jacqueline, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham.
