Budget of Akshay Kumar’s Housefull

The budget of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film “Housefull” has been revealed by producer Sajid Nadiadwala.

Talking about the film and its budget, he says “My last release Kambakth Ishq was expensive but that was because it had so many foreign actors. I have been making films for 25 years now and I am not mad to invest in something from where recovery becomes an issue. Let me state the budget of the film on record here. Housefull is just a 40-45 crores film. It was never an expensive film to begin wit”

On the exorbitant fees that Akshay charges for his films, Sajid says “Akshay’s fees didn’t have to come down for Housefull due to any reason whatsoever. His fees has never been so exorbitant; it has always been only in papers”

With good content, Housefull should be Akshay’s first HIT in more than an year.

    Phoonk 2 makers challenge audiences to watch the film alone
    By Bollywood Hungama News Network, Feb 23, 2010 -- 15:52 IST

    Last time, a challenge was laid out by the makes of Phoonk, that if any viewer could dare to see the film sitting all alone in a theatre and not run out scared he will get a cash prize of Rs.5 Lakhs.

    The contestant who took the challenge didn’t even last for 30mins and ran out of the theatre. However, after the release, some people alleged that the contest was rigged and that they never felt fear while watching the film. So now, without going into a pointless argument on the same, the Phoonk 2 team has decided to open themselves to a scientific evaluation of that claim.

    For Phoonk 2 , an ingenious implementation will be used on the Contest, which in a very scientific way will measure the heart rate of the viewer. The participant will be fitted with an ECG machine while he is watching Phoonk 2 which will monitor his/her Heartbeat and Pulse rate and this will be shown live on a screen outside the theatre to both the Media and all concerned.

    A normal person, according to professionals, has a certain average heartbeat and when subjected to any kind of an intense emotion, the beats will considerably go up. So if the challenger claims that he had no fear while watching Phoonk 2, the monitor will tell whether he is lying or not and on the other hand if he can control his fear and thereby his heartbeat, and not let it cross his normal heartbeat then he will get to win the cash prize.

    The Phoonk 2 contest will be launched on 10th March on the official website http://www.phoonk2.in. This contest is restricted to only healthy people with no history of Cardiac disease and also only to people who are between 18 and 60 years of age.

  • If the movie is good it will be Super hit, but if it is bad it will have a good weekend but after that it will be dead. Akshay does bad movies, but i hope Sajid Khan can bring a fun movie here.

  • Nice of Sajid Nadiadwala to reaffirm Akki’s fees. Bad publicity / reports can cause huge damage especially if untrue!

    I hope for Akki’s sake this movie works -- the guy really tries and no doubt has immense potential -- just needs to be more selective of his scripts I would think.
