MUMBAI: Moving ahead of Judwaa 2 has proven to be beneficial in ways more than one for both Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan. Since earlier Sajid Khan was supposed to be in charge of both the films, they were meant to be spaced out. However, with a new director coming on board for Judwaa 2, Sajid Khan would be beginning work on Housefull 3, hence releasing it in April 2014.

"This also means that the trend of one Housefull flick releasing every two years in the month of April would be maintained", says our well placed source, "If Sajid Khan would have started work on Judwaa, he would have been forced to delay Housefull 3 even further. He is anyways working on Himmatwala currently and plans to release it next year. After that, if he would have done Judwaa 2, the wait would have prolonged for Housefull 3. However, now after Himmatwala, he can solely concentrate on Housefull 3."

Since Housefull is the flagship franchise of Nadiadwala, he too is in a happy state since the next instalment would now release much earlier.

"Yet again, the film would clash with IPL though", adds a trade source, "In a way IPL is beneficial instead of being jinxed for the Housefull series. This has been proven in the first two films in the franchise and now yet again both Sajids want to take IPL heads-on."

With the film definitely on the cards, the myth around all not well between them has also been dispelled.

"They can‘t be expected to work with each other in practically every film. If Sajid Khan is currently doing Himmatwala, Sajid Nadiadwala too has directors like Imtiaz Ali and Kabir Khan lined up", says a common friend, "Both of them have maintained that they are friends first. They will keep making movies together but only if they both are passionate about the subject."

Akshay Kumar is the only superstar who has one release in every three month or so. This year he already made his mark with two 100 cr blockbusters "Housefull 2" and "Rowdy Rathore". He will have two more major release in August and October in "Joker‘ and "Oh My God!".

Akshay Kumar has also some interesting releases lined up for next year and one of his most awaited film where he will be seen in rather different type of character is "Special Chabbis". This film is being directed by Neeraj Pandey who directed the commercially successful and critically acclaimed "A Wesnesday". The film is based on a real life heist and also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Anupam Kher and Kaajal Aggrawal.

But the big news is that the makers have locked the release date of the film. Viacom 18 and Wide Frame will be releasing the film on 8th Februray 2013. This means Akshay planning to start 2013 with the bang!
