Akshay Kumar is back with the successful Housefull franchise. And the third installment will feature not one, but two versions of Chunky Pandey's popular comic character, Aakhri Pasta, a role that won over audiences in the last two installments.
Speaking at the recent Times of India Film Awards 2016, he said:
"I am there in Housefull 3. I am Aakhri Pasta and I have got a double role. My second role is named as Aakhri Aastha."
"He is the owner of the Aastha channel and becomes an astrologer and goes absolutely crazy."
Housefull 3 is directed by Sajid-Farhad Samji, a writer duo who made their directorial debut with Entertainment in 2014.
The film also stars Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh among others.
