There are a record-breaking 6 trailers already attached to the film with chances of at least 2 more being finalized in the next 24 hours.
Apparently, the wannabe-attached trailer-queue has been progressively reaching an epidemic proportion. Nadiadwala is at a loss as to how to stop the flow.
“Main kisko na bolun (whom could I say no to?). They’re all friends asking to be a part of Housefull 2. I’d love to have all the trailers. But if we allow them all there will be more trailer-time than feature film,” laments Nadidawala.
For now Nadiadwala has green lighted 6 trailersâ€¦Prabhu Deva’s Rowdy Rathore, Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahani, Ekta Kapoor’s Kya Super Kool Hain Hum, Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor, Supavitra Babul’s Bittoo Boss and Priyadarshan’s Tezz.
The request for two of these trailers to be attached came from Nadiadwala’s leading men. Apparently, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham’s requested Nadidawala to let Rowdy Rathore and Vicky Donor be attached.
And that isn’t the end of the story. There are at least five more producers-directors insisting to let their trailers be attached to Housefull 2. Nadiadwala would take a call on their fate in a day’s time.
The problem is Housefull 2 is already a lengthy 2 hour 30 minute film. 6-8 trailers would bring the complete playing-time to nearly 2 hours 45 minutes.
“I’ve never felt more helpless. Every producer who wants his trailer with Housefull 2 is a friend. It’s truly a compliment to our film. Never before has any film been swamped with so many requests for trailers to be attached. I’m touched and flattered. But as the number of trailers grows, I feel the trailers are not attached to Housefull 2. It’s the other way around. Housefull 2 is attached to the trailers,” quips Nadiadwala.
