Singapore: Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar will lead the star-cast at the premiere of ‘Housefull 2 - The Dirty Dozen’ at the Sentosa island here next month.

The actor will be here on April 3 with the rest of the film`s stars including Riteish Deshmukh, John Abraham, Mithun Chakraborty and Asin.

"The movie will make its world premiere at the resort`s Festive Grand Theatre, with a star-studded red carpet event and gala," said a statement from Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), a casino-based holiday hub on the island.

Following the success of ‘Housefull’, director Sajid Khan returns with a sequel with a completely new storyline, new characters and a glamorous star cast.

Other stars from the film, like Shreyas Talpade, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan, Shazahn Padamsee, Rishi Kapoor, Boman Irani and Randhir Kapoor would be at the
premiere of the Bollywood romantic comedy.

‘Housefull 2’ tells the story of four fathers, four daughters and four prospective son-in-laws, the dirty dozen as the film`s title suggests. Each father wants his daughter to marry the richest son-in-law, while each daughter thinks she is marrying the richest son-in-law.

Meanwhile, each son-in-law is pretending to be the richest son-in-law. Each character is unscrupulous in their attempt to achieve their goals, making for an extremely entertaining and colourful comedy.

The world premiere of ‘Housefull 2 - The Dirty Dozen’ would be presented by Resorts World Sentosa and co-hosted by Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Pvt Ltd.

"With our great venues, setting and varied offerings, we are the perfect backdrop for movie shoots, and we are ready for Bollywood, or even Hollywood should they come calling," said Andrea Teo, Vice President of Entertainment, Resorts World Sentosa.
