Mumbai: If the criteria for a film`s popularity is the number of trailers of other films shown during release, then ‘Housefull 2’ is the most popular film of all times. There are a record-breaking six trailers attached to it with chances of at least two more being finalised. Sajid Nadiadwala, producer of the film, is at a loss as to how to stop the flow.
"Main kisko na bolun (Who 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 the feature film," said Nadiadwala.
For now Nadiadwala has greenlighted six trailers - 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’.
Directed by Sajid Khan, ‘Housefull 2’ is releasing Friday. The request for two of these trailers to be attached came from Nadiadwala`s leading men. Apparently Akshay Kumar and John Abraham`s requested Nadiadwala to let ‘Rowdy Rathore’ and ‘Vicky Donor’ be attached. And that isn`t the end of the story. There are at least five more filmmakers insisting on letting their trailers be attached to ‘Housefull 2’. Nadiadwala will take a call on their fate in a day`s time. The problem is ‘Housefull 2’ is already a lengthy two-hour-30-minute film. Six to eight trailers would bring the complete playing-time to nearly two hours 45 minutes.
"I`ve never felt more helpless. Evry 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 grow, I feel the trailers are not attached to `Housefull 2`. It`s the other way around. `Housefull 2` is attached to the trailers," said Nadiadwala.
