Producer Sajid Nadiadwala’s next installment in the Housefull series features three leading ladies -- Nargis Fakhri, Lisa Haydon and Jacqueline Fernandez -- who can’t speak Hindi.

So apparently, one of Housefull 2 stars John Abraham had to be replaced by Abhishek Bachchan because the latter speaks better Hindi.

“Since we have three ladies who can’t speak Hindi, we needed three heroes who'd be fluent in it. Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh fit the bill and share great chemistry on screen,” a source close to the film explains.

“The Housefull 3 ladies can’t speak Hindi. They can’t talk to one another because they don’t know each other. This is a tough one. We’re working on it,” the source adds. 

Word is, director duo Sajid-Farhad (who replace Sajid Khan who's directed the first two Housefull films) plan to work on the language aspect with his leading ladies.

Interestingly, Housefull 3 will also be shot entirely in London like its predecessors.

“Every Housefull film has been shot in London. This is a London franchise,” says Sajid Nadiadwala.
