MUMBAI: Deepika Padukone was bitten by the malaria bug, but the actress has resumed shooting. Sajid Khan has a houseful of actors shooting for his Housefull and so with Deepika falling ill, it was going to threaten the schedule out of gear. But according to Sajid Khan, all is well.
Talking to Businessofcinema.com from his shooting location in London, the director said, "Deepika is 90% well and she has resumed shooting." That certainly brings some relief for the producer, Sajid Nadiadwala who has some of the biggest names in the industry acting in his film.
Akshay Kumar’s dates are precious as he is shooting round the clock. He had given bulk dates for Housefull to Sajid and is expected to be with them till September end. The film unit moves from London to Italy and then for a final week of shooting in Las Vegas.
The other stars in the film are Arjun Rampal, Lara Dutta, Riteish Deshmukh and Jiah Khan.
