Housefull is a popular comedy movie franchise that is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala's Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment. The franchise released four successful movies so far and is now gearing up for the release of the fifth film as well.

Over the years, the Housefull  film series has been through many ups and downs. The exclusion of director Sajid Khan after the MeToo allegations and the misogyny and sexism depicted in the movies was deemed problematic by many. However, the film did great commercially on release, grossing around Rs 800 crores, all movies combined. The franchise ranks seventh among the highest-grossing Indian film series of all time. The franchise recently announced the release of its fifth film.

On June 30, Akshay Kumar took to his  Twitter to share the first poster of Housefull 5, promising five times the madness. The movie will be directed by Tarun Mansukhani as revealed in the poster.
