Dhoni and Raina may act in Houseful 2

As if 2 dozen top league actors were not enough for the movie Houseful 2, the Sajid Khan film is reportedly also looking to have cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina playing alongside Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Riteish Deshmukh.
According to a well-informed source, Houseful 2 is slated to be the first release after IPL 2012, on April 27, and it’s with this in mind, that Sajid Khan has scripted in some cricket stars. “Sajid Nadiadwala’s relationship with the Indian cricket team is turning out to be handy here. He has already had preliminary discussions with the cricketers and it’s just a matter of the players agreeing to dates. The audience will get a chance to see superstars from Bollywood as well as the cricket world sharing the same space.”
Sajid has worked with cricketers before. “He had managed to rope in Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Siddhu, Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan, Srinath and Parthiv Patel in the all-important climax sequence of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi,” the source said. While it is known that Sajid Khan is already finalising dates with the cricketers, there’s no word on whether they will also have dialogues to mouth or just play themselves! But a reliable source says that an all-important cricket sequence will feature as part of Houseful 2. When asked, Sajid Nadiadwala refused to comment on the names of the cricketers who have been approached for the film. Currently in London, he sent back a text message stating, “It is too early to say anything as of now.”
