Sajid Nadiadwala’s Akshay Kumar starrer, Housefull 2, may become the first Bollywood film to be shot in NASA’s Weightlessness Chamber. The Hollywood films which have been shot there are Apollo 13 (in 1995) and Armageddon (in 1998). While working on the script of the Housefull sequel, director Sajid Khan conceptualised a comic sequence in which Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Ritesh Deshmukh and Rahul Khanna are required to be suspended in the air and they have to cross each other’s paths.
Akshay Kumar’s NASA shoot later this year
If such a sequence were to be picturised with cables, they would get entangled when the actors crossed each other’s paths. That is when Sajid Khan and Sajid Nadiadwala thought of the Weightlessness Chamber of NASA. The two-day shooting stint will be held there between July and September this year.
