“He is a great actor and his comic timing is great. I have not worked with him for nearly 8 years… I was looking forward to work with him,” Riteish told reporters in a group interview here.
The actors have also worked together in films like “Bluffmaster!” and “Naach”.
The third instalment of the “Housefull” franchise is directed by Sajid-Farhad while the earlier two films were directed by Sajid Khan. Riteish says he did miss Sajid in the new film.
“Sajid and Farhad had written ‘Housefull 2’ so they are not completely new to this zone. As directors, they did exactly what they wanted. It was not too new for them. Sajid Khan is a close friend and yes we did miss him,” he said.
“Housefull 3” features actors including Akshay Kumar, Riteish, Abhishek, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon. The film will release on June 3.
