Akshay Kumar is all set to bring entertainment to the Big Screen back-to-back in the coming year as well as the year later. However, the fifth installment to the hilarious franchise of Housefull is probably going to take more time than expected to hit the theatres. The film was originally planned to be released on Diwali next year. However, due to the requirement of extensive VFX in the movie, fans would need to wait a little longer as its release will be delayed by another year.
