Three pairs of reincarnated lovers reunite in the present day — but the men wind up falling for the wrong women.
#BOLLYWOOD: Get your mind out of the gutter because its full already and we have to blame Bala for all of this! The Housefull franchise is coming back for another movie run with Housefull 4. The filmmakers have been sharing posters, teasers and trailers of what is being dubbed as a reincarnation comedy.
The superstar cast starring Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Pooja Hegde and Kriti Kharbanda, the film is once again set to take us through the maze of relationships and incessant name-calling, this time, transcending generations.
And while that’s in the works, a new track for one of the titular characters dropped and it caught the internet’s attention for multiple reasons.
The soundtrack features Akshay Kumar’s character, Bala and is one of the first music videos released ahead of the film. Before we jump into what went down on the internet, check out the music video for ‘Shaitaan Ka Saala’ here:
That’s just a little over 2 minutes of Akshay being creepy as hell! Featuring the most repeated and replayed drops from the past year, the track is an instant earworm. It comes with a curious hook-step that involves a very unfortunate pelvic thrust and slicing motions that are really weird to watch in combination.
Akshay’s crazy performance in the song has garnered over 17 million views within two days on YouTube. The song shows him as Rajkumar Bala Dev Singh, who is reborn as Harry after 600 years.
The hook-step, however, on that chorus caught the attention of many and soon became a viral trend. (Sidenote: Who came up with the step in the first place?).
Here’s Ranveer Singh going wild with Bala
Earlier, Ayushmann Khurrana had shared a video of his performance to the song. The actor is currently shooting for his film Bala, in which he plays a bald character. He had posted the video on social media with the caption, “Bala ko pukara #Bala aa gaya! Best of luck @akshaykumar sir. Hum bhi jald aa rahe hain.”
Even Kareena loves Bala! Check her out here with the gang!
