'Watch Housefull in theatres and avoid getting arrested'
What do you get when three stars come together to simultaneously chat with their fans?
Well, for one, you get a lot of fans shooting rapid questions at them. The stars in question were the cast and director of Housefull, Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and director Sajid Khan, who chatted about their new film which releases on April 30.
So how did the threesome fare? For those who missed out Monday's fun chat, here's the transcript:
Sajid Khan says, Hi! This is Sajid Khan. Apologies for the delay. Go ahead. We're ready to answer your questions.
Akshay Kumar says, Hi, guys this Akshay I am sorry for the delay shoot your questions.
Riteish Deshmukh says, Hi folks... We're sorry for the delay. This is Riteish here and I'm ready for your questions.

Sajid Khan answers, It's a romantic comedy entertainer with a very interesting screenplay, which I know you will enjoy.

Riteish Deshmukh answers, Hi, thank you so much.
AmandeepSingh asked, Akki, when we can see akshay in out an otu action movie something like hollywood action movies
Akshay Kumar answers, Well it is too costly to do a Hollywood kind of film. If you guys watch the film in a theatre and not support piracy, then may be one day we too can get a Hollywood kind of collection.
GreenEagle asked, hi sajid, i think u r a nice driector but plzz dont get angry on any filmfare with ashutosh or anybody
Sajid Khan answers, Ashutosh [Gowariker] and I are friends as there are no permanent enmities in Bollywood. He had his point of view and I had mine. I guess it just went a little out of control.

Riteish Deshmukh answers, Good films always run at the box office.

Riteish Deshmukh answers, Koi jaane na.
hellodost asked, yaar movie to hum hall me jake dekh lenge...aap apne baare me batoo
Sajid Khan answers, Thank you so much. You will enjoy this film with a "house full" crowd in cinemas only. The good news is that Housefull is the world's first anti-piracy software for the Internet illegal downloading adapted film. The software is called Republique and it has a hub in Mumbai, like a call centre, where Housefull will be completely tracked on the Internet. If anyone tries downloading it, not only will the files get corrupted but, guess what, your IP address will pop up and you will be prosecuted. So enjoy big-screen cinema on a big screen and avoid getting arrested.
