Akshay Kumar has been known for referring his co-stars to other filmmakers if he is indeed impressed with their work. Though he refrains from making noise around this, quite a few youngsters have benefited from this gesture of his. One such actor is Shreyas Talpade who found himself as a part of HOUSEFULL 2 starcast once Rahul Khanna had to opt out due to date issues.

Shreyas saw this favour coming his way since he has also been working with Akshay on Shirish Kunder's JOKER. Though the IQBAL actor has been around for a decade, he has never rubbed shoulders with Akshay. However once he shot for JOKER with him (they both play brothers in the film), Akshay was mighty impressed.

"Akshay feels that Shreyas is really sincere. Also, since his face is quite soft and vulnerable, there is always an element of vulnerability to it that makes his characterisation interesting. Akshay was sure that he would add value to HOUSEFULL 2," informs a source.

CHECK OUT: Joker facing the heat?

Earlier for Ajay Devgn's GOLMAAL RETURNS, when Rohit Shetty realised that Sharman Joshi was playing way too smart, he pronto replaced him with Shreyas. Though situation in HOUSEFULL 2 is much more genuine, Shreyas has found himself as a replacement actor yet again in a hit franchise.

Naturally, the makers of JOKER too are singing praises about the actor since it is their film where Akshay and Shreyas met first. "It is expected though since we have seen how effective he was earlier in Farah's OM SHANTI OM and now my film," says Shirish Kunder, director of JOKER.

After finding good trust building with Akshay, Shahrukh and Ajay, guess Shreyas would perhaps be looking at a nod of approval from Aamir and Salman as well. That would just about manage to bring him in the inside circle of all popular superstars.
