When Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta and Jiah Khan strutted on the beach in their bare minimum for HOUSEFULL, not many were surprised. After all the three young women have been known for their sexy image and hence donning a two piece bikini was akin to a walk on the beach. Well, literally. However for the film's sequel, HOUSEFULL 2, which is the first release post IPL 2012 and continue showbiz entertainment after the cricket season, majority of the leading ladies would be going through a complete image makeover.
"Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Zarine Khan and Shazahn Padamsee are a completely different breed of actresses in HOUSEFULL 2," says a senior member from the film's costume department, "Asin, the senior most of them all, hasn't been known for shedding her clothes at the drop of the hat. READY, LONDON DREAMS and GHAJINI - in each of these films she was basically playing a quintessential Indian girl and hence didn't have to resort to skin show."

"Zarine too was covered from head to toe as an Indian princess in VEER. Thankfully she has made some progress with Character Dheela at least by shedding her inhibitions to some extent. That's some relief for the makers of HOUSEFULL 2," he continues.
Amongst the quartet of leading ladies, Jackie can well be considered to be most daring of all if MURDER 2 is any indication. Moving away from a coy image as created in ALADIN and JAANE KAHAN SE AAYI HAI, she has gone overtly bold in the Bhatt franchise.
"Yeah, perhaps hers is the only case when the makers of HOUSEFULL 2 would instead want to tone down the sexuality quotient," smiles the unit member, "Shazahn was way too cute in her debut effort DIL TOH BACCHHA HAI JI. She could do with some added spice to her personality in HOUSEFULL 2."
Well, we would know for sure only when HOUSEFULL 2 releases all over on 27th April 2012.
