Housefull 4 has also been accused of exaggerating box office figures by a section of media and trade analysts. Akshay said on the issue: "There is a studio called Fox Star Studios (involved with the film). It has big credibility. It is a corporate company. It runs from Los Angeles. It is not possible. We should use our brains. They make films of millions and millions of dollars and for them, an increase (in collections) by three or five means nothing. So, let's talk sense. They (Fox Star Studios) are writing it on their own (Twitter) handle and it goes everywhere, they have to report to everyone. Nobody is going to lie (on) this."

Housefull 4 is a reincarnation story, spanning a period of 600 years from 1419 to 2019. Despite being rejected by the critics, the film has been doing good business at the box office, especially in its second weekend. Housefull 4 was released alongside, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh and Rajkummar Rao's Made In China. Film Saand Ki Aankh collected Rs 17.17 crore and Made In China Rs 11 crore (approx). In the second weekend, Housefull 4 clashed with Ujda Chaman, where the later could manage to earn merely Rs 9.26 crore. Since, there is no big release in the upcoming week as well, Housefull 4 will continue to rule at the box office, according to film analysts.
