All the mystery around the box-office collections of Akshay Kumar’s latest Diwali release – Housefull 4 – seems to be never-ending. Only yesterday, social media was buzzing with outrage against the makers of Housefull 4, whom they accused of inflating the film’s box-office figures. Right from the netizens to a lot of trade personalities, many of them criticised Akshay Kumar and Housefull 4’s team of manipulating the figures. Now, the fifth-day collection of Housefull 4 is out and, as per it, the film has crossed the 100-crore-club, making it Akshay Kumar’s thirteenth team to achieve that feat.

Yesterday, producer Ronnie Screwvala, too, had taken an indirect jibe at Housefull 4 makers. He tweeted, “Isn’t it time everyone reports Box Office numbers accurately! @KomalNahta @taran_adarsh ... accuracy of information builds CREDIBILITY which the movie industry needs so badly ... and not sure how long-to appease egos will Studios and all keep encouraging pumped up data on numbers.”
