MUMBAI: As per records released by Housefull 4 team, the movie is enjoying a successful run at the box-office. However, there were several doubts about those numbers and it was being said that the production has exaggerated its collection. The movie's protagonist, Akshay Kumar has finally reacted to the controversy.
The Holiday actor was in a group interview when he was asked about the controversy related to the box-office collection of his latest release. He said, "What will I do? You can talk to theatre owners. You will keep asking me this same question four times to get an answer. The answer is I am not writing all this. These people are writing it. I am not running anything. My point of view is very simple, whatever comes in front of the media as you react to it, I react to it. So, there is nothing new about it."
He further added that no one is lying about the numbers. "There is a studio called Fox Star Studios (involved with the film) it has a big credibility. It is a corporate. It runs from LA. It is not possible. We should use our brains. They make films of millions and millions of dollars and for them to increase by three or five nothing will happen. 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 about this," the superstar said.
He was then asked if any such news upset him to which Akshay reacted, "Do I look upset? I am from that era where I have heard a lot of people say a lot of things. But I have never said anything. In my school, I was taught, 'Mind your own business'."
'Housefull 4' released two weeks ago and has done a business of 159 crores till now making it a hit at the box-office. As far as critics and audiences are concerned, the fourth installment failed to impress them.
