Akshay Kumar said Fox Star Studios, who has produced the film along side Sajid Nadiadwala, is not lying about the money Housefull 4 has made since its release on October 25.
Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar on Friday renounce that the box office numbers of his latest release Housefull 4 have been overstated, saying “nobody is going to lie about that”.
Questions have been raised on the film’s earnings but Akshay has minimize all of this.
When asked whether he is upset about it, Akshay, in a group interview said, “Do I look upset? I am from that cycle 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’.”
When nudged further, the superstar said, “It doesn’t make a huge difference. What will I do? You can talk to theater owners. You will keep asking me this same question four times to bring 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 and straight, whatever comes in front of the media as you react upon it, I also react to it. So, there is nothing new about it.”
The actor said Fox Star Studios, who has produced the film along with Sajid Nadiadwala, is not lying about the money Housefull 4 has made since its release on October 25. “There is a studio called Fox Star Studios (involved with the film) it has a big reliability. 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.
Akshay maintained that the film has done a business of about Rs 137 crore.
Reacting to the Housefull 4 controversy, some section of industry experts have said the box office numbers should not be shared on public platform.
On this, he said, “If a corporate won’t put then anyone else will put it. It is like an open book, one can call theatres and you can calculate it. I don’t think so we shouldn’t put it, we should put it.”
Meanwhile, multiplex chain owners issued a statement on Friday and said the fourth part of the Housefull franchise is a success at the box office.
HouseFull 4 has proved kids’ favourite movie of the season and they couldn’t stop laughing throughout this comic caper.”
