Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh has confirmed Housefull 4 will continue to dominate at the ticket counters. He wrote on Twitter, “BOUpdate: HouseFull4 records excellent occupancy on weekdays. Will dominate in Week 2 as well... #SaandKiAankh is slowly and steadily making its presence felt. #Mumbai and #DelhiUP circuits best... #Tamil biggie #Bigil is fantastic in Week 1.”

 

Akshay had earlier thanked fans for their love and tweeted, “Thank you for loving us and laughing with us. It is because of your love we are where we are today. Thanks to all my fans and audiences who have poured unconditional love on #HouseFull4. Thank you for showing us that nothing beats hate more than love.”

 

Written and directed by Farhad Samji, Housefull 4 is set in two timelines and also stars Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda, Chunky Panday, Pooja Hegde, Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol and Johnny Lever. The film is based on reincarnation and spans 600 years from 1419 to 2019.

Meanwhile, the report added, Ujda Chaman gained slightly towards the evening in the Delhi - NCR belt. The film is made on an estimated budget of Rs 7 crore, excluding promotional expenses.

Directed by Abhishek Pathak, Ujda Chaman is an official remake of Kannada film Ondu Motteya Kathe and tells the story of a young balding man essayed by Sunny Singh.
