Donno how I didn’t die laughing especially @akshaykumar pa ji.”

Kriti’s sister, Nuper Sanon, took to Instagram and shared a picture from the screening. She wrote in the caption, “Wohoooooo!! Died laughinggg guys! So so so much fun!” She tagged all the central actors in her post.
Screenwriter Mushtaq Sheikh wrote on Twitter, “The #HouseFull4 is a complete family Diwali bonanza. A laugh riot that also packs in a story. Mega production & actors in top form.There is something endearing about a film that delivers what it promises. Blockbuster for sure. Entertainment ka bol-BALA!!

Housefull 4 is directed by Farhad Samji, who stepped in to replace Sajid Khan after the latter was accused of sexual harassment during the #MeToo movement. The film will clash at the Diwali box office with Rajkummar Rao’s Made in China, and Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s Saand Ki Aankh. “Housefull 4 should cross the ₹100 crore mark within 4-5 days,” trade analyst Girish Johar told Hindustan Times.
