However the filmmakers are now being accused of inflating the figures of the film. Despite getting bad reviews from critics and audiences the film has been doing great at the box office. Industry analyst Sumit Kadel pointed out that the film producers might be inflating the numbers and said that Housefull 4 has only made Rs 72 crore nett. A few other Bollywood trade analysts also pointed out the same.
Here are some tweets:

Its not the collection of any last week release , its Ghaplation which is 4 cr more than the combined 4 days collection of #MadeInChina & #SaandhKiAankh . History created.
Entire film industry is shocked after seeing HUGE manipulation in collection that too by a reputed distribution company. Getting lot of calls from industry folks congratulating me for speaking up against it , but if all wont speak up, this inflation game will never stop.— Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) October 29, 2019
HOUSEFULL 4 is the most deceitful film of the decade. Deceived people in the theatres, now trying to deceive ppl through fake collections. Talk to any respected distributor or top exhibitor & they'll tell u the truth. HOUSEFULL 4 has collected Rs 70 crore net in 4 days. DISASTER. https://t.co/cmO6LuhG8L— Navneet Mundhra (@navneet_mundhra) October 29, 2019
Its very easy to fool a particular fan base, who are trying really hard to compete with every star, When your film has done low but decent business over weekend and has taken a jump on monday, the distribution team should behave professionally and must not inflate numbers...— Rohit Jaiswal (@rohitjswl01) October 29, 2019
