Akshay Kumar returned with his Diwali offering, a comedy from one of the most successful franchises of Bollywood starring Akshay with Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol, Kriti Sanon, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde may have received poor critical reviews but audiences are willing to give it a chance and its day one figure is proof of it. The first of its kind reincarnation comedy has managed to earn a good amount of Rs 19.08 crore on its first day of release.

Popular trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account to reveal day one figures of this multi-starrer. Though the number is decent enough, we can expect the business to grow in the coming days courtesy the festive season in the country. "HouseFull4 puts up a healthy number on Day 1... Biz did not grow in evening due to pre-#Diwali festivities... Day 4 [Mon] is extremely crucial when #Diwali celebrations begin and families throng cinema halls... Fri ₹ 19.08 cr. #India biz. #HF4", he tweeted while sharing the total collection. Housefull 4 Movie Review: A Funny Akshay Kumar Owns the House in This Lowbrow, Regressive Comedy.

Housefull 4 is proving to be a tough competitor for Rajkummar Rao's Made in China and Taapsee Pannu - Bhumi Pednekar's Saand Ki Aankh. None of the other two movies were able to rake in good opening day numbers and the trait is expected to continue in the coming days. Housefull 4 has managed to beat other movies in this franchise with its first day collections and has the potential to emerge as the highest-grossing comedy movie of all time. Let's wait and watch if it is able to.
