Shaitan Ka Sala, or Bala, Shaitan Ka Sala (Hindi: शैतान का साला, Urdu: شَیطان کا سالا), "Bala, Brother-in-Law of the Devil", is a song from the 2019 Indian comedy film "Housefull 4"

The video clip shows Bala, a reckless medieval Rajput king played by the Indian actor Akshay Kumar, gaudily dancing, carousing, and singing praises to himself.

In the movie, Bala reincarnates into a modern-day barber called Harry, and, along with his brothers, also reincarnated, they are condemned to repeat the same toils of their previous reincarnation: marrying the wrong women.

"Sala" is a common Hindustani word meaning brother-in-law, but it is also used as a mildly insulting way to address a man (because it implies that one is in a relationship with the man's sister). In a context of confidence, it might mean "friend" or "buddy".

Many idiomatic expressions are used in the song, for example:
  • "bēṭī mausī xālā": "daughter", and 2 other words meaning "maternal aunt", is used to indicate "all women".
  • "kisī kā muṁh kālā karnā": "blacken someone's face", meaning tarnishing someone
  • "Patiala peg": a traditional "peg" or way to measure whiskey or liquor.


The lyrics were written by the Indian writer Farhad Samji, a member of the renowned director/writer duo Sajid-Farhad.

The music was composed by the Indian director and musician Sohail Sen, and the singer Vishal Dadlani, an Indian playback singer also member of the singer/producer duo Vishal-Shekhar.
