Despite having adjacent release Sonchiriya and the last week’s Total Dhamaal in the opposite, it has diverted the major audience toward itself and running strongly in mass circuits as well as in metro cities.
Starring Kartik Aaryan & Kriti Sanon in lead roles, the romantic comedy has got succeed to entertain many in theatres and gained a good word of mouth. From the critics as well, Laxman Utekar’s directorial has received mostly positive reviews for its interesting & funny storyline.
On the opening day, Luka Chuppi took a decent start in the morning and recorded a fair growth post noon shows. In the end, it registered the business of 8.01 crores and become the 5th best opener of the year so far. On Saturday, after a jump of 38.58%, it collected 10.08 crore and raised 2 days total collection to 18.09 crores from 2100 screens nationwide.
In parallel, the other new Hindi offering Sonchiriya has also received mostly positive reviews from the critics as well as the viewers but still struggling at the box office. Being an offbeat crime drama, it doesn’t attract the major audience & the low screen count is also the reason behind its dull performance.
Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar & Manoj Bajpayee starrer was opened at a poor note on Friday and did the business of only 1.20 crore. On Saturday, Abhishek Chaubey’s directorial showed a limited jump but still remained low and collected 1.50 crores. After 2 days, its total collection has become 2.70 crores from 720 screens.
