Luka Chuppi, which became the fourth highest opening day grosser of 2019 at the time of its release, was produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock Films. Critics have been full of praise for both Kartik and Kriti for their performances.
The small-town characters of both the actors in the film have resonated well with the audience. Luka Chuppi is the story of two people who fall in love and decide to have a live-in relationship. However, the family pressure and societal norms force them to lie that they are married and are, therefore, living together. The chemistry between Kartik and Kriti has been especially liked by the audience.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kriti Sanon will be next seen in Mimi, where she will be playing the role of a surrogate mother. Talking to Mid-Day about her role, she said, “Dino had acquired the rights of the Marathi film, Mala Aai Vhhaychy (2010), a while back. When he had told me about the concept, I loved it and it stayed with me. Months later, while we were on a flight, he narrated a part of the story casually to me, and I had goosebumps, and tears in my eyes. When a film has that effect o you, you know you have to do it.”
