Romantic comedy Luka Chuppi had surpassed expectations with its big opening at the box office on the first day of its release, and as it is about to complete one week, it is still going steady. The movie, starring actors Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon and directed by Laxman Utekar, had not only done well but surpassed the first-day earnings of movies like Raazi, Stree and Badhaai Ho. Now the movie, which was released on March 1, looks set to cross the Rs 50 crore mark.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted out how much the movie had minted over the week and stated that it is still going steady on day 6 earning Rs 4.60 crore and bringing the total so far to Rs 49.67 crore. What remains to be seen now is how well it does in the second week.
Luka Chuppi, which has become the fourth highest opening day grosser of 2019, was produced by Dinesh Vijan under the banner of Maddock Films. The movie, which also starred Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana and Vinay Pathak in key roles, tells the story of a television reporter in Mathura who cohabits with a headstrong woman. Critics have been full of praise for both Kartik and Kriti for their performances.
Kartik, who had made his acting debut in 2011 with Pyaar Ka Punchnama, has starred in a good number of movies, and will next be seen in Pati Patni Aur Woh. Kriti, on the other hand, made her acting debut with the Telugu psychological thriller 1: Nenokkadine. She will be seen next in Kalank, Arjun Patiala, Housefull 4, and Panipat.
