Romantic-comedy Luka Chuppi has maintained its rhythm at the box office, minting Rs 3.04 on the eighth day of its release. The movie, which stars Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon, had had a big opening on the first day, and though it is facing stiff competition from newly released Hollywood movie Captain Marvel, it is still doing well. The total of the movie so far has been put at Rs 56.74 crore.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh had tweeted out the numbers and stated that though it has slightly been affected by the release of Captain Marvel, it is expected to gather speed over the weekend.
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.
