Box-Office Report: Kartik Aaryan’s ‘Luka Chuppi’ buries Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘Sonchiriya’
Kartik Aaryan is currently going through a purple patch and his golden run at the box-office is also continuing. This past Friday (March 1) Kartik and Kriti Sanon‘s ‘Luka Chuppi’ released alongside Sushant Singh Rajput‘s dacoit drama ‘Sonchiriya’. While both films received positive reviews generally, ‘Luka Chuppi’ is clearly ahead in minting money as compared to ‘Sonchiriya’ at the box-office.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter account and shared the weekend collection of ‘Luka Chuppi’. This comedy flick by Laxman Utekar has done exceedingly well and has so far minted Rs 32.13 crore over the first weekend.
#LukaChuppi emerges a winner… Shows superb growth on Day 2 and 3… Biz doubles at many screens on Day 3… Has ₹ 30 cr+ weekend… Will remain strong today due to partial Holiday [#Mahashivratri]… Fri 8.01 cr, Sat 10.08 cr, Sun 14.04 cr. Total: ₹ 32.13 cr. India biz.

According to a report in Box Office India, ‘Sonchiriya’s poor run is showing no signs of improving and it has only collected a meagre amount of Rs 3.30 crore over the weekend. The Abhishek Chaubey directorial is a very nuanced film and it shows us the emotions and conflicts faced by dacoits in their lives.
So, it looks like ‘Luka Chuppi’ has totally thumped ‘Sonchiriya’ at the ticket counter.
