The collection of Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon romantic-drama, Luka Chuppi, kept ringing at the ticket window while the Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee and Ashotush Rana starrer Sonchiriya faces a bleak future at the box office.
Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon starrer Luka Chuppi had a fabulous first week as it posted better-than-expected result. Luke Chuppi opened on first day with Rs 8.01 crores while it saw a fabulous growth on Saturday with Rs 10.08 crores. The collections escalated to Rs 14.04 crores on Sunday while Monday was very good Rs 7.90 crores due to the Maha Shrivratri holiday. The earnings were steady on Tuesday with Rs 5.04 crores while Wednesday was amazing with Rs 4.60 crores.
As per early estimates, the comedy-drama did very well on Thursday dropping to just Rs 4.11 crores, bringing a staggering total to Rs 53.78 crores. Released in 2100+ screens, the collection of Luka Chuppi has crossed its budget of Rs 25 crores (Production Cost: 18 Crores, Prints & Advertising Cost: 7 Crores)
Abhishek Chaubey directed Sonchiriya is going nowhere inspite of earning good reviews. The dacoit-drama opened to a very poor response at the box office with just Rs 1.20 crores followed by slight growth on Saturday to Rs 1.50 crores followed by Rs 1.90 crores on Sunday while Monday was good with Rs 1.10 crores. The collections on Tuesday was bad with Rs 70 lakhs while Wednesday was Rs 60 lakhs.
As per early estimates, the Sushant Singht Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpai, Ashutosh Rana and Ranvir Shorey starrer collected close to Rs 0.50 crores on its first Thursday, bringing the total to Rs 7.50 crores. Considering the budget of Sonchiriya which is Rs 30 Crore all inclusive of prints and advertising cost (Production Cost: 22 Crores, Prints & Advertising Cost: 8 Crores), Sonchiriya will be a colossal disaster at the box office.
