In four days flat, Luka Chuppi has emerged as a solid Hit already. The film gathered huge on Monday with Rs. 7.90 crore. This is quite similar to what the film had collected on its opening day [Rs. 8.10 crore] and that too was an exceptional number for a film of this scale, size and budget. Of course Mahashivratri holiday helped but still the numbers so far are really good.
So far the film has collected Rs. 40.03 crore and it would be interesting to see the kind of hold that it manages today. If it is around the Rs. 5 crore mark then it would be truly terrific. For producer Dinesh Vijan, this is now a hattrick of successes. His last release Stree was a Blockbuster and before that Hindi Medium was a Superhit too. With an eventful year ahead where Arjun Patiala and Made In China would be his next two releases, he is indeed on a roll.
On the other hand Sonchiriya has proven to be a major disappointment for all involved. The film couldn’t benefit at all from the partial holiday and at best managed to bring in numbers similar to the first day. With just Rs. 1 crore* added to its total, the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer stands at a mere Rs. 5.60 crore* and would struggle to reach Rs. 10 crore lifetime.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
