This Friday’s clash between Dinesh Vijan’s Kriti Sanon and Katrik Aaryan rom-com LUKA CHUPPI and Abhishek Chaubey’s Sushan Singh Rajput starrer SONCHIRIYA, turned out to be quite one sided.
While expectedly the youth patronisation and by and large decent reviews resulted in a 20-25 percent start for LUKA CHUPPI, unfortunately the rural setting and not so identifiable theme of SONCHIRIYA resulted in a below 10 percent start. As things stand, LUKA CHUPPI is sure to emerge as a good success (Ist day around 7 crore) while the fate of SONCHIRIYA doesn’t appear to be too bright.
Meanwhile, last week’s Fox Star Studios and Maruti International, the Indra Kumar directed Anil, Madhuri, Ajay, Arshad, Ritesh and Jaaved starrer saw a superb opening week, netting 93-94 crore from India and is sure to end up as a semi-hit if not a hit! TOTAL DHAMAAL is also a good overseas success grossing $1,250,000 from the US (till Wednesday the 27th).
