Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon’s romantic comedy Luka Chuppi collected Rs 8.01 crore at the box office on day 1. According to film trade analyst Taran Adarsh, this makes it Kartik’s biggest opener till date – his last film Pyaar Ka Punchnama raked in Rs 6.80 crore on the day of its premiere. He also noted that the film’s opening day collection was bigger than that of Raazi, Stree and Badhaai Ho.
Directed by by Laxman Utekar and produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, Luka Chuppi also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Vinay Pathak and Aparshakti Khurana. Reviews for the film have mostly been positive. “The story telling is simplistic and formulaic. But the proceedings are easy on the eyes and the general mirth is infectious,” writes The Quint’s Stuti Shukla.
