Laxman Utekar's directorial venture Luka Chuppi is still drawing the crowd to the cinema halls despite being in theatres for over three weeks. Starring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon in the lead, the rom-com has certainly outperformed itself at the box office now that it's eyeing to end its theatrical run between Rs 90 to 95 crore. According to trade analysts, the film was supposed to do lifetime business of around Rs 75 crore but that obviously hasn't happened which is, of course, good news for team Luka Chuppi. Utekar's directorial venture released on March 1 and since then hasn't stopped raking in moolah at the ticket windows.
