Laxman Utekar's directorial venture Luka Chuppi will soon end its theatrical run in India with a really solid figure. Though the film, which stars Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon in the lead, won't enter the coveted Rs 100 crore club, it has already become a bonafide superhit film. The romantic comedy released on March 1 and stormed the box office from day 1 itself. The film took a massive opening and became Kartik's biggest opener till date. Luka Chuppi has been theatres for over a month now and so far it has collected Rs 94.15 crore at the domestic box office.

Apart from Luka Chuppi, Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar's Sonchiriya also released on March 1. The dacoit-drama garnered rave reviews from the critics and was also lauded by everyone on social media. However, it failed to impress the audience and get cash registers ringing.
