After collecting Rs. 1.62 crore on its third Friday, Luka Chuppi grew further the very next day with Rs. 2.25 crore coming in. That has brought the film much closer to the Rs. 80 crore mark now, what with Rs. 79.11 crore already in its kitty.
The film has now gone past the lifetime numbers of bigger films like Baadshaho [Rs. 78 crore] and Sui Dhaaga – Made In India [Rs. 79.10 crore]. Next in line are Fukrey Returns [Rs. 80.32 crore] and Pad Man [Rs. 81.82 crore], and these should be surpassed by tomorrow.
As for the new releases, none of these is finding audiences in theatres. Photograph, Milan Talkies, Mere Pyare Prime Minister and Hamid are all staying really low with hardly any numbers coming in. One would have expected some sort of traction at least for the first three films due to names like Ritesh Batra, Tigmanshu Dhulia and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra involved. However, audiences just didn’t seem to be curious about checking these films out and that reflects in the collective number of just Rs. 0.70 crore that these four films have managed.
