Laxman Utekar's film, Luka Chuppi, featuring Kartik Aaryan and Kriti Sanon can easily be touted as the surprise hit of 2019. The film was made on a budget of merely Rs 25 crore and has set the cash register ringing at the box office. Luka Chuppi revolved around the lives of Vinod aka Guddu, Rashmi Trivedi and their traditional families, who assumed that the duo is already married. The simplicity of Kartik and Kriti's characters and the film's small-town setup, among many other things contributed to Luka Chuppi's success. Globally, the movie raked in Rs 124.49 crore, whereas in the domestic circle, Utekar's directorial collected Rs 92. 73 crore.
This incredible success of Luka Chuppi has added a lot to Kartik and Kriti's career graph. Kriti has entered a new league altogether. Last week, when BollywoodLife interacted with the actress, she was all happy while talking about the appreciation she received for her character and the film.
Talking about the box office success of Luka Chuppi, Kriti said, "To be very honest, I knew that Luka Chuppi was a sweet and funny film - the one which you would like to watch with your families and friends. It was a budget film, set in a small town. I obviously didn't expect it to do this well. As every week passed, Luka Chuppi kept surpassing our expectations. This has made a point that it doesn't matter what the budget of a film is. If you entertain the audience or give them something new, that's about it, that is all they need."
Kriti is currently on top of her game, with more and more actresses contributing to box office numbers. The actress confessed that she is happy with this change. "A lot of parts are being written for female actors now. People are watching female-oriented films, fetching good numbers and earning the confidence of more and more producers and directors. So, it is a great change that has happened in the industry in the past few years. I feel it is a great time for actresses to be working right now," said Kriti.
We absolutely agree with Kriti's thought. There has been a drastic reform in the industry and at the end of the day, it is a happy change. Also, while Luka Chuppi has worked exceptionally well at the BO, we hope Kriti has more successful movies to her credit. Having said that, the actress has three big projects lined up - Arjun Patiala, Panipat and Housefull 4.
Kriti has also shot for a special dance number, Aira Gaira, in Kalank, which releases on April 17.
