Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has emerged as a big success at the Box Office. After taking an opening of 6.42 crore, the film has practically maintained an average of this number right through its seven days. With 45 crore* in its kitty so far, the Luv Ranjan directed film has seen one of the best trending in the recent times, especially for this genre.
What is even more interesting is the fact that the collections are on similar lines as last year’s surprise Superhit Fukrey Returns. That film had taken a better opening [8.10 crore] and then completed its first week at 50.55 crore. Though Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety had started on a relatively lower note, the collections are catching up well.
Both films have been made at similar budget though Fukrey Returns catered primarily to the youth whereas Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is reaching out to youth as well as the family audiences. That gives it a much better chance to consolidate its position further at the Box Office. This isn’t all as there is no major competition either in the current week and hence the Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh film is expected to bring in moolah on a constant basis.
Fukrey Returns had finished its lifetime at 80.32 crore and now it has to be seen whether Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety just about manages to come close to this score or go well past it.
