Thwarting all expectations and criticism of misogyny, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has managed to inch towards the coveted Rs 100 crore club, with its total collections now standing at a whopping Rs 93.64 crore.

Leading trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about this remarkable feat by Luv Ranjan’s romantic comedy.

The movie, which released on 23 February, beat Akshay Kumar’s Padman to become the second highest-grossing film of 2018 so far, and was also not affected by the release of Anushka Sharma’s Pari. However, with the release of Ajay Devgn’s highly awaited release, Raid, this week, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety might not be able to breach the Rs 100 crore mark.

Luv Ranjan, known for directing Pyaar Ka Punchnama, had spoken to IANS about the initial success of his film despite no stars in its cast and said,For me, my actors Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh are stars. And beyond them, it's the script that is the superstar. We always knew we were making a film that would appeal to the youth. Critics called the film anti-women, misogynistic. But that didn't bother me. I was looking beyond the criticism."
