Luka Chuppi bears considerable expectations, especially since both protagonists come into the project from their past successes of Bareilly Ki Barfi (Kriti Sanon) and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (Kartik Aaryan). Kriti and Kartik have both proved themselves not only as actors but also commercially viable.

Coincidentally, Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, which crossed the Rs 100 crore mark at the box office, released the same time this year.

Dinesh Vijan added in a statement, “At Maddock, we’ve always tried to ensure we achieve a balance between content and commercial cinema. Stree has been a big boost and we can’t wait for Luka Chuppi now. Kartik and Kriti have done a phenomenal job and it’s exciting to bring it to the audiences.”

Luka Chuppi is supported by Aparshakti Khurana, Pankaj Tripathi, and Vinay Pathak in pivotal roles.
