Trade analysts write that the film has been faring well, mainly because Day 3 was a Sunday and Day 4 was a partial holiday due to the occasion of Mahashivratri.

Luka Chuppi is Kartik's biggest opening so far. His previous releases, Pyaar Ka Punchanama earned Rs 92 lakhs, its sequel Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 grossed Rs 6.80 crore while the opening day collection of his last release Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety was Rs 6.42 crore respectively.

The film has also become Maddock Films' third to taste success at the box office, writes Indian Express. In 2018, Stree, the horror comedy starring Shraddha Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao was among the highest grossing films.

Luka Chuppi revolves around Kartik and Kriti's characters Vinod and Rashmi. The movie narrates the tale of how they choose to be in a live-in relationship instead of getting married, and the problems that surface after it. The movie also stars Aparshakti Khurana in a pivotal role.
