The makers of Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety can well pop the champagne. In the opening weekend itself, the film has turned out to be a safe proposition for all involved. With 26.57 crore in its kitty already, the film is now assured of a lifetime of at least 60 crore which means a Hit tag is pretty much for the taking.
Just like Fukrey Returns last year, even this Luv Ranjan directed film has emerged as a small film which is paying big dividends. Audiences have given a big thumbs-up to the film and have whole-heartedly accepted it with open arms. More than just the youth, even family audiences are stepping in theaters and this is what’s making all the difference.
Same can’t be said though about Welcome To New York which hasn’t gained much over the weekend. With just 3 crore* coming in, the film has done lesser than Sonakshi Sinha’s Noor which had brought in 5.52 crore in its opening weekend.
*Estimates. Final numbers awaited
