Mumbai: The makers of 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' are overjoyed with the spectacular success of the film. The Luv Ranjan directed romantic comedy which was a non-holiday release and has lesser known names in its cast, proved to be a successful affair at the box-office.
Most interestingly, 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety' doubled its collections on Saturday and scored a rare, excellent third weekend.
According to noted trade analyst Taran Adarsh, the Kartik Aaryan-Nushrat Bharucha-Sunny Singh starrer comedy film earned Rs 82.10 crore net by the end of its third weekend. The film has surpassed the lifetime collection of Akshay Kumar's social drama 'Pad Man'.

Meanwhile, T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar and Luv Films’ Luv Ranjan have pledged to make their association stronger by collaborating on multiple films in the days to come after the mega success of 'Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety'.
Last week's major release 'Hate Story 4' grossed Rs 11.75 crore net over its first weekend which is a decent number despite all negative reviews from the critics.
Richa Chadha-Pulkit Samrat starrer '3 Storeys' had a very poor weekend with the collection of Rs 1.60 crore net in its first weekend.
Taapsee Pannu film 'Dil Juunglee' had a disgraceful weekend with total number of only Rs 90 lakhs.
Next Friday will see release of Ajay Devgn starrer 'Raid'. The Raj Kumar Gupta directed social thriller tells a story of honest government officer. The film is also has Ileana D'Çruz and Saurabh Shukla in pivotal roles.
