Box Office: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety is a hit!

February 27, 2018 09:11 IST

The hits and misses of the week.

Continuing his successful streak at the box office, Pyaar Ka Punchnama Director Luv Ranjan's latest film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety has done excellent business on its first weekend.

The other release -- the Sonakshi Sinha-Diljit Dosanjh-starrer Welcome To New York -- did poor business.
