The biopic on the life of one of Bollywood's most controversial actors, Sanjay Dutt, has got a thumbs up from fans. Ranbir, who has delivered the biggest hit of his career with Sanju, has earned much praise for his performance.
It has been 16 days since Ranbir's film hit the screens, but even now, the film is running to packed houses. It remains to be seen whether Sanju will continue its victory march, as Diljit Dosanjh's Soorma and Marvel's Ant Man and The Wasp have hit the cinemas last Friday.
