Rajkumar Hirani directorial Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju is in its fourth week but the numbers don’t stop pouring in. The movie that stars Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt has already earned Rs 333.55 crore and is steadily racing towards the Rs 350 crore mark.
After emerging as the highest opener of 2018, creating history by recording the highest single day collection, and entering the glorious Rs 300 crore club, Ranbir Kapoor's first, the film is eyeing to smash PK and Tiger Zinda Hai’s lifetime records as well. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to social media and revealed,
It is learned that on 4th Monday after a drop of 20%, Sanju minted the amount of 1.02 crore. With a further decrement, it bagged 0.95 crore on 4th Tuesday and raised its 26 days total collection to 335.52 crores.
Not just the domestic box office but Sanju has managed to impress the International audience as well. While the movie is facing tough competition with Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter starrer Dhadak, it remains unbeatable when it comes to numbers.
According to our critic Shalu Singh, “Sanju doesn't aim to glorify Sanjay Dutt and the makers make this crystal clear in the first scene when Piyush Mishra as a servile biographer is kicked out of the house, making way for the entry of Anushka Sharma, who plays an impartial writer, Vinnie Dias. Sanju is the narrative of two major incidents in Dutt's life. The first half shows how the actor set to make his Bollywood debut, directed by his dad Sunil Dutt becomes a drug addict. Ranbir's naivety and vulnerability as young Sanjay Dutt strike a chord with your heart. In pre-interval, Ranbir is like any one of us- a young boy who is clueless about his career and can make a mess out of his life at any point.
The second half brings into the scene a much-balanced Sanjay Dutt, who is now facing consequences of decisions he made in his younger days. The post-interval of Sanju gives glimpses of Babri Masjid demolition and how the incident triggered riots and Mumbai bomb blasts.”
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios, Sanju released last Friday of June on 29th. The film also stars Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma, Boman Irani, Dia Mirza, Jim Sarbh, Sayaji Shinde and Sonam Kapoor.
