Ranbir Kapoor starrer movie Sanju, based on the life of Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt has tasted success on the first day at box office. Despite the day of release being a non-festive, non-holiday, Sanju collected 34.75 crore rupees on its first day as per film critic and business analyst Taran Adarsh.

Sanju has had a better opening than any other Bollywood movie in 2018 so far leaving behind Race 3 that amassed 29.17 crore rupees on its day 1. The film has also become the biggest opener for Ranbir Kapoor who’s previous best was 2013 film Besharam opposite Pallavi Sharda that had an opening day box office collection of Rs 21.56 crores.

Going by the current craze and trend of the film, Sanju should easily be able to breach the 100 crore mark in three days, market experts say.


Director Rajkumar Hirani has once again proved his mettle with Sanju. He has delivered successful hits like Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai with the original ‘Sanju baba’ in the lead role.
