On Friday, Ranbir Kapoor‘s Sanju directed by Rajkumar Hirani hit theatres. The film saw Ranbir stepping into Sanjay Dutt’s shoes. While the anticipation for the film was high thanks to the interesting trailer, posters and teasers released by the makers, post-release, the actor won everyone’s heart thanks to this honest performance as Dutt. After becoming the highest opener of 2018, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju has made Rs 38.60 crore on day 2 and taken its two-day total at the box office to Rs 73.35 crore.
While talking about the box office figures of Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju, trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter and wrote, “East. West. North. South… The REMARKABLE RUN continues pan India… #Sanju creates HAVOC on Day 2 [Sat]… Will cross ₹ 100 cr mark today [Sun; Day 3]… This one’s a MONEY SPINNER, a LOTTERY… Fri 34.75 cr, Sat 38.60 cr. Total: ₹ 73.35 cr. India biz.” He further added, “The two Rs – Rajkumar Hirani and Ranbir Kapoor – are the biggest beneficiaries from #Sanju… Hirani has consolidated and cemented his status with yet another SMASH HIT… Ranbir needed a Hit, the massive BO numbers to bring him back and yes, he’s back with a vengeance.”
Sanju has already broken quite a few records at the box office. Before its release, Salman Khan’s Race 3 was the highest opener and Ranbir Kapoor managed to defeat Salman at the box office game with this feat. Apart from this, Sanju is also Ranbir Kapoor’s highest opener till date. Going with the current numbers, we are pretty optimistic that Sanju will cross the Rs 100 crore mark in the opening weekend.
