Sanju movie Weekend Box office collection and Earning Report.

Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani and starring Ranbir Kapoor as the famed and controversial star, Sanjay Dutt has triumphed at the Box office. It has recorded highest number of collection for a Hindi movie, in history, having shattered the record previously held by Baahubali, which accumulated ₹ 46.50 cr on Sunday, while Sanju has made ₹ 46.71 cr. It now commands a whopping total of ₹ 120.06, surpassing the weekend business of Padamaavat, and Tiger Zinda Hai. This is an incredible result for the movie, since it centres on a controversial figure, and has gotten criticism for whitewashing Sanjay’s criminal past and his abusive relationships.

Ranbir Kapoor, who has had a lot of downs in his career lately should be relieved now. His performance has been hailed as one of the best of this year, and even though critics have pointed out many flaws from the narrative, they can’t fault his imitation of the Khalnayak.

This is also another easy hit for Rajkumar Hirani, who has become one of the greatest entertainers in the Indian film Industry. Even if his movies don’t have complexities of better dramatic stories, they have an entertaining and emotional quotient that is missing from many Bollywood movies these days, and that’s why the audiences trust him with their money. He has a tendency to make simplify the narratives and the characters, and adding quirks to the characters, which is greatly enjoyed by the audiences. He doesn’t make bleak or realist movies. His mode of film making is the old school escapist cinema. A biopic on Sanju could have been more stark and unforgiving of the actor, but instead, Rajkumar focused on Sanjay’s relationship with the people around him, and didn’t show him as the culprit of any crimes that he committed, thus ensuring that people sympathized with him, and wanted to know about his life.
