Sanju released last weekend and it is all set to break records. Rajkumar Hirani’s directorial has received amazing reviews from the audiences. People are going crazy over the fact how Ranbir Kapoor has simply nailed Sanju Baba’s look!
Well, if you haven’t watched the movie yet, let me tell you that Ranbir has done a commendable job and there is not a single point where you will feel that Ranbir Kapoor in on-screen because they way he’s carried off the style and feel of Sanju! The movie now stands with a total of 120.06 crores. It’s amazing how the movie has broken a huge number of records.
Sanju, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt. Apart from Ranbir, who plays Dutt, the cast includes names like Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh.
Talking about Salman Khan’s 1st weekend collections, his latest release Race 3 had a weekend of 106.47 crores. The movie was not liked by the audiences but managed to earn huge numbers initially. Next on the list is, Tiger Zinda Hai which also starred Katrina Kaif earned 114.93 crores in its first weekend. The same year, Salman had given us Tubelight which didn’t work quite well at the box office. It earned 64.77 crores at the box office. The sport drama, Sultan (5 day weekend) earned 180.36 crores and last but not the least Prem Ratan Dhan Payo has scored 129.77 crores (4 day weekend).
