Sanju, which stars Ranbir Kapoor, is unstoppable at the box-office! Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Sanju is based on the rollercoaster ride life of superstar Sanjay Dutt. The film sheds light on the early life of Sanjay Dutt, his relationship with his parents, his best friend, his drug addiction, and his involvement in the infamous 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts. Ranbir has nailed Sanjay Dutt's character with ease and perfection and has received immense love and appreciation for his acting in the film.

And now, according to box office reports, with Rs 341.22 crore, Sanju has emerged as the third highest grossing film ever in the history of Bollywood. With this, Ranbir Kapoor has emerged as the new king of B-town, as his film has defeated the likes of Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, and Tiger Zinda Hai, and Aamir Khan's PK, to comfortably obtain the third spot on the box office charts. Now, there are only two more films ahead of Sanju, which are Baahubali 2- The Conclusion (Rs 510.99 crore) and Aamir Khan’s Dangal (Rs 387.38 crore).
 

 

For Ranbir Kapoor, whose earlier films rarely crossed Rs 100 crore, Sanju is the first film to enter the Rs 300 crore club. The film has also become Rajkumar Hirani's highest grossing film of all times. Sanju has recorded the highest opening day collection of 2018, leaving behind Kareena Kapoor Khan's Veere Di Wedding, and Salman Khan's Race 3. It is also the second highest grossing film ever when it comes to first weekend collections.

Even after a month of its release, Sanju is giving a tough time to the fresh releases like Dhadak, Soorma, Fanney Khan, Karwaan, and Mulk among the others. Even Sanjay Dutt's own film Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster could not register itself at the box office due to Sanju

Apart from Ranbir Kapoor, the film also stars Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt, Dia Mirza as Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanayata, and Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay Dutt's best friend Kamlesh. 


 

In terms of worldwide collection, Sanju has already earned Rs 500 crore. The film released on June 29.

Comments

these kind of titles are just building ranbir up for a fall again... just comment on his acting merit thats it success will come

The movie did well and good for ranbir. Butcomparing him to mega super stars like Salman and Aamir is far fetched. Both have been around for decades and have sustained the same if not more mega level of success. That is something to be commended. No other actors have been this successful for this long. Until ranbir is able to achieve and sustain that kind of success I would refrain from saying such statements. In his decade long career ranbir has given more flops and this is his one big hit in ages. Not to mention he does not have the same amount or level of fan - dom. That Salman Aamir it even srk have. They are on another level and comparing ranbir to that is laughable. Please be smarter !

Raju Hirani = Stupid + Overrated Director = Overrated films such as 3 idiots, PK and now Sanju. Sanju would have still made as much money even if Raju casted Rajkumar Rao as Sanju. RK said it best when he states that this project “chose him” as he can’t take any credit for either it’s success or failure!

Raj Kumar Hirani should make movies by casting following actors

Hrithik Roshan
Aamir Khan
Vidya Balan
Shah Rukh Khan
plus few more actors.

Bollywood need to start giving credit where credit is due... the person that we need to praise and hail as king is Raju Hirani. It's about time genius writing and direction is given accolades. Raju Hirani and Abhijat Joshi have consistently delivered superb work, not a single flop in sight. That is no mean feat.

LOL. And Varun is the new Big B then

This article is released by Rishi Kapoor!

Pappaji next bhansali ya Rajmouli ke pair padne wale hain ya hirani pe phir try marenge.

Kuch bhi matlab ? Hadh hai

ROFL! This is hilarious.....Let’s wait until Ranbir gives atleast three consecutive blockbusters (with debutante actresses) and no Raju Hirani and then I will agree he is the box office king.

Well said. Just one movie becomes a hit and the media goes berserk. Let these actors give consistent blockbusters then we will see. Partial media. The movie was not that great anyways.

I knew it. This guy something else. He will be the next Amitabh. And a sane one too.

UMMMMM dangal anyone? how was aamir beaten? :/

Nope, I think, despite it being a propaganda movie and not his best work, Sanju has proved that we are going from a "Salman Khan the actor king of box office" to a "Hirani the director king of box office", which is a step in the right direction. Highest grossing movies in Hollywood aren't because of one stupid dude like a Khan or Rajnikanth or lol, "Ranbir", like in India, it's always been because of Spielberg or James Cameron, etc.

A simple hype was created after Ye Jawani then we know Bombay Velvet happened after that. lol

Raju Hirani is the real king...all his movies are smash blockbusters...amazing consistency!!

he's the new box office king because of one hit? has history not taught the media anything? they started hyping him after YJHD and he made flop after flop after that. at least wait for his next few movies to do well before hyping him up as this BO king

LMAO

Okay since when does one hit movie make you a box office king... Sanju had everything going for it. First of all its a Rajkumar Hirani film which people will go watch regardless, then you give an interesting background story of Sanjay Dutt..it's bound to be a hit.

You mean Raju Hirani is the king. He's also given blockbusters with Sanjay Dutt!

With one movie

RK deserves this success ,, he's different actor

So you’re telling me that after ONE hit movie and a history of flops, Ranbir has taken over Aamir and Salman who have worked decades and given MULTIPLE hits?!

beta sit down with your pr both amir and salman have given far more frequently thn you

zabardasti :p

Now where are the haters who were saying this is dutt parody and will flop? Mil gaya jawab.

Well deserved rk and raju sir. You guys worked super hard and it got the rewards. Audience has spoken.

Congratulations ranbir kapoor and mr. Raju hirani and mr. Abhijat joshi. Very well deserved. Your hard work showed in the film.

Raju hirani has broken his own record PK. Claps.
Ranbir has broken his own record of highest non holiday grosser after YJHD. Wow.

Hahahahahhaa WHY is this breaking news PV? Please get your act together! SMH hahaha Box office king... What planet are you all leaving on? At least wait for his next 3 releases and then you can officially start with the nonsensical overhyping of this star child.

Raju Hirani & Sanjay Dutt must be slow clapping reading this :D

bleh, this is probably just money inflation since BB release

Hirani and Sanjay Dutt ... RK is a flop actor who have delusional pr

the joke from RK PR

lets wait and see what happens with his next release even amisha patel had Gadar lol

Bollywood cant never produce actors like dilip kumar amitabh bachan and ranbir kapoor..

Ranbir is best actor that bollywood ever had

Tit for tat salman saying ranbir cant act like babab but ranbir in return has beaten his all records that he made in christmas b eid n ranbir did it in a non holiday enough said

Salman were trying to finish ranbir carrier but look his own carrier is finsihed by ranbir now

Bogus & utterly false report. Planted by whom???

What rubbish! Ranbir Kapoor new box office king - my foot. What box office report are you talking about. Box office India, the most authentic box office rating agency, has today said Sanju is now at Rs 334 crore & will close at Rs 336 crore, well behind PK & Tiger Zinda Hai. PV- don't peddle lies obviously planted by the desperate duo of Rishi & Ranbir. Further, it is not true that Sanju has given competition to Fanney Khan & Mulk - these 2 films have flopped big time as audiences have rejected them outright on day 1 itself. Sahib biwi & gangster have flopped as well collecting only 6 crore showing again that Sanjay Dutt was never in the top league at all. Pl note also that Sanju was a Hirani film which worked also because of curiosity about Nargis & Sunil Dutt's son.

All credit goes to Hirani. Hirani does it yet again, THE REAL BOX OFFICE KING. Has been.

Salman carrier is finished lol txh higest salman movie is beaten

I told u give him right script n right director who gonna guide him n see noone can stop him

Rockstar of bollywood

New superstar

Woh woh

Pinkvill leave him alone

Who ranbir? He cant b , lets see his oder mvs, sanju wrkd bcz of hirani

Yeah RK, this is how you get back at all those industrywallas who were trying to drag you down to the grave!

Hirani is undoubtedly the box office king!

Over hyped movie, nothing is good about it, except Ranbir!

to be honest its as big as it is all due to sanjays fan base not Ranbirs.

Lol the label 'king' should be reserved until he gives atleast 3 hits consecutively.

I didnt know one hit in years makes you a king

how is he king if aamir's dangal is still ahead?

LOLWA. let's wait for a non-Hirani film. take a seat. pv, pls post

one movie doesn't make you king. consistency does.

Says Ranbir's pr

Very happy for Ranbir....Salman did try to sabotage the movie with his unwarranted comments on Ranbir and the movie Sanju....the public has sanctioned him.

LOL. King of flops gives one hit and everyone is hailing him as lord of the box office. They'll do anything to elevate these nepo-kids. And oh yes, when it comes to nepo-kids, the numbers are always inflated as the industry is behind them.

Amir Khan and Salman were also from the industry but they actually went through the struggle (look at Salman's debut movie. And for his debut movie, Amir Khan used to go around distributing flyers to advertise it). The great thing before was that there space for insiders as it was still based on talent etc. Nowadays nepo-kids are being 'superstars' before even signing a movie.

Good joke

Sam Worthington is the KING OF WORLD box office coz Avatar made 3 billion dollars. Just saying...

Oh gawd just proves Indians have terrible taste in movies. Movies like newton sink without a trace and sanju, judwaa, golmaal mint money smh.
