There seems to be absolutely no stopping for the phenomenal Sanju! The Ranbir Kapoor-Rajkumar Hirani masterpiece is breaking records with each passing day. The film has collected Rs 145.41 crore in four days, a statement from the film’s producers claimed Tuesday morning.
Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani who gave Dutt one of the most lovable characters of his career with ‘Munnabhai’ has narrated the story of his troubled life and times with love and fabulous storytelling. The film has already been named the biggest opener of 2018, highest opener in Ranbir Kapoor’s career so far over the first weekend of its release.
Sanju traces the life and struggles of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. While Ranbir plays the titular role of Sanjay, Paresh Rawal essays the role of Sunil Dutt and Manisha Koirala plays Sanjay’s mom Nargis. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh, among others.
