‘Sanju’ grand box-office itinerary: Ranbir Kapoor’s flick rakes in 202.51 crore!

Released nationwide on June 29, the Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ seems to be hell-bent to break any previous records – has stepped into the prestigious 200-club on its seventh day – earned a whopping 202.51 crore! And it promises more in the coming day – given the increasing surge of movie-buffs outsides theatres.


“Sanju” – Scribbled and directed by phenomenal story-teller Rajkumar Hirani, is a biopic on the life and times of a veteran actor Sanjay Dutt. It charts out his roller-coaster ride to fame. The movie has burnt silver screen with the outstanding performance of debonair Kapoor scion in Sanjay Dutt’s shoes.


It promises a lot more. "Sanju" which was released on June 29, has ended the enigma shrouding the movie with Ranbir’s powerful performance. It's literally the first time in the history of Indian cinema that a biopic has been made on the life of a living actor.


Sanju Baba aka Munna Bhai aka Sanjay Dutt – an actor par excellence, has a multifaceted persona.  Gifted with mercurial temperament, the actor mocked at law on several occasions during his stint as an actor - whether it's his relation with the underworld or threatening B-town storytellers. Known for his flair for essaying diverse roles – ranging from action-oriented to rib-splitting comedy, the actor has created a special niche for himself in the Hindi film industry.
