Sanju box office collection: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt’s biopic that stars Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role hit the silver screen on June 29. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the movie is centred around the life of the Munna Bhai actor and shows the many ups and downs that he has been through his rollercoaster life. While the film managed to cross the Rs 100 crore mark in a matter of just three days, it now eyes the coveted Rs 200 crore club. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh said that the film has earned an incredible Rs 22.10 crore on Tuesday. “#Sanju continues its EPIC RUN… Shows INCREDIBLE TRENDING on weekdays… Eyes ₹ 200 cr+ in Week 1… Fri 34.75 cr, Sat 38.60 cr, Sun 46.71 cr, Mon 25.35 cr, Tue 22.10 cr. Total: ₹ 167.51 cr. India biz… Heading for BLOCKBUSTER status,” he tweeted.
Earlier, film trade analyst and critic Sumit Kadel had said that the movie will collect around over Rs 20 crore on Tuesday. “#Sanju Tuesday – Started with a bang, film registered 30% occupancy at morning shows. Noon shows registering approx 40% occupancy across India. Tuesday collection is marching towards ₹ 22 crs nett,” wrote Kadel on Twitter on July 3. Ramesh Bala shared the numbers of the film till day 5 and shared a post saying, “#Sanju ‘s Early Estimates for Tuesday – July 3rd #India Nett is ₹ 21.50 Crs.. 5-Days Total is around ₹ 167 crs.. Will cross the lifetime #India Biz of #Race3 today.. Will become the 2nd Highest Grossing #Bollywood movie in #India after #Padmaavat today..”
While talking about the success of the film along with that of 3 others, movie critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh said qualitative content can turn a non-holiday week into a festival for its investors. He took to Twitter and said, “It has been proved *yet again* that timing the release of a movie during festivals/holidays does not guarantee success… If you deliver qualitative content, even a non-holiday week can turn into a festival for its investors… Examples: #Baahubali2, #SKTKS, #Raazi and #Sanju.”

Will it challenge #Dangal [highest *Hindi* grosser after #Baahubali2]? Much depends on how #Sanju fares in Week 2… It’s a wait-and-watch situation right now!”
