Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju, has broken all records to emerge the biggest grosser of 2018 garnering Rs. 300 crore at the box office. The film has raced past Padmaavat in just 16 days and has stunned everyone. The rave reviews and stellar performances worked in film’s favour and it set the cash registers ringing despite being a non-holiday release.
Taran Adarsh mentions that the film has already crossed 500 crore mark at the global box office.
The curiosity to know about the controversial life of Sanjay Dutt worked in the favour of the film and Ranbir Kapoor’s magnificent performance pulled the crowd to the theatres. The film is running in about 2000 theatres and still maintains a good hold of 30 percent occupancy. The film was bound to be a blockbuster when it crossed 100 crore mark in the first 3 days of its release.
Sanju is facing zero competition at the box office right now. Diljit Dosanjh’s Soorma despite getting pretty good reviews is not able to shake the momentum created by Sanju, though the film is getting a good run in North India because of Diljit’s stardom in this area; other parts are still dominated by Ranbir’s Sanju.
Till now these Bollywood films have made it to the coveted 300 crore club :-
