Box-Office Report: Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ is going strong even on its eighth day
Rajkumar Hirani is a master story-teller and he has proved it once again with his latest offering ‘Sanju,’ which is a biopic based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The film starring Ranbir Kapoor as Dutt has literally taken the box-office by storm.
‘Sanju’ smoothly made its entry into the 100 crore club in just three days upon its release. Going by the way the film is minting money at the box office very soon it might even make its entry into the 300 crore club.
According to a report in Box Office India, the eighth day total of the film is around 212 crore approx. ‘Sanju’ has already broken several records in terms of collection at the box office and now the film’s total collection so far has even surpassed the lifetime collection of superstar Salman Khan‘s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo‘ which has overall raked in around 210 crore approx.
Though ‘Sanju’ is receiving mixed reviews from the critics (questions are being raised about how much truth the films actually showcases about Dutt’s life), but thanks to Ranbir Kapoor’s soul-stirring performance, the film even on its eighth day is doing exceptionally well at the box-office.
Also the fact that no major film released this Friday, will pave a way for ‘Sanju’ to have a smooth run for few more days at the box office. The movie will continue it’s successful run until Shaad Ali’s biographical sports drama ‘Soorma’ starring Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu releases on July 13 followed by Karan Johar‘s ‘Dhadak’ starring Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khatter in lead roles that hits the theaters on July 20.
