Ranbir Kapoor's 'Sanju' earns this much on Day 17 at the box office

Ranbir Kapoor's 'Sanju' earns this much on Day 17 at the box office

Ranbir Kapoor‘s blockbuster film ‘Sanju’ has completed the 3rd weekend at the box office on a great note. This film has been minting big at the ticket windows every day.

The movie went on to earn Rs 4.42 crores on 3rd Friday, Rs 7.75 crores on 3rd Saturday and Rs 9.29 crores on 3rd Sunday, taking the total to Rs 316.64 crores at the box office. ‘Sanju’ collected 202.51 crores in Week 1, 92.67 crores in Week 2 and 21.46 crores in the 3rd weekend.

Check out Taran Adarsh’s tweet:

After the steady run and great collection at the box office, RSS mouthpiece “Panchjanya” has questioned why Hindi cinema is fascinated by stories on “tainted characters”, slamming the Sanjay Dutt biopic ‘Sanju’. “Panchajanya” has minced no words as it delved on the dark phases in the life of Sanjay, who spent a jail term for possession of arms in connection with the 1993 serial blasts, was a drug addict and had multiple relationships in its cover story titled “Kirdaar, daaghdaar”.

The magazine article raises three questions about the Rajkumar Hirani directorial, which has been on a box office earning spree since releasing on June 29. It questions whether Sanjay, son of late actors Sunil and Nargis Dutt, had qualities that his life story should be glamourized on the big screen or be portrayed as if he is an idol.

And if the makers are boasting about the money that the film is minting, it proves that Indian cinema’s “high moral ground seems to be licking dust”.

Secondly, it questions if the movie is a PR exercise to whitewash a stained character because it either conceals a lot of negative things about a character who has been jailed multiple times and had been a drug addict.

“Panchajanya” has also hit out at the film’s director Hirani, pointing out how through his past movie “PK” he had made a sly remark on Hindu religion.

“Now with ‘Sanju’, what are the ideals that Hirani wants to present to the youth of India?”

It also questions if Sanjay has done any extraordinary work which is worthy of praise or has he abstained from drugs completely and become an ideal husband and actor.

The larger question, however, according to the article, remains why the Mumbai film industry brings the mafia and underworld into the spotlight by making films on India’s most wanted criminals who have a connection with the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts — sometimes on Dawood Ibrahim or his sister Haseena Parkar or Chhota Rajan or Arun Gawli.

With an opening of 20%-25% on its first day, the film stands with a grand total of 13.85 crores after the first weekend. The box office collection of the film was affected by the FIFA final match between France and Croatia.

Check out Taran’s tweet here:

The film is currently facing a tough competition from Ranbir Kapoor‘s ‘Sanju’ and Hollywood film ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp’ at the ticket windows.

Diljit Dosanjh, whose performance as hockey champ Sandeep Singh is winning exceptional laurels, said that ‘Soorma’ is a role of a lifetime.

“I knew ‘Soorma’ was a role of a lifetime. I am ashamed to say that when Shaad Sir (director Shaad Ali) came to me with the project I did not know anything about Sandeep Paaji. It’s a shame that we do not give the same respect and position to hockey as we do to other games in the country,” says Diljit regretfully as he embarks on a new phase in his acting career.”

The preparations to play the part took Diljit right into the field.

“A role like ‘Soorma’ happens once in a lifetime. I learnt to play hockey from scratch. And it had to be hockey on a competent level. I was playing Sandeep Singh. I couldn’t afford to look like an amateur.

“I learnt the game from Sandeep Paaji and his elder brother (Bikram Singh). By the time I was ready to face the camera I was confident of my game,” said Diljit.

The film also features Angad Bedi in a lead role.
