Ranbir Kapoor's last release was Anurag Basu-directed film Jagga Jasoos, which did not do well at the box office. Sanju has also become Ranbir Kapoor's highest opening day grosser of his films so far.
Sanju opened at the theatres on Friday to positive reviews. In review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Sanju 4 stars out of 5. "Ranbir Kapoor, slipping into the skin of the troubled Bollywood star, pulls out the stops in astonishingly effective ways, subsuming his own personality completely into that of the protagonist. The director is on the top of his game and the actor frequently soars to dizzying heights. Sanju, as a result, is an entertainer that delivers more than just the superficial goods that one expects from a mass entertainer. It sets a new benchmark for Bollywood biopics. It will be a hard act to follow.
