Heading for blockbuster status," Taran Adarsh tweeted.

Here's Sanju's Day 5 box office report.


Sanju "demolished" a Baahubali 2 (Hindi) record (of being the highest single day grosser for a Hindi film) and it closed the first weekend with remarkable collections. Sanju box office report Day 4.




Despite being a non-holiday release, Sanju is doing wonders at the box office. Ranbir Kapoor's film emerged as the highest-opening weekend grosser of 2018, toppling the collections of films like Race 3 and "Padmaavat."






In his review for NDTV, film critic Saibal Chatterjee gave Sanju 4 stars out of 5. "The 160-minute film, which is essentially a touching father-son drama that also pays tribute to some of Hindi cinema's greatest lyricists, glides through its busy, pulsating narrative without ever suffering anything akin to an ungainly wobble. Kapoor shines bright. That is actually an understatement. He dazzles us; he catches us unawares; and he sweeps us off our feet. In one word, he is luminous," he wrote.

Sanju is a biopic based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The story encompasses the actor's ups and downs in his career as well as personal life. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, Ranbir Kapoor plays the protagonist in the film. Sanju also stars Vicky Kaushal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Karishma Tanna, Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala.
