Rajkumar Hirani always brings something unique and interesting to the big screen. Munna Bhai series taught us about Gandhigiri, 3 Idiots showed us how beautiful friendship is and PK touched upon communalism. Making a movie on someone who has always been in the eyes of the public isn’t an easy thing to do. Despite it, Rajkumar decided to make a biopic on Sanjay Dutt, the man whose life has been nothing less than a roller coaster ride.
Sanju is shattering every possible record at the box office. The Sanjay Dutt biopic has not only won the hearts of Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor fans but the entire nation. The storyline, direction, acting – everything is worth praising. This film is a blessing for Ranbir Kapoor, who has been going through a bad patch for five years now. His last big success was Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in 2013. The biopic is soon going to be one of the biggest blockbusters ever, as it has already broken many records within just 5 days of its release.
We are still waiting for the official day 5 figures but here are all the records were broken by the film so far:
Biggest Opener Of 2018
Leaving behind the opening day collection of Salman Khan’s Race 3 & Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat, the biopic has become the biggest opener of 2018 by collecting Rs. 34.75 crore.
Highest second-day collection of 2018:
On the second day of its release, Ranbir Kapoor starrer minted Rs. 38.06 crore. Race 3 made Rs 37 crore on its second day.
Highest third-day collection of 2018:
The movie grossed a massive Rs 46.71 crore on the third day, taking its collection to Rs 120.06 crore in the global market.

Despite having a non-holiday week and reduced ticket prices during weekdays, Sanju broke the highest single day record of Baahubali 2: The Conclusion by earning a whopping sum of Rs. 46.71 crore.
Biggest opening weekend grosser of all time for a Bollywood film
Sanju isn’t just the biggest opener of 2018, but also the highest opening weekend grosser. Beating the likes of Padmaavat, which earned Rs 114 crore in its first weekend, Sanju earned Rs. 120.06 crore.
Highest Opener Ever For Ranbir Kapoor & Rajkumar Hirani
With the earnings of Rajkumar Hirani & Ranbir Kapoor, it all changed for Ranbir Kapoor with Sanju. Before Sanju, Ranbir’s biggest opener was Besharam, which made Rs 21.56 crore. Now, the biopic has become the biggest opener of Ranbir’s decade-long career.
Rajkumar Hirani’s highest opener was Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan-starrer PK, which grossed 26.63 crores on Day 1. He has proved that good storyline and a talented star cast is all you need for a super hit movie.
