Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju is doing wonders on the big screen. It has become the fastest movie to enter the 200 crores club. The movie had a box office earning of more than 200 crores within 7 days. However, the movie didn’t come off easy and cheap for Rajkumar Hirani.
The movie reveals deep dark secrets of Sanjay Dutt’s life that are magnetizing the audience to the silver screens. It is believed that Sanjay Dutt was not eager to share his life’s secrets so easily to be made into a movie. His team negotiated a lot and apparently charged a whopping 9-10 crores for the movie.
Yes, if you have also been thinking that Dutt didn’t charge a penny for the movie, you were wrong. According to a source, “Sanju didn’t come for free. Sanjay Dutt’s team negotiated hard. They finally settled for an outright Rs. 9-10 crores, plus a portion of the box office profits. Only then were the film’s producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani allowed access to Sanjay Dutt’s life.”
