Finally, Ranbir Kapoor gets his first Rs 200 crore film.

Rajkumar Hirani's Sanju was last released last week and the fans of Ranbir Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt still just can't get over it.

It is worth noting that while Trishala was an active part of Sanjay's comeback film, Bhoomi's, publicity campaign she has been absent from any of the promotional activities of Sanju. The latter had earned Rs 202.47 crore in its entire runtime. Now the bet is on whether or not Ranbir's Sanju manages to enter the Rs 300 crore club.


"Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to confirm the box office mathematics and wrote, "#Sanju is 200 NOT OUT... That also means it will see a free run at the box office in the second week as well.

Other box office hits in the first six months of 2018 like Race 3, Baaghi 2 and Raazi added Rs 140.74 crore, Rs 112.85 crore and Rs Rs 56.59 crore respectively in the first seven days of their release.

The video also captures the attractive moments when Hirani had first texted Ranbir informing him that the first draft of his next movie (Sanju) was ready and wanted to narrate it to the actor. With the help of worldwide makeup artist Clover Wootton, Vikram Gaikwad, hair stylist Aalim Hakim and physical trainer Kunal to help Sanju team and Ranbir transform into Sanjay Dutt. Sanju gives us a Sanjay mediated by the trademark sunniness of the director's world-view in which even the most unlikely "munnabhais" (there's a Munnabhai MBBS reference in here too, which is meta piling upon meta: a star playing a star playing a much-loved character played by that star) overcome all odds and become heroes.
