The Rajkumar Hirani directorial venture Sanju that released 10 days ago has been doing roaring business at the domestic box office. Starring Ranbir Kapoor, the film which is a biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt’s life has been well received by the audience and critics alike.
In this box office analysis, we take a look at the total collections of Sanju after its second weekend in theatres while comparing the same to previous releases of 2018. Though this year has been relatively good when it comes to box office collections for releases, Sanju has managed to claim the second spot on the list with a total collection of Rs. 265.48 cr at the end of its second weekend. Interestingly, though the list is still led by the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Padmaavat that had collected Rs. 302.15 cr, Sanju has managed to surpass the total life time collections of other previous releases like Race 3 that collected Rs. 166.19 cr, Baaghi 2 that collected Rs. 164.38 cr, Raazi that collected Rs. 123.68 cr, and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety that collected Rs. 108.95 cr.
If that wasn’t all, given the fact that this week sees not big release hitting screens, Sanju that released 10 days ago is expected to continue its run at the box office. In fact, predictions state that Sanju is likely to near the Rs. 300 cr mark by the end of its second week running, and might also emerge as the highest grossing releases this year as well.
