From becoming the highest grossing film of the year to being the fastest film to enter the Rs. 200 and Rs. 300 cr club Sanju has bagged each of them. On the other hand, while Sanju has dominated the domestic box office records the Ranveer SinghDeepika PadukoneShahid Kapoor starrer Padmaavat comes in second with most of the overseas business records being claimed by the film.
