The Sanjay Dutt biopic Sanju released last week on Friday across 4000 screens in the domestic market. Since then the Rajkumar Hirani directorial starring Ranbir Kapoor has been enjoying a stellar run at the box office. In fact, after opening on a high note, the box office collections of Sanju witnessed immense growth over its opening weekend closing business at the end of the third day in excess of Rs. 100 cr.
Now on its first Monday [Day 4] in theatres, the collections of the film as expected have seen a dip. However, despite it being a working day that heralds the start of the week, the business of the film has still managed to draw in over Rs. 20 cr. In fact, collecting Rs. 25.35 cr on Monday (Day 4), Sanju has managed to surpass the fourth day business of Dhoom 3 that had collected Rs. 21.71 cr to claim the sixth spot of the Day 4 highest grossers list. If that wasn’t all, Sanju has also managed to perform better than other films like PK that collected Rs. 21.22 cr, Tubelight that collected Rs. 19.09 cr, and Judwaa 2 that collected Rs. 18 cr.
However, retaining the top spot on the list as the highest Day 4 grosser is the previously released film Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion that had collected Rs. 40.25 cr. Following this film are other big ticket releases like Tiger Zinda Hai that collected Rs. 36.54 cr, Krrish 3 that collected Rs. 35.91 cr, Bajrangi Bhaijaan that collected Rs. 27.05 cr, and Dangal that collected Rs. 25.69 cr. Interestingly though unlike Sanju, the other films on the list that precede it viz. Tiger Zinda Hai, Krrish 3, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal enjoyed releases on or around holidays that gave a further boost to collections.
While as of now, Sanju remains as the sixth highest fourth day grosser, the film continues to run to packed theatres. With audience in both metros and mass dominated sectors patronising the film, the overall business of the film looks set to cross the Rs. 200 cr mark.
