Sanju has entered the Rs. 300 Crore club on its third Saturday. In the process, it has turned out to be only the seventh Bollywood film to achieve this remarkable feat. This isn’t all as it is the only film to have managed this run despite the fact that there hasn’t been a single festival/national holiday helping its cause.
The film has also turned out to be the fifth highest grosser of all times as it has surpassed the collections of Padmaavat and Sultan. This is how the lifetime collections look like for the Rs. 300 Crore Club films:
Dangal – Rs. 387.37 crore
PK – Rs. 340.80 crore
Tiger Zinda Hai – Rs. 339.25 crore
Bajrangi Bhaijaan – Rs. 321 crore
Sanju – Rs. 307.53 crore
Padmaavat – Rs. 302.15 crore
Sultan – Rs. 301.50 crore
Lifetime numbers of Bajrangi Bhaijaan would be crossed by Sanju during the third week and post that its chase would begin towards Tiger Zinda Hai and PK.
Amongst all these films, Sanju also has the least cost of production and hence the ROI is the highest, which further qualifies its status of being an All Time Blockbuster.
2018 is seeing a wonderful run so far with Tiger Zinda Hai continuing its stint from 2017 and Padmaavat also emerging as an All Time Blockbuster. Now with Sanju adding on to it, there are further reasons to rejoice for patrons this ‘winning season’.
