The Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju has been virtually unstoppable at the domestic box office. Released across 4000 screens the Rajkumar Hirani directorial that is based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt was well received by the critics and audience alike. After fast becoming one of the highest opening day, opening weekend and opening week grossers Sanju has continued to do stellar business despite new releases hitting screens.
Looking closer at the business of Sanju it is interesting to note that a bulk of the film’s domestic collections have been generated from one territory alone. In fact the total collections of Sanju within the Mumbai circuit are close to Rs. 100 cr nett. Currently pegged at Rs. 90.01 cr Sanju has become the seventh highest all-time grosser within the Mumbai circuit. However, the collections of the film do not manage to surpass the business of previous releases like Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion that collected Rs. 193.15 cr, Tiger Zinda Hai that collected Rs. 109.08 cr, PK that collected Rs. 105.2 cr, Dangal that collected Rs. 104.22 cr, Bajrangi Bhaijaan that collected Rs. 99.34 cr, and Sultan that had collected Rs. 90.35 cr.
