This would be probably the last week for Sanju to mint money as next week sees a release of 2 big movies Soorma and Ant-man. And if you were thinking that its an end for Sanju way far from creating history then you are highly mistaken. This Rajkumar Hirani film is unstoppable and continues its historic run even in the second week of its release. This weekend besides the other records sees a new record of becoming the highest grosser of the second weekend of 2018 beating the previous best of Padmaavat. Read here for details.
Sanju beats the record of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Magnum Opus Padmaavat.
It is not many times that you get to see a movie doing a great business in its second week. Even the movies involving Bollywood biggies slowdown terribly in its second week. But same is not the case with Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat starred Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles and it became a blockbuster movie with its sheer charisma. With its lifetime run grossing over 300 crores, the film has become the lifetime best for all the three lead actors. And as far as Sanju is concerned it has zoomed past 250 crore mark waiting to enter the 300 crore club and the first time for Ranbir Kapoor.
As per the reports by Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh, Padmaavat earned 46 crores in it’s the second weekend. During the same period, Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju has managed to collect 62.97 crores to become the highest 2nd weekend grosser of 2018.
