Ranbir Kapoor’s upcoming movie Sanju has a huge advance booking at multiplexes in big cities. Smaller circuits and single screens are not up to the mark, but big multiplexes can fill that void. If the advance booking numbers have anything to say, the film is going to have the biggest opening of 2018. Currently, Hollywood biggie Avengers holds the record for the biggest opener of 2018, but Sanju might replace Avengers from the numero uno position.
The advance booking for Sanju started on Saturday in big cities. The average ticket price is also high compared with Race 3, which means the similar number of footfalls will result in a higher opening figure. The film has been directed by Rajkumar Hirani whose all previous movies are big hits. The film still has one more day before release, so the final advance numbers at multiplexes may beat the advance booking numbers of the films like Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan, and Dangal. Films like Tiger Zinda Hai, Sultan, and Dangal were holiday releases whereas Sanju does not have that x-factor. Ranbir Kapoor will probably get the biggest blockbuster of his career if Hirani maintains his track record. Looking at the current trend, we are expecting the opening collection to be 30-35 crores.
