Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju has been on a record-breaking spree since its opening day as it got thumbs-up from moviegoers and critics. After becoming the biggest grosser of 2018 in just 15 days, the movie has now toppled Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan to become the fifth biggest grosser in the history of Bollywood movies.
As per the box office reports, the film collected 2.55 crores on third Tuesday to take its total domestic box office collection to 322.04 crores after 19 days. The film lost about 2000 screens in its third week but earned more than new releases. The movie is heading towards 340-350 crores lifetime business, which means it will become the third biggest grosser after Bahubali 2 and Dangal. This week two new releases will the theatres, so its juggernaut might face the music.
After Bahubali 2, Sanju is the second film that earned more than 300 crores without any holiday. All other top grossing films enjoyed long weekend and holidays. Trade analysts have mentioned that Sanju deserves more credit for its box-office run because it did not release on a holiday such as Eid, Diwali or Christmas unlike the other toppers on the list of highest-grossing Bollywood films.
