Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju has entered into the fourth week, but the film is still doing a decent business at the ticket counters. In the last two weeks, several new releases grabbed Sanju’s screen share. Therefore, the collection of the film witnessed a sharp decline in the third week.
As per the box office reports, the film collected 1.42 crores on fourth Friday to take its total domestic box office collection to 328.22 crores after 22 days. Karan Johar’s new release Dhadak did the major damage to Sanju, otherwise, it would have performed much better. The film is currently placed at the fifth spot in the list of highest-grossing Bollywood movies and is heading towards the third spot. It needs another 12-13 crores to achieve that feat, so a big jump is needed on both Saturday and Sunday.
After Bahubali 2, Sanju is the second film to cross 300 crores mark without any holiday or long weekend. All other movies in 300 crores club were helped by big holidays. Next week, it will lose more screens because of Sanjay Datt’s Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3, so it needs to add about 10 crores to its kitty in the fourth week to cross 340 crores in its lifetime. Looking at the current trend and competition at the box office, it seems that Sanju might not be able to touch 350 crores mark.
The box office collection of the film is as follows:
Week 1: ₹ 202.51 cr
Week 2: ₹ 92.67 cr
Week 3: ₹ 31.62 cr
Friday (Day 22): ₹ 1.42 cr
Total: ₹ 328.22 cr ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER
