Sanju broke all the records of the first half of the year 2018 on its opening day at the box office. Ranbir Kapoor’s film received the positive reviews from the critics and hence attracted a huge number of people in the theatres. The film opened well and set the path for its success in the coming days. Sanju bagged the highest first-day collection of 2018 in its pocket. Since the earning of the film on its opening day is very big so it would witness a limited growth on its second day. Sanju 2nd day collection is expected to remain a little over its first day.
Sanju’s Dominance in the theatres
Ranbir Kapoor’s film earned the sixth highest opening day collection of all time. Also, it earned an excellent amount despite releasing on a non-holiday. Earlier, Sanju was not expected to take this much opening but it easily crossed the amount of Rs. 30 crores on its first day. It not only surpassed the first-day collection of Race 3 but also it earned more than the first day earning of the Hollywood film, Avengers: Infinity War. Sanju has received a humongous response in the multiplexes as well as single screens. Ranbir Kapoor has made a heroic comeback after a long time.
