Sanju stars Ranbir Kapoor Sanju box office collection day 16: This Ranbir Kapoor film is still going strong.

Rajkumar Hirani’s latest film Sanju is still going strong in its third week. The film has entered the Rs 300 crore club. Sanju is a biopic on Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor essays his role in the film. The movie also stars Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Jim Sarbh.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the figures. “More Non-holiday… Non-festival release… #Sanju crosses ₹ 300 cr mark… Now eyeing the *lifetime biz* of #BajrangiBhaijaan, #TigerZindaHai and #PK… Nett BOC… India biz… ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER,” he said.

After opening at Rs 34.75 crore, the film has been consistently minting money. Worldwide, the film has already crossed the Rs 500 crore mark. Even as newer releases are challenging this Hirani film, it is chugging along pretty nicely.

The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta had given a positive review to the film. She wrote, “Rajkumar Hirani does the only thing he can. By making Sanjay Dutt, Sanju. By choosing to show us a child-man, full of insecurities and flaws. By making the film much more about an errant son and a loving, forgiving father, than a king-size, get-outta-my-way superstar ‘jo har fikr ko dhuein mein udaata chaala gaya’. And yes, by giving that errant son a chance of redemption, because it wouldn’t be a Rajkumar Hirani film otherwise.”
