Sanju also features Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal, Manisha Koirala, Dia Mirza, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Jim Sarbh.
Sanju registered the highest opening for any film released in India this year. On its third day, it earned the highest single day collection ever for a Hindi film in India.
Hirani had recently thanked his audience for loving and supporting the film by not watching the leaked online version which had been doing the rounds on the internet. “Have to say that you all are exceptional human beings. You have the empathy to understand the sweat, blood, and tears that go into making a movie and you have the strength to awaken the conscience of others by requesting them not to view it,” a section of his Facebook post read.
