Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted out the news regarding advance booking. He said, “All eyes on Rajkumar Hirani’s keenly awaited #Sanju… The maker with the Midas touch… The hype for the film is tremendous… Fox Star Studios commence advance booking at plexes today… The countdown begins.” Currently, Salman Khan’s Race 3 is running in theatres and is making a meal out of whatever little competition it has.
