Bollywood movies. If the movie is continuing making Rs 20 crore each on

Sanju as it was just released two weeks ago before Sanju, but the outstanding
storytelling skill of director Rajkumar Hirani has made a great impact for the

starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Sahid Kapoor and will become
the highest grosser movie of the year.

great collection till now and will make even more. Rajkumar Hirani never
upsets his audience. He again proves his great talent as a director. Like other
Rajkumar Hirani movies, Sanju has also made a trademark in the Hindi film
industry. The movie has also hit the international box office. Sanju has marked

Friday to Sunday, compiled by ComScore. Bollywood Hungama has also
mentioned that Sanju is grossing Rs 250 crore marks in the worldwide
Ranbir Kapoor’s tremendous acting as Sanjay Dutt makes a strong impact on
the audience. People were eagerly waiting for this movie since the first teaser
