The Hush Post: Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju has garnered Rs 34.75 crore on Day 1, reported Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. It is a blockbuster opening for Sanju since the film has emerged as the biggest opener of 2018. The Rajkumar Hirani-directed film will surpass the Rs 100 crore mark in 3 days if trade analysts are to be believed.
Taran Adarsh tweeted, “Non-holiday… Non-festival release… Yet,#Sanju packs a PHENOMENAL TOTAL on Day 1… Emerges the BIGGEST OPENER of 2018 [so far]… Also, Ranbir’s HIGHEST OPENER to date… Expected to cross ₹ 100 cr in 3 days, as per trends… Fri ₹ 34.75 cr. India biz”.
It has left behind the other films in the first day openings released this year:
Sanju: ₹ 34.75 cr
Race 3: 29.17 cr
Baaghi2: ₹ 25.10 cr
Padmaavat: ₹ 19 cr [Thu release; incl Wed previews ₹ 24 cr]
Veere De wedding: ₹ 10.70 cr
Ranbir Kapoor seems to have risen like a phoenix, especially after his last film with ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif became a disastrous flop. With Sanju’s success and his love life going great, Ranbir Kapoor has got a big thumps up. This is Ranbir’s biggest and best film till date amongst his other films like Saanwariya, Rockstar, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Tamasha.
