Sanju crossed the 100-crore mark on its release weekend and has touched Rs 200 crore in its first week. The film is showing no sign of slowing at the box office even as its collections continue to soar. The dream run of the film is expected to continue and distributors echo the sentiment. They anticipate the film to surpass the Rs 250 crore mark by end of the second weekend.

Sanju has the stamp of a super hit. The second weekend will earn at least Rs 55-60 crore for the movie. In my territory, the collections will be in the range of Rs 15-20 crore. All the night shows on Saturday and Sunday are almost full. Now, the collections don’t really matter any more for a film that has done so well.
Ravi Machchar, Nizam
Pan-India, Sanju will earn Rs 45-50 crore this weekend and it should earn Rs 2.5 crore in my circuit. There is a large repeat audience coming to see the movie and the night shows are going to be extraordinary. There is no drop in the occupancy after the 3 o’ clock show. Whatever drop is there is only because of the rain. Post-Sunday, the movie may cross the Rs 250-crore mark.
Jeetu Khandelwal, Orissa
Last week’s collections in my circuit were Rs 2.5 crore. For Saturday and Sunday, the night shows are almost full in multiplexes. The movie should earn Rs 40 lakh in my circuit and around Rs 35-40 crore pan-India, this weekend. The rains has affected business but not very much.
Gaurav Ruparel, Saurashtra
The second weekend is going to be amazing for Sanju’s business. The movie will easily earn Rs 250 crore by Sunday. In my circuit, the film will earn Rs 45-50 lakh this weekend and Rs 45-50 crore across India by the weekend. In multiplexes, the night shows for Saturday and Sunday are full and the evening and afternoon shows will also be great.
B H Basha, Mysore
Last week’s earning from the film was Rs 14 crore in my territory. The movie is doing very well and has exceeded my expectations. It will earn Rs 50 crore this weekend ,so by Sunday it should earn Rs 250 crore, pan-India. In my territory, it should make more than Rs 2 crore. Occupancy of the morning and noon shows was 15-20 per cent but the evening and night shows are very good.
Gaurrav Gaur, Rajasthan
For Saturday and Sunday, all the evening and night shows of Sanju are booked, and tickets are available only for the morning and noon shows. At the weekend, the movie will earn around Rs 5 crore in my circuit and at least Rs 50 crore across India. Sanju has a good chance of touching Rs 250 crore after the second weekend.
Debashish Dey, West Bengal
In next three days, Sanju will earn above Rs 50 crore in India and Rs 2.1 crore in my territory. I have observed that in my area, the matinee and evening shows are doing better than the noon and night shows. This is because a lot of families are walking in for the movie and people here are a little conservative so they do not prefer late night shows.
Jaspal Dhingra, East Punjab
Last week, this movie earned Rs 20-21 crore in my territory. The second weekend is definitely going to be good for Sanju. Pan-India, the earnings will be above Rs 45 crore this weekend and in my territory Rs 5 crore. The night shows are 80-per cent full for this weekend.
