Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju has been on a record-breaking spree ever since it released on June 29. In fact, after just six days, the movie has raked in Rs 183.56 crore and is already the 18th all-time top grosser in Bollywood. The Rajkumar Hirani directorial is now set to enter the Rs 200-crore club on day 7 and become the actor's first film to do so. But that's not all! It will also become the second-fastest Rs 200-crore film after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. Yes, Sanju will beat the likes of Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan to bag this huge achievement.
For those of you who don't know, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion (Hindi version only) had crossed the Rs 200-crore mark in just 6 days. Sanju is expected to achieve this feat with the same screen count (4,000 screens) in 7 days and take the second spot. Tiger Zinda and Sultan had also crossed the same mark in 7 days, but with a larger screen count, putting them in the third spot. Dangal and PK then complete the top 5 fastest Rs 200-crore films yet.
