After earning Rs 46.71 crore on Sunday, the film's total collection now stands at Rs 120.06 crore. Previously the film earned 34.75 crore on Friday and 38.60 crore on Saturday. It has now become the highest weekend opener of 2018, breaking the record held by Salman Khan Eid-release Race 3.
With this, the movie also entered into the coveted 100 crore club of Bollywood. Looking at the pace of the film, Sanju will soon lead the pack in the Rs 200 crore club as well. The movie was released across 4000 screens in India, and over 1300 screens overseas.
Sanju received mostly positive reviews from critics, with particular praise for Kapoor's performance and Hirani's direction. Swetha Ramakrishnan of Firstpost praised the performances of the cast, especially Kapoor, further writing, "the film doesn't attempt to decode Sanjay Dutt or justify his life. Neither does it try to whitewash his flaws." Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave the film four and a half stars out of five and writes, "Sanju is an entertaining saga that blends emotions, humour and drama in adequate doses. It is powerful, engaging, emotional as well as compelling". Meena Iyer of Daily News and Analysis similarly rated the film four and a half stars out of five, stating that "it's an emotional roller-coaster that will give you the satisfaction of having read a bestseller."
