While talking to Firstpost about Ranbir's acting skills, Rishi Kapoor said "He (Ranbir Kapoor) is far superior than me. Yeh apne maa ke pet se acting seekh kar aate hai (They learn acting from their mother's womb itself)."

In an interview with DNA, Hirani said that the anecdotes that Dutt had told him during an impromptu meeting stayed with him for a long time. He says that Sanjay's life, which has been full of ups and terrifying lows, is like a "goldmine" for any filmmaker.

Sanju toppled box office records of opening day and weekend effortlessly; tackling Baahubali by breaking a single day collection record.
