Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju released on 29 June with a staggering opening collection of Rs 34.75 crore at the box office. Based on the tumultuous life of one of Bollywood's most controversial stars Sanjay Dutt, the Rajkumar Hirani-directed biopic has piqued a lot of interest among both the masses and the cinephiles. While the critics' response towards the film has been divided, Ranbir Kapoor's performance has been lauded unanimously across quarters.

On the second day, the performance of Sanju at the ticket counters was similarly phenomenal. It raked in Rs 38.6 crore in the theatres, thus taking its total collection to Rs 73.75 crore. Going by this trend, it will be no surprise if the film manages to cross the Rs 100-crore mark on its third day.

Film critic Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to reveal the figures:

Like all Hirani films, Sanju too seems to have cast a spell at the ticket counters. As for Ranbir, he earnestly needed a hit after a series of box-office duds including his very ambitious, debut production venture Jagga Jasoos.

It was reported that Sanju has already cemented its position as 2018's highest box-office opener surpassing the day 1 collections of Race 3, Padmaavat, Baaghi 2 and Veere Di Wedding. And now, if Sanju crosses the Rs 100 cr mark, it will be among the likes of Padmaavat, Raazi, Raid etc who achieved the feat earlier this year.
