Sanju is leading in terms of weekend collections followed by Padmaavat, Race 3, Baaghi 2 and Raid. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film once again proves the director’s mettle as an exceptional storyteller. The film has given major career boost to Ranbir as well whose past few films could not create any magic at the box office. With Sanju he is back with a bang and will definitely sweep all the awards for this year.

Sanju has got exceptional ratings from almost all the critics although quite a few feel that the film is a PR exercise for Sanjay. Besides, Ranbir the film stars Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Manisha Koirala and Vicky Kaushal in pivotal roles. Paresh plays the role of Sunil Dutt, Sanjay’s father whereas Manisha plays the role of Nargis Dutt, Sanjay’s mother. Vicky plays the role of Sanjay’s best friend Paresh Ghelani who stood by him through thick-and-thin.
