Highest Opening Weekends of All Time: Sanju tops

Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju has set all time opening weekend record by grossing around 120.06 crores. The film has beaten Salman Khan's Tiger Zinda Hai which was a Christmas release.

Sanju has set all-time records despite being released on non-holiday. It has easily outgrossed other bigger films like Dangal, Race 3 and Sultan. Interestingly after Sanju all the top 15 films were holiday releases and 13 of them were released on major festivals. While Sanju has done this without an extra holiday.

Ranbir Kapoor has bounced back big time as he now commands many box office records. The actor was on an all time high in 2013 but delivered many duds later on. Sanju will mark the perfect comeback for him as it will prove to be a total game changer.

  1. 2018 me bhut unexpected cheez ho rha ..bhut ajeeb year hai ..yakeen nahi ho rha sb ko peeche chor ke non holiday me 4000 screens me 120cr weekend

    Weekend pe 100cr cross kr leta tha khans ki movie to sb bolta tha bhut bara achievement hai bhut bara record hai ..yaha ranbir ne 120cr kr dia baaap re baap vo bhi biopic se

    1. 46.71cr majority credit goes to Rajkumar Hirani, maybe even all credit!

      From munnabhai to sanju, hes given a new life to every actors career!!

      Lets be honest i know ghajini was an blockbuster, but hirani gave him his biggest movie he coule show everyone and be proud of!

      No wonder SRK always say im the fourth idiot for not accepting hirani's offer!!

      1. Why are u snatching the credit from Ranbir ? Raju sir is genious but Ranbir also does fantastic job .he have to play Sanjay dutt's role from teenager to 60 years .and he give his best .if there was Salman then film would have rejected as people can't tolerate pathetic acting .

        1. Ranbir Kapoor is a talented actor, no doubt about that but praise if you take out Rajkumar Hirani from Sanju, your left with nothing but good actors and story all over the place!!

          Only hirani knows what to do, i mean he made a movie on a alien and it worked, so praise Ranbir for the acting part because thats all his talent!!

          But this movie.belongs to Hirani!!

  2. @bollyarena u have add dubb for #Dangal why not for #dhoom3. After adding for D3 it is 107cr weekend

  3. Mon 22cr
    Tues 20cr
    Wed 17cr
    Thurs 15cr
    1st week 194cr ...
    300cr jaega ya nahi ye Friday ko pata chalega

    But jo bolo pehle padmavaat bina festival release ke 3500 screens or 2 states me ban me 280cr kia ...but itna collection sirf or sirf huge controversy ki vajah se hua varna 200cr bhi nahi jaata agar seedha tarah se release hota to

    Or ab sanju non holiday me 4000 screens me 250cr + kr lega

    Ranbir ranveer future ka hone vala sbse bara superstar hai or co incidence dekho dono ek ho year aisa collection ..tiger ne v 160cr

  4. In 2013 Ranbir crossed 150 crore before SRK .and now He will cross 250 or even 300 crore before SRK .

  5. so called best phase of sallu bhaijaan
    but now not a single record belongs to him

    maza agaya


    1. So you think that Aamir is going through a rough phase.....LOL

      If Ranbir breaks Salman records then it means he beat all other actors (including your Aamir).....So don't bash only Salman for this.......

      Atleast Salman had so many records in his name, and Highest Single Day is still belong to Salman.......And remember Records are meant to be broken......Before Sanju all these records are in the name of Salman.....And after Sanju wait for next Salman release, may be he'll take back all these records in his name.......

      Happy for Sanju success, its good for Industry if actors will break each other records......

    2. 13 lagataar 100+cr dena usme bhi 9 150 + cr movies ........Bhai aur kitne actor hai ......Zara bata.....

  6. Raj Kumar Hirani is a magician. We all thought it was aamir who made 3 idiots and PK super hits. But NO. Its the man behind the camera who had guts to star Ranbhir who struggled fr few years. OUTSTANDING. RKH will certainly go down as the BEST DIRECTOR OF ALL TIME!!

    Tingu bahubali phir se haar gaya

    1. Dangal hirani na bnayi thi Kya? 2000 crore ka collection ha movie ka ...... Bolna sa pehla soch liya KR .....Salman ka fan lg RHA ha tbhi faltu logic de RHA ha

    2. No matter how much dumbass jealous haters like you cry your tingu baahubali Salman is only becusse of suraj barjatya. Suraj barjatya made career of tingu baahubali. And BB credit goes to kabir khan not tingu Salman. So stay within your aukaat.

  7. well said @jeet. 100% with you.
    Salman has majority occupancy in all the top 10 data for all the records to hold.
    Aamir has highest gross.. purely on his script sence. Acting main tho ranbhir Kapoor is way ahead of aamir khan. Amir khan should retire.. LOL
    We need two types of actors.. one with star power and other with acting power..
    Star power nobody can beat mighty sallu.. acting main tho ab ranbhir hsi.. budda tingu ko ab kisko chaahiye.. LOL

    1. @Bharat as I said before there is no treatment for dumbass Salman fans and dogs. There is no difference. As they are as dumb and sick as their gawaar local star and his c grade films. Aamir is baap of acting as well as stardom and ranbir is far better actor than tingu Salman. Ranbir slapped Salman tingu by thrashing all his records and Aamir will do it with TOH. Aamir is baap of opening records and life time records with his stardom and tingu Salman is director and script dependant star. So industry needs 2 types of actors. One with star power and acting both and one with sheer acting. In stardom and acting no one is close to Aamir. And in only acting ranbir is best among others. So Buddha tingu Salman kisko chahiye??? Tingu salman ko retire ho jaana chahiye. In stardom aamir is baap of Tingu salman.

  8. Can rabbit give same collection with race 3 if he is a hero of race3.
    One film not define stardom.
    It's rajkuma hirani magic us ranbir acted very well.
    Dont compare Ranbir with other big actor even not with akshay kumar.
    If ranbir next two film open atleat 25+cr we will all agree he is got stardom.
    I have doubt even Ranbir next film will open 20cr plus.
    Its dutt biopic and Hirani magic .
    Sanjay leela bansali and now Raju hirani proved again they are great directors with flop actor....
    No one catch stardom of khans and kumar....

  9. Well done Hirani sir !!!! you made another record maker movie well done everyone from sanju big slap for those who's leak online Sanju but you can't stop the BABA/RK/Hirani sir lovers for not to watch in cinema's .

  10. I find here most of the people are KRK mind KRK comparing Ranbir with Salman same here also happening one movie cannot prove stardom also this film is Great director Raju hirani film.....
    It's a brand Raja hirani....

    KRk jealous on Salman..
    Jab log burae karre honge toh soch tarakki horahi hai...
    Salman a naam leke jire thode log KRK and from this sites KRK subha se shaam tak bas Salman Salman salman....same some ppl I find here ....
    Indeed Ranbir did great job in sanju appreciable.....
    But it's unfair. Comparing him with any other great heroes

  11. Sanju weekend crossed Race 3 and Sultan weekend which released on holiday period and had Salman Khan in his best phase. Oh wait, it also crossed Dangal, Dhoom 3, Happy New Year, Chennei Express weekend.

    What is this nonsense fan war? Stop this and enjoy the movie.

  12. Sanju success prove this that the reason behind the success of 3Idiots and PK is not Aamir but it is actually Raj Kumar Hirani.......Undoubtedly he is currently the Best Director we have in our Industry.......He can do anything......Back to Back success of Munna Series, 3Idiots, PK and now Sanju prove this.....

  13. In Top Weekend Worldwide wise Sanju is at No.3.....Fantastic Collection

    1) Sultan: 210cr+
    2) Baahubali 2: 209cr+
    3) Sanju: 202cr+

    Don't want to do any comparison here but to shut some Idiots A*S......Salman is still on Top......Anywise Happy for Sanju.......

  14. According to boi, Monday collection is going to around 25 crore which is same as Monday collection of dangal.
    It is going to beat PK for sure but dangal is very very difficult
    @bollyarena any actor signed new movie?

  15. If a film is excellent, it will not need a holiday to achieve a record breaking box office return. Likewise if it is not good, it will fail regardless of the stars or Holiday release. Many films have proved that including "SANJU". While Ranbir is popular, he could not have achieved such a performance, if the film was not really good. Am looking forward to the Salman Khan / Priyanka Chopra starrer scheduled for EID.

  16. I believe movie will collect 390cr lifetime.

    It will just miss out on 400cr, but still it will be commendable on a no non holiday period

  17. Booked 4 tickets for tomorrow's show . FINALLY I will go n witness the magic of Ranbeer and Hirani..

    I have always said new generation superstar is equivalent to 90s star

    Hrithik - Tiger
    Akshay - Sushant Singh Rajput
    Srk - Ranveer Singh
    Salman - Varun
    N last but not the least he is exactly in the shoes.. Aamir - Ranbeer

  18. This movie and performance stands right up there look at top 10 highest grossers and compare Sanjy is right up there due to acting skills where as others were due to star power, good script and of course Holiday release but Sanju had none of these no star power no script I mean it's a biopic and man it's on non holiday it's a tight sleep for all fighting for a solo release on holidays here on shame on stars man actually for a thriving industry seniors should give chance to New comers and make them release so tht film industry thrives but yeh Tingu,Hakla and chaman only wait for holiday releases shame on u guys chokkre log phad dere tumhari izzat ko...

  19. Are ab to koi Bata do Race 3 ka 3rd weekend collection....... Koi to batao..... Kya Hua Race 3 ka?????........ Hahaha hahahahaha...... Maja aa gaya...... Koi batane Ko he ready Nahi.... Hahaha ha.....
