Sanju 1st Day Box Office Collection: Ranbir Kapoor's Sanju has a huge opening day. As per the official figures, the film collected 34.75 crores on day 1.
There was a huge buzz and hype around the film before the release thus the numbers are not unexpected. It had an excellent start in the morning shows with an occupancy of 45-50%. However, it witnessed an upward trend in the evening shows and there was big growth in places. This has enabled the film to collect a huge number despite not having a number opening.
It is the highest opening for a non-Khan film beating Ajay Devgn's Golmaal Again and Hrithik Roshan's Bang Bang. The film has also easily recorded the highest opening day of 2018 beating Race 3 and Avengers Infinity War. Race 3 was released during pre-Eid period so the collections were affected at some places. While Hollywood's Avengers Infinity War was released in less number of screens as compared to Sanju.
Sanju is likely to cross the 100 crores mark in the opening weekend. Avengers Infinity War could not show growth over the weekend as it had capacity problems. But Sanju has still potential to pick up as single screens and masses had only good to decent start.
