Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanjay Dutt biopic, Sanju has turned out to be much bigger than expected. The box-office numbers are going through the roof, with taking no name of slowing down. The distributors and exhibitors are in a jubilant mood too.

Anticipating the massive response for Sanju no Hindi film was lined up for release this week. The real casualties of the spectacular Sanju success are the Hollywood films that were lined up for release including Wes Anderson’s highly-rated Isle Of Dogs and the star-studded action thriller Sicario Day Of The Soldado.

Says a spokesperson of a leading multiplex chain, “We’re getting massive footfalls for Sanju in the first week, even post the weekend it hasn’t slowed down. The numbers are much higher than Race 3 and even higher than Padmaavat. Why should we remove shows of Sanju for Hollywood films in English which no one will watch anyway? In fact we are worried about the big Hindi releases in July like Shaad Ali’s Soorma and Karan Johar’s Dhadak. Sanju will not slow down in a couple of weeks. It is going to be at the top for some weeks now.”

Have you watched Sanju yet? What did you think about the film?
