Sanju had an excellent hold on Monday dropping just 27% from Friday as it collected 25 crore nett apprx. This takes the four day total to a huge 144.50 crore nett and the 200 crore nett mark will be crossed in seven days. The highest first week outside Bahubali - The Conclusion is Sultan at 209 crore nett and that could be beaten by Sanju.
The multiplex ticket rates were dropped from weekend rates which should mean the major drop is baked into the film on Monday and the weekdays should hold very strong from here on. The ticket rates are still at higher level that the normal weekday rate but not at weekend rates.
The collections of Sanju for the first weekend are as follows
Friday - 34,19,00,000
Saturday - 38,41,00,000
Sunday - 46,73,00,000
Monday - 25,00,00,000 apprx
TOTAL - 1,44,33,00,000 apprx
The film has chances to beat Dangal and become the highest grosser for the Hindi film industry. Bahubali - The Conclusion is the highest grosser ever but that is out of the equation.
Dangal had a similar Monday but its was an Xmas release and had a open run for many weeks. Sanju is a non holiday release but the run is pretty clear with no real big releases. There are a few films but no big star cast film till Gold in mid Aug so Sanju is sure to stay in theatres till then with good screenings.
The second Friday will give an idea as to where this huge BLOCKBUSTER is going.
