Sanju will be the second film to have its revenue collections tracked by this firm, with the first being Aamir Khan's PK, which released in 2014. However, several posts on social media suggest that the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer has been leaked online.
Hirani, who was given a free hand to verify and turn Sanjay Dutt's controversial life into a screenplay, was jittery before the screening could begin. According to The Indian Express, some internet users shared screenshots of downloadable torrents. In this interview with NDTV.com, Hirani revealed that after watching the film Sanjay Dutt broke down.
After Salman Khan's Race 3, Sanju is the second movie to be rolled out in the highest number of screens. Paresh Rawal stars as Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis, Sonam Kapoor as one of his girlfriends, Anushka Sharma plays a biographer, Dia Mirza stars as Maanyata and Vicky Kaushal as Sanjay Dutt's childhood friend.
Sanju has been gaining popularity ever since all of us got wind of the movie being made.
Talking about the movie, Ranbir had said, the film was not a propaganda, there was merit in the story and a lot of learning.
