The real Sanju baba, who had refused to watch the film before its release, has finally watched his own biopic a few days ago at a special screening along with Hirani and Kapoor.
Now director Rajkumar Hirani also showed support to Ranbir Kapoor's remark and said that if Sanju himself has played that role then it would have stolen all the charm of the character. After the first shows of the film ended, Sanju was said to have received the third-best opening of the year, but now, as per the Box Office India report, the film might get the biggest opening. According to The Indian Express, some internet users shared screenshots of downloadable torrents. The movie reviews have been more than pleasing with many critics saying Ranbir is absolutely believable as Sanjay Dutt.
After Salman Khan's Race 3, Sanju is the second movie to be rolled out in the highest number of screens.
Paresh Rawal plays the character of Sanjay Dutt's father Sunil Dutt. "We never got a chance to work together again until Sanju".
