Director Hirani kept special screening of “Sanju” which was attended by several Bollywood celebrities including Sanjay Dutt, Manyata Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and several others. After watching the movie, Sanjay Dutt couldn’t control himself and hugged the director and Ranbir while crying.
Other celebrities also took to social media to praise the movie and it’s indeed the power of word of mouth that the flick has been performing so well even on weekdays.
Taking the current figures into consideration, there seems to be no stopping for “Sanju” and it might easily enter 200 crore club this week only. What do you say?
