Will Sanju’s phenomenal success help Sanjay Dutt’s upcoming films at the box office? Expert speaks


Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju is doing a record-breaking business at the box office. In just its opening week, the biographical drama has crossed the Rs 200 crore mark at the ticket windows. On the other hand, actor Sanjay Dutt, on whose life Sanju is based on is currently having a rough phase at the box office. Though the positive thing is that Dutt has six films under his kitty which includes Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3, Kalank, Torbaaz, Shamshera, Prasthaanam and Panipat. But will the Sanju effect boost these films business at the box office? We have an answer for you…

As per our trade analyst Akshaye Rathi, Sanju has made Sanjay Dutt more relatable to the audience but it will have a very small effect on his films. He said, “The only advantage Sanjay Dutt as an actor will get now is that lot of people will relate a lot to the man as they know him a lot better as a person compared to what they probably did. Ironically, till now any films featuring Sanjay Dutt has not Rs 200 crore of business till date and a biopic made on his life has done over Rs 200 crore in one week.”

He further explained that the content of Sanjay’s films needs to be relevant to get audience support at the box office. He quoted, “The Sanju factor can only play a small role. So, ultimately the films in which he features have to be entertainers and has to be engaging enough to the audience to work at the box office.” So by listening to our expert opinion, we hope all the upcoming films of Sanjay Dutt has that X-factor which will attract the audience to the theatres.
