Sanju has become the highest grossing Hindi movie on a non-holiday Monday. The biopic of actor Sanjay Dutt has once again proved that content is the king and that star power or a holiday release don't matter. The audience will embrace a movie if it has a fresh, creative and interesting story and screenplay.
Sumit Kadel tweeted, "#Baahubali2 #Padmaavat & now #Sanju proved that festival release is not the only important factor for huge collections. Big stars should concentrate on content & universal appealing films more. Solo release on any given day will provide their films mammoth opening at the BO."
