His fans took to the comments section to say how they loved his portrayal. One user said: “You are so so good in this film.” Another fan wrote: “And two years of crushing over Vicky Kaushal!” Lots of fans of the film also wrote in. One said: “Best movie.. Best performances.” Yet another said: “What a movie it was.”
Dia Mirza took recalled the film and spoke fondly of it. She said: “Will be forever grateful for the trust, the love and joy this team gave me. Thank you.”
When Sanju released in 2018, masses loved it but it evoked sharp response from critics. While performances were rewarded, the film was panned. Hindustan Times’ review had this to say about the film: “Sanju is another gem in Ranbir Kapoor’s repertoire, but the same can’t be said about Rajkumar Hirani. Sanju is watchable but a very average fare.”
Sanju, however, turned out to be a mega success story, bringing in more than Rs 300 crore in domestic market alone. It remains Ranbir’s highest grosser. A biopic on Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, Sanju starred Ranbir in the titular role with Vicky, Dia, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal and Sonam Kapoor in supporting roles.
