Check out trade analyst Taran Adarsh's tweet here:

"#Sanju creates H-I-S-T-O-R-Y... Records HIGHEST SINGLE DAY for a HINDI film... DEMOLISHES the record held by #Baahubali2 [Hindi]... #Baahubali2 had collected ₹ 46.50 cr on Day 3 [Sun]… #Sanju has surpassed it, collects ₹ 46.71 cr on Day 3 [Sun]. India biz. Boxoffice on (sic)."

Prabhas' Baahubali: The Conclusion was the second half of SS Rajamouli's two-part magnum opus Baahubali, which began with Baahubali: The Beginning. The film, which released on April 28, 2017, is first Indian film to mint over Rs 1500 crores at the worldwide Box Office. The Hindi version of the film distributed by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions had held the top spot at the Box Office for the highest single day collection for a Hindi film until yesterday.

The film produced by Shobu Yarlagadda also starred Telugu hunk Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Nasser, Sathyaraj and Ramya Krishnan.

Coming back to Sanju, Ranbir has delivered one the finest performances so far. The Kapoor lad has proved that he is here to play long innings. He may have had a string of flops but that won't stop him from conquering hearts. 

The 35-year-old has Brahmastra, Ayan Mukerji's trilogy and Karan Johar's Shamshera in the pipeline.
