Rajkumar Hirani Thanks Fans For Alerting Him About Sanju’s Online Leak

Rajkumar Hirani says all's well between Sanjay and Ranbir

Director Rajkumar Hirani has thanked his fans for watching Sanju in the theatres, instead of watching a pirated version of it and for bringing to his notice a leaked copy of the Sanjay Dutt biopic which was being circulated online.


In the Facebook post, Hirani stated: “To all of you, who alerted us about the leaked copy of our film on Facebook. We discovered that some camera copy of our film Sanju was leaked on Facebook. While this was shocking, it was heartening to see that thousands of you refused to watch the film illegally, Instead, you reached out and drew our attention to the problem. We could manage to get it deleted with help from Facebook. Have to say that you all are exceptional human beings. You have the empathy to understand the sweat, blood and tears that got into making a movie and you have the strength to awaken the conscience of others by requesting them not to view it. Your love for Cinema motivates us to keep going. My most heartfelt thanks for speaking up. Thank you!”

Apart from Ranbir Kapoor who plays the titular character, the film also stars Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt, Manisha Koirala as Nargis Dutt, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh and Boman Irani. While film critics have panned the film for sanitising the facts, Bollywood can’t stop raving about the film.

With Rs 118 crores as the first weekend collection, Sanju is now filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s highest weekend opener, second only to PK that earned Rs 93.82 crore. So far, the biopic has raked in Rs 120.06 crores.
