Will Sanju Have a Sequel?

Written by Varsha Pillai

Sanju is undoubtedly set to be one of this year’s most successful movies at the box-office. At the 2nd week, the movie has already made 294 crores and is all set to join the 300-crore club. With the monumental success the movie has amassed, the question that is there on everyone’s mind is that whether Sanju will have a sequel.

After the release of the film, viewers have highlighted that the movie has not covered certain crucial portions of the actor’s life. The writer Abhijat Joshi had earlier shared that the filmmakers have barely used 150-page material from the life of Sanjay Dutt, out of over 750 materials from the actor’s life.

According to media reports, Sanjay Dutt broke down after watching his own biopic and hugged Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkumar Hirani, post which he told Hirani that a sequel needs to be made as he has many more stories to tell. Rajkumar Hirani replied that a sequel cannot be made as a person can only have one biopic.

While the movie is ruling the box-office, allegations have been made against the movie makers that the movie is a ’propaganda’ movie set to whitewash Sanjay Dutt’s public image. Sanjay Dutt said:

“I just want to say that Munna Bhai was already made, that avatar was already out. I don’t think anyone would spend Rs 30-40 crore to change his image. That is too much of an amount. I have told the truth and the truth has been accepted by India, and the box office collection shows that.”
