Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju, a biopic on actor Sanjay Dutt, has posted the biggest opening of this year with Rs 34.75 crore on Day 1.

Before Sanju, Race 3 had the highest opening record this year with net collection of Rs 27.50 crore in Hindi film. And in non-Hindi segment, Avengers Infinity War posted the highest opening with Rs 31 crore. Sanju decimated these records to emerge as the biggest opener of 2018 in India.
