Commenting on the book, Dutt said, "I have had the fortune of living a remarkable life, full of ups and downs, joys and sorrows".

They billed the attempt as "perhaps the biggest, most dramatic and honest star memoir to emerge out of Bollywood".

According to a BoxOfficeIndia report, Sanju earned Rs 7.5 crore on the second Wednesday of its release, making a total of Rs 278.58 crore in 12 days.

Udayan Mitra, Publisher - Literary, HarperCollins India, said: "I am absolutely thrilled that we will be bringing out Sanjay Dutt's autobiography in the summer of 2019". I told her I will pick up those documents when I come back.

What makes Sanjay Dutt's journey an epic story, quite apart from his professional accomplishments, are the ebbs and flows that have characterised his life, the publishers said. "I am looking forward to sharing my memories and emotions with readers everywhere", Dutt said.

Sanju depicts the life of Sanjay Dutt right from his younger days to his conviction. Dutt, however, discredited the book by releasing an official statement. Sanjay Dutt disassociated himself from the book after excerpts from it went viral.

"I hope better sense will prevail and there will be no further excerpts that will hurt me or my family". Interestingly, the Rajkumar Hirani directorial has already broken 10 box office records, including those for the highest opener and the highest weekend opener of 2018. With audience and critics alike taking a liking to the film, the business of Sanju is expected to grow by leaps and bounds. "The director is on the top of his game and the actor frequently soars to dizzying heights", he wrote.

Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also stars an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza amongst others.

Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt is now shooting for Prassthanam, which stars Manisha Koirala and Jackie Shroff. Sanjay Dutt also has Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3, Kalank, Panipat and Torbaaz in the pipeline.
