However, Salman Khan fans left no chance to criticize the film after Race 3 failed to impress everyone and became a butt of jokes on the internet and on IMDB ratings as well. Have a look at their reaction:
#SanjuReview Waste of time, this film will definitely flop. Ranbir is rubbish and the first half is boring.

However, Sanju fans had a reply for them as well:

Well, seems like a Twitter war has been initiated and the Bollywood fans have divided once again. Race 3 starring Salman Khan got lowest ratings on IMDB leaving behind flop films like Akshay Kumar’s Tees Maar Khan. However, it still managed to earn crores of money, all hail the brand name of Salman.
People have really high expectations from Sanju as it is Rajkumar Hirani directorial who has never given a flop. His graph has just witnessed a rise, though he has done just 5 films in his 15 years of career as a director. Moreover, this film can prove to be a game changer for Ranbir Kapoor’s acting career who has given more flops than the hits.
Produced by Vidu Vinod Chopra, ‘Sanju’ stars Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Manisha Koirala. The film is based on the life of Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt.
