The film besides Ranbir had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ansuhka Sharma and Fawad Khan. Jagga Jassos  along with katrina Kaif released in 2017 was a disaster

His rival Ranveer Singh had raced away from him with Blockbusters like Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat. The pressure was on Ranbir to live up to his billing as the next superstar in the making. Ranbir was desperate for Big hit and “Sanju” could not have come at a right time.
