War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, is on the way to becoming the highest grosser of their careers. The film has collected around Rs 123.60 crore in just four days which is higher than the four-day collections of the second highest Bollywood opening film, Thugs of Hindostan. The Aamir Khan-starrer had collected Rs 119 crore in four days.
It has also beaten Salman Khan’s Bharat, which had collected Rs 122.20 crore in four days. The Hindi version of the film registered a growth of over 30% on Saturday with collections of Rs 27.60 crore.
Sharing the domestic collections of the film, Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “War Hindi: Wed 51.60 cr, Thu 23.10 cr, Fri 21.30 cr, Sat 27.60 cr. Total: Rs 123.60 cr. Tamil + Telugu: Wed 1.75 cr, Thu 1.25 cr, Fri 1.15 cr, Sat 1.10 cr. Total: Rs 5.25 cr. Total: ₹ 128.85 cr. India biz. Should hit ₹ 200 cr in its *extended* Week 1.”
Comparing the film with Bharat, he added, “Bharat - released on Wed [Eid] - hit Rs 150 cr in its 5-day *extended* weekend... The Salman Khan film got the additional push due to Eid festivities in its opening days... War is expected to surpass 5-day *extended* weekend of Bharat by a margin, despite lower screen count.”
Taran had confirmed that the film has crossed the Rs 100 crore mark in all languages domestically. The Hindi version had broken the opening day record of the highest Bollywood grosser Thugs of Hindostan by taking the top slot with collections of Rs 51.60 crore. It went on to collect Rs 23.10 crore on Thursday and Rs 21.30 crore on Friday.
Sharing the benchmarks achieved by the film, Taran had tweeted, “War benchmarks... Fifth #YRF film to cross Rs 100 cr in 3 days, after #Dhoom3, #Sultan, #TZH and #TOH. #Highest grossing *first 3 days* for #HrithikRoshan, #TigerShroff and director #SiddharthAnand. #India biz.”
War has created several new records including the highest Gandhi Jayanti release, highest Navratri release and the highest-grossing first 3 Day for Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff and Siddharth Anand, who is the director of War. This is also the Fifth Yash Raj Films production to have made more than Rs 100 crore in three days, after Dhoom 3, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai and Thugs of Hindostan.
War was released in 4,000 screens with additional 150-200 films from Friday. The film also stars Vaani Kapoor. It had clashed with Telugu film Sye Raa Narsimha Reddy and Hollywood film Joker, which also received a wonderful response from the critics and at the box office.
