War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, has crossed the Rs 100 cross mark at the box office on Saturday. The film, which opened at a record-breaking Rs 51.60 crore has collected Rs 96 crore in three days in the Hindi version.

The film collected Rs 21.30 crore on its third day. It is expected to show immense growth during the extended weekend which includes a Dussehra holiday on Tuesday.

Hrithik and Tiger have collaborated for the first time and, following the hype surrounding the film, the makers have added 200 screens for War.

 

Directed by Siddharth Anand, the film was massively aided by a holiday release on Gandhi Jayanti amid positive reviews. War is now the biggest Bollywood opener of all time after beating Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan by almost Rs 1 crore.

Asked if War would have a sequel, director Siddharth said, “It’s too early to talk about it, but I definitely had an idea to convert this into a franchise. We were waiting for the audience reaction to the film. Now, I am feeling that it’s an audience demand more than our desire. We will soon sit together to decide our future course of action.”

Talking about collaborating with Hrithik in War, Tiger said during the success bash on Friday, “I feel War is really special film for me because he is somebody I look up to so, it was easy in a way to relate to my character, because my character looks up to his character in the film as well. It was a genuine feeling for me.”

With a screen count of 4,000 including Hindi, Tamil and Telugu prints, War is doing well in South India too, despite stiff competition from Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The film had opened worldwide at around Rs 82 crore.

Meanwhile, Hollywood film Joker is also performing well at the box office. The film reportedly collected around Rs 4.25 on Friday, taking its total collections to an approximate Rs 13.75 crore.
