Actors Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff have delivered a multimillion blockbuster with their latest hit, War. After storming through multiple box office milestones, the film will soon leap across the Rs 200 crore mark as well.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted on Tuesday that the film has minted another Rs 20 crore on its first Monday, taking its six days collection to Rs 179.7 crore. The film had released on Wednesday, October 2.

“#War continues to rule... Springs a biggg surprise on Mon - not fourth, but *sixth day* in this case...

The Box Office India report suggests that the film’s Monday collections were helped by the fact that a few regional were observing a Mahanavmi holiday. With Dusshera on Monday, the possibility of War hitting a second century are higher than ever.


On Monday, Adarsh tweeted about the film’s collections, branding it ‘outstanding’. “#War hits the ball out of the park... Sets the BO on (fire) on Day 5 [Sun]...

Is now fifth highest grossing film of 2019... Should surpass *lifetime biz* of #Bharat and #MissionMangal soon,” he added.

He also gave a list of all the important records the film has broken so far. “#War benchmarks...Highest *Day 1* + weekend [#Hindi]. Highest *Day 1* + weekend on a national holiday [#Hindi]. Highest *first Sunday* of 2019 [#Hindi]. Highest *extended* opening weekend for #HrithikRoshan, #TigerShroff and director #SiddharthAnand. #India biz,” he tweeted.
