Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff-starrer War is on a rampage at the ticket windows. The action thriller earned Rs 36.10 crore on Sunday, taking War’s total box office collection to Rs 159.7 crore in Hindi and Rs 166.25 crore including Tamil and Telugu.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the numbers, “War #Hindi: Wed 51.60 cr, Thu 23.10 cr, Fri 21.30 cr, Sat 27.60 cr, Sun 36.10 cr. Total: ₹ 159.70 cr. #Tamil + #Telugu: Wed 1.75 cr, Thu 1.25 cr, Fri 1.15 cr, Sat 1.10 cr, Sun 1.30 cr. Total: ₹ 6.55 cr. Total: ₹ 166.25 cr #India biz.”

 

 

 

He went on to reveal that War is now the highest grossing film over an extended weekend this year as well as the highest first day earner of 2019. “War hits the ball out of the park... Sets the BO on fire on Day 5 [Sun]... Emerges the highest grossing *extended* weekend of 2019... East, West, North, South, #War packs a solid punch,” he wrote, adding, “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 also spoke of films that War managed to eclipse. “War - in just 5 days - crosses *lifetime biz* of #Kesari, #TotalDhamaal, #Saaho [#Hindi version], #Chhichhore, #Super30 and #GullyBoy... Is now fifth highest grossing film of 2019... Should surpass *lifetime biz* of #Bharat and #MissionMangal soon.”

War is an action-led presentation from the YRF stable. The film’s posters, teasers and trailer had been received well by fans. The film pits Hrithik and Tiger against each other and the two play commandos. Hrithik’s character goes rogue and hence, Tiger is sent to neutralize him. Actor Vaani Kapoor adds glamour to the film.

Both Hrithik and Tiger have had a successful run at the box office of late. Hrithik’s underdog take, Super 30, which released earlier this year, has minted a good collection and told the story of Anand Kumar, a Bihar-based math wizard who helped children from under privileged sections crack the elite IIT entrance examinations. Tiger’s film, Student of the Year 2, though, was not as successful at the first film of the franchise but was still a hit.
