Here are the latest box office figures for War.
The film has the highest grossing extended weekend earnings of 2019, according to trade analysts.
Trade analysts further write that War has crossed the lifetime earnings of Kesari, Total Dhamaal, Saaho (Hindi), Hrithik’s Super 30, Chhichhore and Gully Boy. It is now the fifth highest grossing film of the year and is expected to cross the the box office records set by Bharat and Mission Mangal.
War became the highest-grossing Hindi film ever in India, dethroning YRF’s Thugs of Hindostan. It is now the highest-opening film for both Hrithik and Tiger, and the highest-earning film on a national holiday.
War follows Kabir (Hrithik), an intelligence agent gone rogue and his protege Khalid (Tiger). Officials decide there are no other ways to tackle the problem but to kill Kabir, and employ Khalid for the task. Both actors perform daredevil action stunts during the cat and mouse chase.
It is directed by Siddharth Anand, known for Bang Bang! (2014), Anjaana Anjaani (2010), Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008), and Salaam Namaste (2005).
