Yesterday, the highly anticipated movie War featuring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff directed by Siddharth Anand and with Vaani Kapoor in a prominent role, was released on a grand scale with more than 4000 screens available in the Indian market. The immense popularity that the movie achieved prior to its release, thanks to its advance booking 5 days before launch day, meant that War is set for a remarkable opening.
War’s extraordinary success on its opening day, having grossed a mammoth Rs. 53.35 cr, has catapulted it to second place on the list of all-time single day collections – taking the spot from Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan that recorded Rs. 52.25 cr and Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju with Rs. 46.71 cr earned on its third day in theatres.
Aside from Thugs of Hindostan and Sanju, War featuring the powerhouse duo of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, recorded a single-day collection that was higher than several notable releases such as Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion with Rs. 46.50 cr on its third day; Tiger Zinda Hai (Rs. 45.53 cr on Day 3); Happy New Year (Rs. 45.53 cr on Day 1); Dangal (Rs. 42.41 cr on Day 3); Bharat (Rs. 42.30 cr on Day 1); and the first two days of Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion’s run at Rs 41cr and Rs 40.50 cr respectively.
War is anticipated to become the leader at the box office as there are no significant contenders. The film is predicted to bring a surge of business during this long five day weekend, showcasing its extraordinary potential.
