Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s action-thriller, War, is continuing its dream run at the box office on its 14th day. The Siddharth Anand directorial has minted a staggering Rs 280.60 crore ever since its release on October 2. Surpassing the box office collection of Shahid Kapoor starrer Kabir Singh, it has become the highest earner of 2019.
Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “#War surpasses *lifetime biz* of #KabirSingh… Now highest grossing film of 2019… [#Hindi; Week 2] Fri 7.10 cr, Sat 11.20 cr, Sun 13.20 cr, Mon 4.40 cr, Tue 3.90 cr. Total: ₹ 268.30 cr. Including #Tamil + #Telugu: ₹ 280.60 cr. #India biz.”
War has set various other benchmarks in Bollywood. In his another tweet, Taran Adarsh mentioned, “Top 5 *highest grossing* #Hindi films – 2019 releases…
1. #War [still running]
Note: As on 15 Oct 2019.”
Apart from Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, War also stars Ashutosh Rana, Vaani Kapoor and Anupriya Goenka in supporting roles. The film was released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously.
“#War emerges 10th highest grossing #Hindi film… 1. #Baahubali2 [#Hindi], 2. #Dangal, 3. #Sanju, 4. #PK, 5. #TigerZindaHai, 6. #BajrangiBhaijaan, 7. #Padmaavat, 8. #Sultan, 9. #Dhoom3, 10. #War… #KabirSingh moves to the 11th position, while #Uri is on 12th. #India biz,” shared Taran Adarsh.
War has lived up to the audience’s expectations. Though The Indian Express’ Shubhra Gupta gave the film 2 stars out of 5, she praised Hrithik Roshan’s performance and look in the film. In her review, she wrote, “The last time Hrithik looked as sexy, was in Dhoom 2 (2006), also a Yashraj film. The golden streaks have been replaced with a bit of grey at the temples, but the bronzed cheekbones decorated with a few fetching scars, the fighting-fit figure in fatigues-and-dark-glasses and the case-hardened look, is full eye-candy. I’m not revealing anything by telling you that War looks all set to be a franchise: next time maybe go complete comic-book silly? Now that’s a spy I will buy.”.
