Trade analyst and film critic Taran Adrash said in the upcoming week, War could easily do Rs 200 crore worth of box office business, owing to Dusshera holiday and festival time. He said that War could also defeat Salman Khan's Bharat in terms of the opening weekend collections by a significant margin; Bharat was also released on an extended weekend on June 5 (Eid holiday).
#Bharat - released on Wed [#Eid] - hit 150 cr in its 5-day *extended* weekend... The #SalmanKhan film got the additional push due to #Eid festivities in its opening days... #War is expected to surpass 5-day *extended* weekend of #Bharat by a margin, despite lower screen count.taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) October 6, 2019
Helmed by Siddarth Anand, War is the fifth film of Yash Raj production house to cross the Rs 100 crore mark within first-three days of release, followed by Dhoom 3, Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai. Considering its earnings, War can easily be assumed a hit. It could also be the highest grosser of both the actors in the days to come. Hrithik Roshan's highest earner is Krrish 3, which made a lifetime collection of Rs 175 crore, while Tiger Shroff's biggest hit is Baaghi 2 with a box office collection of Rs 160 crore.
War is the highest opening day grosser of both Roshan and Shroff's career. Released on Gandhi Jayanti in 4,000 screens in India, film War has also become the biggest opener on a national holiday in India. War, which carries a price tag of nearly Rs 200 crore, is the first Bollywood cinema to be shot in the Arctic Circle. The film also stars Ashutosh Rana and Vaani Kapoor in significant roles.
