War has witnessed the maximum footfall at the box office, and as per trade experts, the hype over the film would continue until Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 hit the screens on October 26. War is directed by Siddarth Anand, and it also features Vaani Kapoor in a pivotal role. For the first time, Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan are being seen together in a movie. War is said to have some jaw-dropping action-sequences between Shroff and Roshan, which have been choreographed by Paul Jennings and Jack Reacher who worked in The Dark Knight and Game of Thrones.
