Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War released on 2nd October 2019. The film as expected took a flying start at the box office in India and went on to collect Rs 53.35 crore (Hindi: 51.60 Cr and Tamil & Telugu: 1.75 Cr) on its first day. The film has broken many records and it has received the biggest opening in the history of Bollywood.
The Siddharth Anand directorial has also received positive reviews and people are loving Hrithik and Tiger’s performance in the film. Well, of course, both the actors are overwhelmed with the response their film has received.
Talking about it, Hrithik said, “It is an incredible response to our hard work and I’m truly grateful to the audiences for loving our film. When we decided to make War, we were clear that we were attempting to do something that has never been done in Indian cinema and we went all out to make it happen. So, it’s hugely validating to see the fantastic response of the people enjoying our action entertainer in the theatres. As an actor, you live and thrive for such moments and I’m truly blessed that our film is getting such overwhelming love. I congratulate my partner in crime Tiger, my director Sid, YRF for its belief and the incredible effort to make this film spectacular, Vaani and everyone associated with this film at this incredible moment. The entire team worked really really hard on War and it’s amazing to see this kind of euphoria around our movie.”

Tiger added, “I’m touched by the fantastic response that our film has been getting from audiences across India. I have no words to describe what I’m feeling right now except that I feel blessed to be getting this love and appreciation from people. I have always wanted my films to be out and out entertainers, films that make people happy in theatres and I’m glad that WAR has become that film. I feel blessed to have this opportunity to work side by side with Hrithik who has been my hero and idol. Just this opportunity is a victory in itself for me. I would like to thank and congratulate Aditya Chopra, Hrithik sir, my director Sid, YRF for going all guns blazing to make this a spectacle, Vaani and every single person associated with this film. This has truly been an incredible team effort.”
Well, reportedly, YRF is planning to make War a franchise just like their Dhoom franchise. After such a big start, now let’s see how the film will perform at the box office in the coming days. Will it be able to beat Kabir Singh and become the highest-grossing film of the year? Let’s wait and watch.
