Noted film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to announce the latest feat of the film. He wrote that War has clocked over Rs 300 crore. He also added, “2019 has been a fantastic year for Bollywood and the super success of War reiterates the fact that well made biggies – targeted at PAN India audience – will always be embraced warmly by the paying public… Expecting YRF to green-light War2 soon.”

Taran went on to add, “Also, they pave way for mid-range and metro-centric films, in the process… The biggies cultivate/foster the cinema-going habit, which is pivotal these days, since the digital medium is strengthening its roots in India. Tent pole/event/big ticket films are a must… They get the numbers… They drive the audience to movie halls… They contribute to ticket sales and footfalls… They infuse confidence in the financial sector.”

War, which opened to earth-shattering numbers of Rs 51.60 crore on the day of its release, is also the third Yash Raj Films to cross Rs 300 crore plus net box-office collection after Sultan (2016) and Tiger Zinda Hai (2017). Rumours are rife that producer Aditya Chopra has decided to turn War into a franchise. Hrithik Roshan is expected to be retained in the next instalments of the series. However, there is no official confirmation on the same. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand.
