The film opened in almost 4000 screens in India. War is already running with the title of the highest first-day collections for a Hindi film. It is also the biggest opener for a film on a national holiday, and Hrithik Roshan’s highest first day opening ever.
The Tamil and Telugu versions of War saw a dip due to the clash with Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy. The Telugu period drama also earned about ₹ 2 crores on its first day. War is the third-highest opening film in India behind Baahubali 2 and Avengers: Endgame. War has also beaten the record held by Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan. It seems that War could have reached the ₹ 55 crores mark if it was not for the previous week’s releases including Hollywood's Joker and Sye Raa Narsimha Reddy.
War has been one of the most anticipated movies of 2019. The actors followed an off-screen rivalry technique to promote the film. This built up a lot of excitement amongst the audience. Hrithik and Tiger have been pitted against each other in the film. It looks like fans already picked up their sides before its release.
War also stars Vaani Kapoor in an important role. The film is also Bang Bang! director Siddharth Anand's second collaboration with Hrithik. War follows the story of a mentor and protegee who turn against each other but then come together for a national mission. War is expected to earn more over the weekend.
