The movie War, which released on October 2, was the biggest-ever box-office opening in the history of Hindi cinema. With this, it was also the biggest opening for both the stars in their careers to date. With the movie doing so well at the box office as well as getting positive fan reactions, let’s look at the real war of #teamhrithik and #teamtiger. These hashtags were started by the stars to promote the film, but fans went in a frenzy to support their favourite stars.
The two hashtags attracted a lot of buzz, and fans took to social media to share posts with the hashtag. Fans made t-shirts for the movie with the hashtag written on it. They also danced on the songs from the movie at the theatre and shared a lot of posts with the hashtag. Here's a look at some of the fan-reactions on Twitter:
Tiger Shroff fans also had a similar take on the hashtag. They also shared pictures on social media sites. T-shirts were made by Tiger fans also. In some pictures, we can see Tiger Shroff posing with his fans. Taking off from this social media rivalry among fans: Is it #TeamTiger or #TeamHrithik who wins bigger at the box-office? Let's look at Hrithik Roshan’s and Tiger Shroff’s previous box-office collections and check who was the winner before War was released.
Before War released, Hrithik’s biggest day-one earing movie was Bang Bang, an action flick. The movie was released on October 2, 2014. It earned a total of ₹ 27 crores on day one. Tiger Shroff’s biggest day-one earing movie was Baaghi 2, also an action flick. The movie was released on March 30, 2018. It earned a total of ₹ 25 crores on day one. So, the clear answer would be that #TeamHrithik is ahead in terms of a neck-to-neck. As of right now, War is also the biggest blockbuster in terms of day-one earing. It overtook the records created by Marvel’s Avengers Endgame and Thugs Of Hindostan, making it the biggest box office opening this year. This goes to show that fans were super excited to the duo on the screen.
