The Siddharth Anand directed film War released yesterday after much fanfare and hype. Starring Tiger Shroff and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles, War has been one of the most talked about and keenly anticipated releases. Given this fact, the makers of the film Yash Raj Films left no stone unturned to ensure its box office success. In fact, advance bookings for the film opened five days before its release, with the makers opting for a wide release across 4000 screens in India.
In this box office analysis we take a look at the opening day collections of War while comparing the same to Tiger Shroff’s previous releases. Not surprisingly, War that raked in Rs. 53.35 cr on Day 1 has managed to beat Tiger’s previous release Baaghi 2 that had collected Rs. 25.1 cr to emerge as the actor’s highest opening day grosser. If that wasn’t enough, the opening day business of War has seen considerably better collections than Tiger’s previous releases like Student of the Year 2 that collected Rs. 12.06 cr, Baaghi that collected Rs. 11.94 cr, A Flying Jatt that collected Rs. 7.1 cr, Munna Michael that collected Rs. 6.65 cr, and Heropanti that had collected Rs. 6.63 cr.
Currently, War that released on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti enjoys not just a wide screen count and good rate of advance bookings, but also an extended weekend. In fact, predictions state that the film will not only cross the Rs. 100 cr mark in the next few days, but will also eventually emerge as Tiger Shroff’s highest grossing film.
