WAR Box Office Collection Day 1: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s ‘War’, released on Gandhi Jayanti holiday, destroyed all the box office records. The film has a banging opening. Trade experts claim that the film has become the biggest opening film of 2019.
War has been included in those films of the year 2019, which are expected to make a big blast from day one. Ever since the trailer of this Yash Raj banner trailer, trade experts started to think that War could create new records at the box office and when the film was released, the audience turned these hopes of trade into reality.
Trade experts have an initial estimate that War has taken an opening of about 50 crores. The final figure is yet to come, but it may be shocking. Gandhi Jayanti holiday got the film and the audience broke into theaters. War has demolished Salman Khan’s record for India’s biggest opening collection in 2019, which was released on Eid and collected 42.30 crores on the first day. With this, War has come second in the list of Bollywood’s most opening collection films. The first place in this list is Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan, which collected 50.75 crores on the first day.
After the final figures are released, War is likely to seize his position from the Thugs of Hindostan. In third place is Shah Rukh Khan’s Happy New Year, which earned 44.97 crores on the first day. In fifth place is Bahubali2- The Conclusion (Hindi), which took an opening of 41 crores. Currently, all Time Top 5 Opening Day Collections are as follows-
- Thugs of Hindostan – 50.75 crores
- War – 50 crores
- Happy New Year – 44.97 Crore
- India- 42.30 crores
- Bahubali: The Conclusion – 41 crores
War directed by Siddharth Anand is originally an action-thriller film, but it also has a strong temper of suspense. This is the reason why Hrithik and Tiger had issued a Twitter appeal before the film’s release that viewers should not give any spoilers after watching the film, i.e. Twists and Turns should not be told to anyone so that the rest of the audience is not spoiled.
Vaani Kapoor played the female lead role with Hrithik and Tiger in the film, who returned to the big screen after a long time. Vaani’s Hot Andaz made this action-thriller film glamorous. War also holds the record for advance booking sale of tickets. According to trade experts, the film has raised more than 25 crores through advance booking.

‘War’ 1st day net all-India total collection could be Rs. 48-49 crore. Although released on about 1,000 screens less than ‘Thugs Of Hindostan’, and despite opposition of ‘Syeraa’ and ‘Joker’, it has opened phenomenally well. It just… just could be the biggest Hindi film opening
