After beating the lifetime business of blockbusters like Kesari, Total Dhamaal, Saaho, Chhichhore, Super 30 and Gully Boy to emerge as the fifth highest-grossing film of 2019, War has now crossed the lifetime business of Bharat. War was the big Gandhi Jayanti release this year and now that it has entered its first weekend, the collections are expected to show a tremendous jump. The film is studded with larger-than-life action scenes and the stunning presence of two of the most loved action superstars of the country. It is also the biggest action entertainer coming from YRF. The film, which also features Vaani Kapoor, set many records for its team on the first day itself. It has already emerged as the biggest opener for Hrithik and Tiger apart from the director and the production house.
War has been appreciated for its never-seen-before action sequences that have been shot at rare locations in the world. The film’s look has been taken at par with the Hollywood-styled action drama.
