New Delhi: 'War', the Yash Raj Films blockbuster, has set the box office on fire. The Hrithik Roshan- and Tiger Shroff-starrer has crossed the ₹300-crore mark and become this year's highest grosser.
Film critic and analyst Taran Adarsh shared the movie poster on Twitter quoting "Abki baar 300 paar... #War hits triple century."
On its opening day, the action flick minted ₹51.60 crore, followed by ₹23.10 crore on the second day.
'War' has created seven new records including one for a Gandhi Jayanti release, a film released in Navratri and the highest-grossing first 3-day for Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, and Siddharth Anand, who is the director.
'War' is also the fifth Yash Raj Films to cross ₹100-crore plus net box-office collection over the third day after 'Dhoom 3', 'Sultan', 'Tiger Zinda Hai' and 'Thugs of Hindostan'.
"It has been simply phenomenal to receive this kind of love and adulation from audiences. 'War' was made with the hope to give India its biggest original action spectacle and the entire team is ecstatic to get the desired result at the box office," Siddharth said.
"When you have two of the biggest action superstars in your film, you would want your film to over deliver on audience expectations and make a big statement. We are overwhelmed that 'War' has become a must-watch film for the entire country. It is a moment to treasure and celebrate for all of us," he added.
