War movie has turned out to be unstoppable at the box office. In the first 9 days, it has made a collection of Rs 238 crores. It stars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in the lead roles, and is directed by Siddharth Anand. The film is enjoying a fantabulous run at the BO.
So far, it has enjoyed a blockbuster first week at the ticket window. To determine its lifetime collections, the second week’s collection will be a crucial factor. It has become the fifth Hindi film to cross the mark of Rs 200 crores in the extended first week. War has become the biggest opener for Hrithik, Tiger, and Yash Raj Films (YRF).
The second week is going to be pivotal. The day-wise break-up of film’s collection is as follows: Wednesday Rs 51.06 cr, Thursday Rs 23.10 cr, Friday Rs 21.30 cr, Saturday Rs 27.60 cr, Sunday Rs 36.10 cr, Monday Rs 20.60 cr, Tuesday Rs 27.75 cr, 2nd Wednesday Rs 11.20 cr, Thursday Rs 9.25 cr.
The film’s total collection so far (in the first 9 days) has been Rs 238.35 cr. The total collection includes the earnings of both Tamil and Telugu as well. The film is the story of a rogue Indian intelligence officer Kabir (Hrithik) who is being hunted by his former mentee Khalid (Tiger). The film features stunning action scenes and gripping chase sequences having been shot across the globe.
Amidst huge competition from Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Hollywood’s Joker, War has turned out to be the most profitable in India. All these three films released on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. This week’s release The Sky Is Pink will happen to affect the progress of War by a few shades.
The Sky Is Pink stars Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, and Zaira Wasim in lead roles. It is the love story of Aditi and Niren Chaudhary, and narrated by their daughter Aisha, who is diagnosed with a Busulfan Lung Damage. It is based on the real life story of motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary, who lost years of her life due to pulmonary fibrosis. Shonali Bose has directed the movie.
Speaking of its 2nd week, War film has retained around 55-60% of the total screens in the first week. It has got the potential of crossing the 300 cr mark. Coming to its 10th day, War has registered an opening occupancy of around 12-13% in the morning shows. Yesterday, it was 11-12%.
The screen count has been reduced from the first week, though the occupancy rate is nearly the same. It simply means a bit reduction in the collection. It can go past Rs 250 cr in the second weekend only. Any drop less than 40% is considered a decent one. We are expecting War to collection close to Rs 5 cr on its second Friday (day 10) at the box office.
