Day 2 Box-office: Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff’s ‘War’ garners 74.70 crores


On the second day, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s ‘War’ witnessed a dip. On the second day, ‘War’ has made Rs 23.10 crore nett. In two days, the action oriented movie has earned Rs 74.70 crore. 

Sharing the second-day collections of the film, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on Twitter, “War Hindi: Wed 51.60 cr, Thu 23.10 cr. Total: Rs 74.70 cr. Tamil + Telugu: Wed 1.75 cr, Thu 1.25 cr. Total: Rs 3 cr. Total: Rs 77.70 cr. India biz. War should gather momentum on Day 4 [Sat] and 5 [Sun], thus packing a superb total in its *extended* weekend.”

According to a report in Boxofficeindia, the film reportedly saw a plunge of 55-60%, post a national holiday (Oct 2).

Tweeting the figures, trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote: “#War creates H-I-S-T-O-R-Y... Sets new benchmarks for #Hindi films... Big holiday [#GandhiJayanti] + unprecedented hype results in mind boggling *Day 1* total... Crosses the previous best - #ThugsOfHindostan - by a margin, despite lower screen count.” War has had to face stiff competition in India -- in South, it has had to compete with Chiranjeevi’s Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.

On the opening day, the film has garnered a whopping Rs 53.35 crore. 'War' turned out to be Tiger and Hrithik's first biggest opener ever. 

Released on around 4000 screens in three language (Hindi+ Tamil, Telugu), it also features Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana and Anupriya Goenka in significant roles.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the first day collection of 'War'.
