On its way to Rs 245 crore, War made several box office records. It now holds the highest opening day record beating Aamir Khan's 2018 film Thugs Of Hindostan. It is also the fastest Bollywood film to hit the Rs 200 crore jackpot in 2019. The Yash Raj Films-backed project is definitely rolling in crores. Speaking of the film's success, Hrithik Roshan earlier told IANS, "I felt more encouraged after the success. It is an important success for me. My instincts were very strong and if it would have failed, then I would have been affected. The most important thing for us in creative life is to be able to trust our instincts and if your instincts gets reaffirmed and gets strengthened, it empowers you a lot."
War opened in theatres along with Chiranjeevi's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Hollywood biggie Joker. This week's new film The Sky Is Pink, headlined by Priyanka Chopra, also did not dampen the box office trend of War.
