And this is War's weekly score card:
War released 10 days before The Sky Is Pink, Priyanka Chopra's first Hindi film in three years. However, the former destroyed the Shonali Bose-directed film at the ticket window as it refused to slow down. War, which is directed by Siddharth Anand, is expected to cross the Rs 300 crore-mark at the domestic box office too. It's target is a mere Rs 12 crore.
Speaking about the film's success, Siddharth Anand told news agency IANS, "We wanted to give India its biggest action spectacle and we are proud to have achieved that. People have appreciated our vision to create something new and have showered so much love on War. It is the incredible word of mouth that has made War a must watch film this festive season and we couldn't be more thankful."
War is one-of-its-kind two-hero action film with thrilling action sequences shot all over the world. Apart from Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, War also features Anupriya Goenka and Vaani Kapoor.
