New Delhi:

War, starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, is ruling the box office and how. The film, which opened in theaters on Wednesday, has garnered Rs 77.70 crore in merely two days of its release, reports Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film collected a whopping sum of Rs 23.10 crore on Thursday alone. In his tweet, Taran Adarsh stated that the film's performance was not only brilliant on its opening day (which was a National holiday), it was equally impressive on a working day. Taran Adarsh described it as an "achievement" and wrote: "War is super-strong on Day 2 (working day), after the national holiday on Day 1 [Gandhi Jayanti]... Collecting Rs 20 cr+ on a working day - which happens to be Day 2 in this case - is a rarity... An achievement, since most biggies don't score Rs 20 cr on Day 1."

In a separate tweet, Taran Adarsh stated that the film is likely to "gain momentum" over the weekend. The Hindi rendition of the film collected Rs 74.70 crore, while the Tamil and Telugu versions collectively earned Rs 3 crore. "Warshould gather momentum on Day 4 (Sat) and 5 (Sun), thus packing a superb total in its extended weekend," tweeted Taran Adarsh.
