Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's War is on fire! The film, which opened in theatres on Gandhi Jayanti, crossed the Rs 150 crore mark on Monday, reported Bollywood trade analyst Taran Adarsh. With the latest earnings, the overall collections of the film have reached Rs 166.25 crore. War surpassed the lifetime collections of Kesari, Gully Boy, Saaho and Super 30 and now holds the position of "fifth highest grossing film of 2019," reported Taran Adarsh. The film might also cross the lifetime earnings of Salman Khan's Bharat and Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal.

Emerges the highest grossing *extended* weekend of 2019... East, West, North, South, War packs a solid punch."
