Trade analysts write War has become Yash Raj Films' (YRF) fifth film to cross the Rs 100-crore mark within three days of its release, after Dhoom 3, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Thugs of Hindostan.

The film, which made Rs 77.7 crore in its first two days, earned Rs 21.3 crore in Hindi, and Rs 1.15 crore in Tamil and Telugu on Friday, thus taking the three-day collection to Rs 100.15 crore

War recorded the highest opening for a film in 2019, surpassing Bharat, Mission MangalSaaho, and Kalank. War became the highest-grossing Hindi film ever in India, dethroning YRF's Thugs of Hindostan. It is now the highest-opening film for both Hrithik and Tiger, and the highest-earning film on a national holiday.

It was previously reported the film had sold 4.05 lakh tickets in major multiplexes before its release, beating the pre-release figures of many such big-budget features.

War follows Kabir (Hrithik), an intelligence agent gone rogue and his protege Khalid (Tiger). Officials decide there are no other ways to tackle the problem but to kill Kabir, and employ Khalid for the task. Both actors perform daredevil action stunts during the cat and mouse chase.

It is directed by Siddharth Anand, known for Bang Bang! (2014), Anjaana Anjaani (2010), Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008), and Salaam Namaste (2005).
