War has thus become the highest-grossing Hindi film in its opening week. It is the fifth Hindi film to surpass Rs 200 crore mark in its first week, after Sultan, Baahubali 2, Tiger Zinda Hai, and Sanju. It has also become the highest-earning film of 2019 in its first week, followed by  Bharat, Kabir SinghMission Mangal, and Saaho.

It is also the highest-opening film for both Hrithik and Tiger, and the highest-earning film on a national holiday. It is also the highest-grossing film for director Siddharth Anand.
