Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's WAR has hit the theatres today. The high octane action entertainer seems to have hit the right chord with the audience that is blown away by the superb stunts, groovy songs and incredible chemistry between the two actors. In fact, the film is expected to beat the opening day numbers of Salman Khan - Katrina Kaif's Bharat. It had made Rs 42 crores at the box-office. WAR is expected to take an opening of Rs 45 crore and might just rake in Rs 150 crore at the box office by the weekend. The film has opened to excellent response and the occupancy is around 85 per cent. BollywoodLife spoke to Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff about this buzz of WAR beating the opening day collections of Bharat.
When we told Hrithik Roshan about the prediction, he said, "Ahhh...Great. This is my baby. It is my film, the better it does, the better I will feel." The Greek God of Bollywood further spoke about the hysteria around WAR. He stated, "It was a revelation to all of us. We were not making it to create hysteria. It is happened and it is a good thing. We are happy that people loved the teaser, trailer and songs."
Tiger Shroff told us, "I haven't thought of that (WAR beating Bharat's opening day numbers). More than big numbers, I want people to appreciate our film, not just the spectacle but also the story." Commenting on the mania, he said, "I am very grateful for the love. I know there is pressure and expectation we have to meet upto but then we're very happy with the final product. What people have seen in the trailer is just the tip of the iceberg."
The numbers will be given out by trade experts tomorrow. Some reports suggest that figures maybe at par with Baahubali 2 or Thugs of Hindostan. BollywoodLife in its review wrote, "WAR is that film that is perfect for a mid-week holiday. It has enough to keep you talking about it for the next couple of days. And ladies, if you start fantastising about Hrithik Roshan once again, do not blame us. Those gleaming biceps are lustworthy and how." Stay tuned to BL for more scoops and updates!
