War box office collection day 5: There is no stopping Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War! The film which released on Gandhi Jayanti has taken full advantage of the extended weekend, minting a whopping Rs 165 crore in the first five days. War had an outstanding Sunday where it earned Rs 36 crore and is showing signs of becoming the biggest film of 2019 so far. The official fifth day collection is yet to be out but film trade analyst, critic and influencer Sumit Kadel believes that it is expected to be around the mentioned mark.
"#WAR Sunday- ₹ 36 cr nett approx. First 5 days Weekend total stands HUGE ₹ 165 cr," he tweeted. The film is unlikely to slow down any time soon as it has another massive opportunity in the form of Dussehra 2019 which falls on Tuesday. The holiday should further boost the box office collections of War, allowing it to continue the momentum.
Interestingly, Kadel had predicted Rs 160 crore extended weekend for War when the trailer of the film was released. He recently retweeted an old tweet where he had made the claim. "#WarTrailer created tremendous buzz among trade and audience. Curiosity for the film has been multiplied. Lifetime collection depends on the merits & quality but i am assure of one thing that #WAR 5 days weekend would not be less than ₹ 160-170 crs nett," the tweet read.
