War movie box office collection Day 1: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War has created history at the box office by emerging as the biggest opener of 2019. The film is doing exceptionally well across markets.
War movie box office collection Day 1: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War has received a rave response from the moviegoers on opening day at the box office. Even though the official figures are yet to be out, the Hindi version of the film has alone minted around Rs 50 crore on first day. Trade analyst Sumit Kadel said that it is a historic collection as War had released on 800 lesser screens than Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan. In August, Kadel had predicted that the film should earn around Rs 48 crore to Rs 50 crore on the day of release. "#WAR Day-1 ₹ 50 cr nett approx. Cheetey ki chaal, baaz ki nazar aur Sumit kadel k prediction pe sandeh nahi karte.. HISTORIC COLLECTION despite 800-1000 lesser screens than Thugs," he tweeted.
According to the Box Office India website, War Box Office Collection Day 1 is Rs 50 crore from its Hindi version only. If we add other languages, then the action thriller's first-day box office collection stands at around Rs 55 crore.

By minting around Rs 55 crore on day one and Rs 50 crore from its Hindi version only, War has shattered Aamir Khan's Thugs of Hindostan's (ToH) first-day box office collection of Rs 48.27 crore. Salman Khan's Bharat had minted Rs 41.62 crore on its opening day. Hence, War has become the highest opening day grosser at the Box office in 2019 leaving Salman Khan's Bharat behind by near Rs 13.4 crore.
Box Office trade analyst had already predicted big numbers for Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff starrer War. Taran Adarsh had tweeted on October 2 after the bumper opening of War citing, "Biggg *Day 1* number on the cards... #War starts with a big bang!"
Trade analysts are of the opinion that War Box Office Collection Day 2 and War Box Office Collection Day 3 will be around Rs 20-22 crore each and its Saturday and Sunday box office collection is expected in the range of Rs 35 crore. They are of the opinion that War has an advantage of the extended first week due to the Gandhi Jayanti falling on October 2 i.e. Wednesday. So, War is expected to mind Rs 150 crore with ease in its first-weekend box office collection. Let's see how does the tinsel town movie goers respond in coming four days of the War first weekend collection.
