War is the story of an Indian soldier, Khalid (Tiger), who is assigned to eliminate a senior agent and his mentor Kabir (Hrithik) as he has gone rogue. It is directed by Siddharth Anand and also stars Vaani Kapoor.
Even before the release of the film, trade analysts expected it to do well on the first day. Film trade analyst Atul Mohan had put the day one figure at around Rs 40 crore. Clearly, War has surpassed that expectation by a huge margin.
