Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff starrer high octane action movie War has minted over Rs 300 crore in India. The actors are over the moon with the love the film has received since its release October 2. The film achieved the milestone on Sunday, and a day later, it became the seventh highest grossing #Hindi film, surpassing the lifetime business of Sultan and Padmaavat.
Hrithik says War, directed by Siddharth Anand, has redefined action films and action genre forever in India. "I'm delighted that our labor of love, blood and sweat has created so many milestones during the course of its run at the box office. It is absolutely sensational that War has entered the Rs 300 crore club but what's truly phenomenal is that this film has redefined action films and action genre forever in India," Hrithik said.
For Hrithik, it is the biggest victory and gratification for all who believed in the film. The total collection of this action entertainer, which hit the screens on Gandhi Jayanti, now stands at Rs 304 crore including Tamil and Telugu.
