Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s latest action thriller War has had a roaring run at the box office since it hit theatres on 2 October. The film has now hit the triple century by crossing Rs 300 crore on Day 19 of its release. Earlier this week, War surpassed the lifetime business of Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh (Rs 276.34 crore) to become the highest grossing Bollywood film of 2019. It has also crossed the lifetime business of Vicky Kaushal’s Uri.

⭐ Actors were signed two years ago at then prevalent rates.
⭐ CoP [₹ 150 cr] includes all fees/remuneration.
⭐ Hrithik has a backend deal. He's a partner in profits.
⭐ #War will be a franchise like #MissionImpossible series, with Hrithik staying constant.
The film also crossed Rs 200 crore in just seven days of its release, and Rs 100 crore in three days. War also became the 10th highest grossing Bollywood film of all time. Baahubali 2 remains at the number one spot, followed by Dangal, Sanju, PK and Tiger Zinda Hai.
