⭐ 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.
With Tiger Shroff’s character dying in War, it is unsure if he’ll be starring in the sequel, but Hrithik will be a part of it.
According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, Hrithik Roshan also had a backend deal with Yash Raj Films, whereby he also has a share in profits. 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.
The film also crossed Rs 200 crore in just seven days of its release, and Rs 100 crore in three days and is the highest opener for its stars Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff and director Siddharth Anand.
