War had a huge Tuesday as it collected around 27 crore nett on Dusshera. The film went up around 30% from the previous days and it was one of the highest first Tuesdays in history. The first week collections at 206 crore nett apprx are the third highest ever after Bahubali - The Conclusion (2017) and Sultan (2016). The only other film to get 200 crore nett in a week in Sanju (2018).



The growth was better in mass centres and it was Gujarat / Saurashtra leading the way in terms of growth as it was the end of Navratri on Monday. The numbers of the film are huge across the board with East India being simply phenomenal due to the extended holiday period.

War is now the third highest grosser of the year after Kabir Singh and Uri - The Surgical Strike and the film has good chances of being the highest grosser of the year. The Dusshera holiday period is over now and there will be a drop in collections on Wednesday but the film is already in a strong position with big numbers up on the board.

Sultan got saved because war had less screens..
War would have done 220-225cr if it had released on 4700 screens..
War all languages total is 216.5 in 4k screens which is again huge..

Yeah not like that.
It shouldn't consist of if's and but's.
Because that way Sultan had 288cr gross week that too in 2016 and War barely 250cr.
So one can claim if GST wasn't there it could have fallen way short of sultan.


i am just comparing nett...
if it had same release size of sultan then it would have had a gross of 265cr...
basically war should be considered like a film clashed with other 2 films..almost 1k screens lost..
these things also matter..
similarly if sultan had released on 3850 screens clash with 2 films,then it would not have crossed 190cr only..


You are not getting my point bro
If you are comparing nett then why bringing these if's and but's
Yeah it's 3rd highest nett grosser there's no need of if's and but's
No need to claim bigger than sultan when it's not either nett or gross wise
Regarding clash and 3850 screens it got partial holiday on Monday and national holiday on Tuesday , didn't it compensate that very well.
It is a huge success for all involved, we shouldn't indulge in those if's and but's.
There's no need
We can't claim something that's not ours

I clearly says many times gross is responsible for reords not nett due to tax changes. So its 5th highest as par gross and 10th highest as par footfalls for bollywood movies.


but boi will placed it on 3rd when they prepared the list of top opening week..

see below example for top opening day net collection...even though PRDP has more gross than bharat it has ranked below similar case with TZH and sanju...

War set the highest opening day ever as it beat the record of Thugs Of Hindostan by a decent margin despite being released on a lesser number of screens and that film was the day after Diwali which is the biggest day for box office collections when records are set.

The film has beaten Bharat by around 10 crore nett which was released on Eid earlier this year with fewer screens. The previous best openings were Hrithik Raoshan and Tiger Shroff were Bang Bang and Baaghi 2 both of which collected in the 25 crore nett range and this film has more than doubled the number. The film is the highest opening for YRF as well as they beat their own Thugs Of Hindoston. The release was not optimum so this record has a good chance of being beaten by a solo release on a holiday but even then you have to have a film to beat it and these films are very few. The top opening days of all time are as follows.

  1. War - 51,50,00,000 apprx (3850 screens)
  1. Thugs of Hindostan - 48,27,00,000 (4700 screens)
  1. Bharat - 41,62,00,000 (4650 screens)
  1. Bahubali - The Conclusion 40,73,00,000 (3950 screens)
  1. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo - 39,32,00,000 (4200 screens)
  1. Sultan - 36,59,00,000 (4350 screens)
  1. Happy New Year - 36,31,00,000 (3850 screens)
  1. Sanju - 34,19,00,000 (4200 screens)
  1. Tiger Zinda Hai - 34,12,00,000 (4600 screens)
  1. Dhoom 3 - 32,48,000 (3650 screens)

War collected first 51.50 cr nett and beat toh first day 48.27 cr so its highest opening day record for bollywood film. But as par BOI this film is set opening day record due to war best toh opening day gross 61.78 cr. Hope you understand my point.

Example - Trimurti collected 1.06 cr nett in 1995 and koyla also collected same 1.06 cr nett in 1997 but BOI consider koyla as a record opener. In a Que and answer session BOI says that koyla first day gross is more than Trimurti that's why koyla is record opening day. Clearly Boi says opening records major only gross fig. Not nett.

Same thing happen here.


I don't know what boi said before....but from above list they considers nett collection to rank movies....dhoom3 has better gross than TZH still they ranked TZH above Dhoom3...second thing I want to ask u...what is gross collection of sanju and TZH? and PRDP, bharat and Bahubali2...see below link d3 and tzh opening day

Example - Trimurti collected 1.06 cr nett in 1995 and koyla also collected same 1.06 cr nett in 1997 but BOI consider koyla as a record opener
because both has similar nett collection that they consider gross collection..anyway leave it

It will earn minimum 310cr and will remain as hgoty. Hrithik has finally broken the ice after half a decade of doing dull movies.
