'War' box office update: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's protagonist become the highest grossing Indian movie after two years
Director Sidharth Anand 'Guerra' starring Hrithik Roshan & Tiger shroff has shattered many ticket office records in the domestic market. Overall the film has raked Rs 303.21 crore nett at the ticket office & has managed to become the top-grossing Indian film after 'Dangal' released in 2016.
According to BoxofficeIndia.com, the Hrithik Roshan & Tiger shroff starrer have surpassed 2016 release Aamir Khan starrer 'Dangal' to emerge as the top-grossing Indian film. After 'Dangal', the South dominated films 'Bahubali - The Conclusion' (2017) & '2.0 (2018)' were listed at the top. Its good to see a Hindi film on the cap, however, the question is for how long will this last? As Hindi films are struggling for the real big numbers at the ticket office .
It was a close competition with Prabhas's film 'Saaho' & 'War' but Hrithik's film had a slight edge. These were the only two films to collect Rs.300 crore nett plus this year but it came in all formats. In terms of gross numbers then 'War' manages to extend its release a little. The numbers are less than the toppers of last year as 'Bahubali - The Conclusion' has Rs.1115.86 crores & '2.0' has Rs.413.30 crores.
The report further added that in the past there have been only five times that a non-Hindi film has topped the charts in the history of Indian cinema & those are 'Sivaji' in 2007, 'Endhiran' in 2010, 'Bahubali - The Beginning' in 2015, 'Bahubali - The Conclusion' in 2017 & '2.0' in 2018.
The film 'War' needed the dubbed versions to get the top spot & going forward there is a bigger chance that South films will do better in Hindi than vice versa.
