The 1st day collections of a movie tell you a lot about its fate. No movie without a big opening has gone ahead to become one of the highest grossers of Indian cinema. While the opening collections do not guarantee a success, but they are almost essential these days for a higher final collection. So its very important for any producer or actor to make sure his movie secures a decent spot in the chart of Indian Movies with Highest 1st day collection.
Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff’s War is dominating the box office since day one. And we’d expect nothing less given the stellar cast – Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff coming together for the first time. The audience was treated to Hrithik and Tiger’s amazing camaraderie and some jaw-dropping action sequences, resulting in War becoming the biggest Bollywood opener of 2019 till date.
As seen in the past, festive-season release, A-lister star cast, and a large number of screens to run on are the factors that can affect the box office collections of a film. Like, for instance, Salman Khan prefers an Eid release. Gandhi Jayanti, Ram Navami and Dussehra worked in favour of War, pulling a higher number of audience into the theatres.
