'War' enters Rs 200 cr club

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff-starrer 'War' has crossed the Rs 200 crore-mark at the box office in its first week, the makers announced on Thursday.

Directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films, the movie opened countrywide on October 2.

Hrithik said he is overjoyed and humbled about the number of records the film has created so far.

"We wanted to make a film that raises the bar of action films in India and could truly compete with the best of action spectacles being made in the West. We are all delighted that 'War' has done just that and is getting incredible love and appreciation from audiences across the world.

"'War' is a genre-defining action film and I'm extremely happy for the entire cast and crew of 'War' because we all have given our all and more to make this film a cut above. I'm delighted that YRF has again done something completely out-of-the-box and given India a new action franchise," the actor said in a statement.
