Yash Raj Films’ action thriller “War” has recorded the highest opening weekend of 2019, making around Rs 158 crore over five days.

Talking about the film, Rakesh Roshan said: “I really liked the film. I think Hrithik and Tiger have performed really well in the film. Director (Siddharth Anand) of the film has also done a good job. It’s a big film and it has been mounted on a large scale. If anyone who hasn’t watched it yet then, I would like to urge them to watch the film. I am feeling really happy with the fact we have made a film in India which looks like a Hollywood film.”

When asked how important it is for a filmmaker to be religious or spiritual, the actor-director said: “We don’t become religious intentionally. Our parents have taught us to follow the religion and to offer prayers to God. We strongly feel connected to Durga mata because my mother belonged to Bengali community. So since childhood, I have been celebrating Durga Puja festival. Every year, my entire family celebrates this festival with a lot of happiness.”

Bollywood celebrities like Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Alia Bhatt, Sharbani Mukherjee, Tanuja, Tanishaa Mukerji, Hrishitaa Bhatt, Sumona Chakravarti and Ayan Mukerji were also present at the event.
