Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan had a dream run at the box office this 2019, with two back-to-back hit films. While his work on the biopic ‘Super 30’ won him critical acclaim, ‘War’ proved to be a smashing hit. However, as far as the number game is concerned, the actor’s films fell short of a few crores at the Mumbai box office, which resulted in Akshay Kumar’s ‘Housefull 4’, Vicky Kaushal’s ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ and Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Kabir Singh’ taking the lead to claim supremacy.
Reacting to this box office update like a true sport, Hrithik took to his twitter handle to post an inspiring thought that read, “How good would I be if I didn’t have friends who were better than me.”

According to reports, Hrithik’s 'War' collected Rs 77.42 crore in the Mumbai circuit, which happened to be just short of Akshay’s ‘Housefull 4’ collection of Rs 79.25 crore.

Meanwhile, Shahid’s film, although embroiled in a lot of controversies, took the top spot, earning an impressive Rs 87.21 crore, with Vicky’s ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ trailing behind with a collection of Rs 84.11 crore.

However, as far as the overall total is concerned, Hrithik Roshan registered one of the highest domestic box office collections of the year, with ‘War’ surpassing the 300-crore mark. It also beat Salman Khan’s ‘Bharat’ and Shahid’s ‘Kabir Singh’ to register the highest earners at single screens across India in 2019.
