Overwhelmed with the film's success, Hrithik Roshan said in a statement, "It is an incredible response to our hard work and I’m truly grateful to the audience for loving our film. When we decided to make War, we were clear that we were attempting to do something that has never been done in Indian cinema and we went all out to make it happen. So, it’s hugely validating to see the fantastic response of the people enjoying our action entertainer in the theatres."
In War, Hrithik is pitted against Tiger Shroff, and the actor said working with the young star was a learning experience. "I was learning. I was constantly watching his honesty, integrity, the process that he applies. To pull off a two-hero film, you need two people, who are honest and have love and admiration for each other. With Tiger, I feel so much love and admiration for the person he is and the actor that he is," Hrithik said.
War tells the story of an agent Khalid (Tiger Shroff) who is sent on a mission to eliminate his senior and mentor Kabir (Hrithik Roshan) who has gone rogue.
