Emraan Hashmi was, at one point in time, enough to bring in the crowds to the theatres.
Jannat, too, had excelled despite being released during the IPL season. But later, things turned sour for his films. He has seen back-to-back disappointments in last few years. His last big hit was Raaz 3D and we are talking about 2012 here. Baadshaho thus has come as a big relief for him as it has already earned Rs 43.30 crore in three days. With the way it has managed to charm the audience, it can become his next hit after Raaz 3D.
Post Raaz 3D, Emraan has done a lot of movies and all of them are as diverse as possible. He wanted to delve in different genres - an attempt which was pretty clear from the choice of films. But all fell flat at the box office. The nine films which he did were, Rush, Ek Thi Daayan, Ghanchakkar, Raja Natwarlal, Ungli, Mr. X, Humari Adhuri Kahani, Azhar and Raaz Reboot. As you can see, these are all different genres, that he tried but they couldn't live up to his and the audience's expectations. Baadshaho changed it all for Emraan now. Critics, too, had the nicest things to say about his performance in the film. The actor seemed to be completely in his zone and thus managed to put up a really good act. This will help him make people forget all about his last disappointments. Check out the lifetime collection of his last couple of films and you will realise what we are saying.
Raaz Reboot - Rs. 30 crore
Azhar - Rs. 33 crore
Hamari Adhuri Kahani - Rs. 39 crore
Mr. X - Rs. 25 crore
Ungli - Rs. 23 crore
Raja Natwarlal - Rs. 29.20 crore
Ghanchakkar - Rs. 34 crore
Ek Thi Daayan - Rs. 28 crore
Rush - Rs 2.10 crore
Raaz 3D, which released in 2012, had earned over Rs 70 crore in its lifetime and is Emraan's biggest hit in recent times. Well, Baadshaho is showing a good trend. Hence, it is expected to make Emraan enjoy box office dividends after a long wait.
