Meanwhile, here’s a look at Emraan Hashmi’s biggest hits.
The Dirty Picture

Jannat 2 wasn’t as successful as the original Jannat but it did well because of Emraan Hashmi’s presence and the popularity of the franchise. The music was popular and a smoking hot Esha Gupta added glamour.

Jannat released right in the middle of the IPL season, and still managed to grab eyeballs. The theme of the film was match fixing and the timing was prefect. Debutant director Kunal Deshmukh had a good script as well.
Box office collections: Rs 32 crore
This was Emraan’s first film to cross Rs 20 crore at the box office. It was a milestone for the actor and it also took director Mohit Suri into the big league.

This is where it all started for Emraan Hashmi. His debut film Footpath had tanked, but there was an immediate turnaround in his fortunes when Murder shocked Bollywood by taking a huge all-round opening. If Mallika Sherawat showed the world what erotica was all about, Emraan’s scintillating chemistry with her made the nation sway to the tune of the song, Bheege Hoth Tere.

Emraan played an undercover cop in Gangster, and serenaded Kangana Raut, leading one to expect a romantic relationship. His double-faced act at the end was thus a surprise for viewers. It was a difficult part to play, particularly with good co-stars like Kangana Ranaut and Shiney Ahuja, but Emraan scored quite well.
Box office collection: Rs 13 crore
After the success of Murder, Emraan suffered a setback with Tumsa Nahi Dekha. But Zeher put him back on track. It was director Mohit Suri’s first film and had a decent run at the box office. Udita Goswami, who later married Mohit Suri, starred in the film with Shamita Shetty.
