Rush Box Office Collections – Disaster for Emraan Hashmi

‘Too Many Cooks Spoil the Dish’ – Guess this saying goes perfectly with the results of new releases in Bollywood last weekend. Three major movies, a Prakash Jha social drama ‘Chakravyuh’, a decent entertainer ‘Azab Gazzab Love’ and an Emraan Hashmi’s crime thriller ‘Rush’, released simultaneously and as expected ate into each other’s business. The fact that, Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year was also going strong at the box-office, didn’t help.

For Emraan Hashmi, who was on a dream run with the commercial successes of The Dirty Picture, Jannat 2 and Raaz 3 and critically acclaimed Shanghai, Rush has been a rare disaster. It is true that the film was never expected to open well, as it was looking like a stale product from Day 1, but the weekend business was shockingly poor.

Film is a total washout for Emraan who is slowly becoming the darling of the Masses. Surprisingly, it failed to even cross the 3 crores in its opening weekend. Day wise break-up is as mentioned below:

Rush Week 1 Box Office Collections

  • Friday – 0.6 crore
  • Saturday – 0.7 crore
  • Sunday – 0.95 crore
  • First Weekend Collections – 2.25 crore
  • Monday – 0.3 crore
  • Tuesday – 0.25 crore
  • Wednesday – 0.20 crore
  • Thursday – 0.20 crore
  • Rush Week 1 Total – 3.20 crores

The film is out of most theatres in Week 2.

Yes, the promos and the trailer was stale and it had no mass appeal. You can’t ignore his star power though. Jannat 2 and Raaz 3 had great openings even Barfi opened low copared to Raaz 3. I have heard Karan Johar and Vishal Bhardwaj signed him for their movies and he will soon get back in the game.

Emraan is a B grade actor and his movies worked because of mahesh bhatt and sex scenes….Emraan’s carrer is already over…he ll always remain a B grade porn star…He is spoling the name of islam by doing indecent roles and scenes…shame on him

@zahid ali..completely agree. he’s not B but C grade actor. this was expected and will be from now. he has produced hits only when kissing scenes and sex is there in the movie. and his movies all disaster when sex scenes not there.why the audience still tolerate him, i dont understand for last 6 years!!if they are too frustrated to see such things, why cant they go n watch porn movies, free of cost in internet and men n women who perform 100 times better than this emraan useless!!its been pathetic, sometimes thinking about the mentality of indian audience..very sad.

Imran is the best actor… Watch the Murder 2 & salman’s film READY.. Or dilse bataiye kon si film best hai?? I think MURDER 2. 10 guna better hai.. Fir b READY is super hit.. Yeh to hamari hi galti hai, ki hum salman ki film kaisi b ho fir b housefull. & Imran ki kitni b acchi ho, fir b floff…. To sochiye kaise superstar ban payega IMRAN HASHMI ????

I really dnt know hashmi know acting or not, but u can get a good and well defined story in his film, which is rare in case of other actors. Rush is also containing a good story..
