Box Office: Azhar is Emraan Hashmi’s 5th highest Opening day grosser

By Bollywood Hungama News Network

Yesterday saw the release of the much hyped sports biopic Azhar featuring Emraan Hashmi, Prachi Desai and Nargis Fakhri in lead roles. The film, which is based on the struggles and scandals

of former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin's life, has opened to rave reviews.

In this box office report, we take a look at the Opening Day collections of Azhar while comparing them to that of Emraan Hashmi's previous releases. The film, after a series of promotions,

has become the fifth highest opening day grosser of Emraan Hashmi and has registered a collection of Rs. 6.30 cr. Azhar has managed to leave behind the last few releases of the actor which

includes Hamari Adhuri Kahani that collected Rs. 5.04 cr and Mr. X that collected Rs. 4.5 cr on its opening day but has failed to break the record of some of the star's super-hit

films like Raaz 3, The Dirty Picture, Murder 2 and Jannat 2.

Owing to its realistic nature, performances and positive reviews, however, the film is expected to do good business in the coming weekend.
