Murder

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.

Box office collection: Rs 14 crore

 

Gangster

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.
