Ash no match for Bipasha

Aishwarya Rai's first production Dil Ka Rishta opened to a disappointing response. Even Rai's presence couldn't help this predictable fare.

On the other hand, Jism met with a decent response. Whether it will become a huge success and strengthen Bipasha Basu's position in the industry remains to be seen.

Note: Films are ranked on the basis of their performance at the box office every week. Though a film may be declared a flop, it may have performed better than other films that particular week.
