After the Khans, Kumar and Devgan the Box Office meter shows that the next league of Superstars are clearly Ranbir Kapoor and Emran Hashmi. Others like Shahid Kapoor, Imran Khan, Ranveer Singh are still far from this league.
Talking of Ranbir Kapoor we have discussed earlier about his Box office journey on koimoi. It has not been a blockbuster or Superhit journey but has been a performance oriented graph.
In case of Emraan Hashmi, he may have churned more hits than Ranbir Kapoor in his bollywood career. He has created his fan following and also entered the hearts of Multiplex from being a only Single Screen hero. He also has 3 hits out of his last releases in Raaz 3, Jannat 2 and Murder 2. Not to mention, Shanghai was also an average fare.
The star power is also proven by the strength of the star to command an initial for his movie. Though the likes of Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan are a phenomenon these 2 have also done well in their league. Talking about the two stars let’s compare the opening weekend of their recently released movies Raaz 3 and Barfi!.
The above figures say both Ranbir and Emraan are at par in the opening weekend of their last outing. Barfi! has more Multiplex support and Raaz 3 did well of initial multiplex and later single screen support.
Raaz 3 has already achieved 64 crores in India box office and may end at 70 crore lifetime collection. The coming week will tell about Barfi’s stand at the box office.
Emraan made his debut in 2003 with Foothpath and Ranbir debuted in 2007 with Saawaryia. There is no doubt that Emraan and Ranbir are here to stay for a long run coming years. Who do you think is the “Lambi Race Ka Godha”?
