Emraan Hashmi can breathe better. His Azhar has taken a much better start when compared to his last few films. With approximately 6.3 crore coming in, the film is now on a footing where it can grow on the basis of word of mouth.

The problem with last few Emraan starrers was the fact that they didn’t even open well while audience reception (barring Hamari Adhuri Kahani to an extent) was generally not good. However that is not the case with this Tony D’Souza directed film as the feedback has ranged from decent to good. Moreover, many have termed his portrayal of Azhar as Emraan’s best performance till date.

When compared to last few solo starrers of Emraan (where he is the central protagonist), this is how the opening day of Azhar stands:

Raaz 310.25 crore

Jannat 28.5 crore

Ghanchakkar7.4 crore

Murder 27.1 crore

Azhar 6.3 crore

Ek Thi Daayan6.24 crore

Raja Natwarlal6.1 crore

Hamari Adhuri Kahani5.1 crore

Mr. X4.5 crore

The film is expected to grow further today, though it is the extent of growth that would decide how much further would Azhar fly in the course of the week.
