With the trade vouching for him as one of the most saleable stars in the industry, Emraan Hashmi aka Hitman Hashmi has proved yet again that he is the “darling of the masses” .

Says acclaimed critic and trade analyst , Taran Adarsh, “Emraan Hashmi has proved it in the past and again with 'The Dirty Picture', that he is the darling of the masses. His strength lies in his mass appeal. His choice of films, choice of roles certainly explains why his films automatically open to very good houses when they release.”

Confirms Vajir Singh,Box Office India, "The kind of films that Emraan has been doing are all entertainment films. He experiments but doesn't cross his boundaries. He does very massy movies. In Indian cinema, songs play a very vital role. His choice of cinema, choice of music has been very good. Hence after Salman Khan, its Emraan Hashmi who is the king of single screen cinema."

After films like Murder and its sequel , Jannat, Raaz 2 and The Dirty Picture, the actor is better known as ‘hero of the masses’ , has carved a niche for himself, with a fan base that very few in the industry enjoy. A favourite at the box office, Emraan Hashmi has also managed to get cash registers ringing for films made on small budgets. While Murder was made on a budget of 19 cr, the film grossed over 58 Cr worldwide. Jannat collected Rs.32,47,00,000 in 5 weeks, a considerable amount for its small budget. Murder 2 collected 36.5 crores in its first week while Raaz 2 grossed over Rs 30 crore at the box office, making it the highest grossing horror film in India yet.

“Emraan Hashmi has done great work with us, both in The Dirty Picture and OUATIM…He’s the kind of actor who guarantees success, he has a massive fan following and his association with Balaji is going to be longstanding”, said Ekta Kapoor.

If sources are to be believed Emraan Hashmi is also the latest to join the club of the highest paid actors in the industry going by his consistent track record. Says Komal Nahta, “ Every actor raises his price after delivering hits. Business-wise there’s a comfort level with Emraan now.”

Currently the actor is shooting for Jannat 2 and Raj Kumar Gupta’s Ghanchakkar.
