Emraan more satisfied with Rush than his Rs 100 crore films

Emraan Hashmi’s film Rush released 26 October to a lukewarm response, but for the actor, it remains a special film. He says the movie is much more satisfying than his other hit films as he managed to fulfill the wish of its original director Shamin Desai, who died earlier this year.

‘A journalist sent me an sms saying only 20 people are sitting in the hall for your film. So I replied, I feel more victorious in this film (Rush) than even a Rs 100 crore film because I fulfilled a dying man’s last wish,’ the 33-year-old said here in an interview.

Desai, the original director of Rush, died in January 2011 after announcing his maiden directorial venture titled
Raftaar 24x7.

Later, his wife Priyanka Desai re-announced the film.

Emraan plays a crime journalist in the film.

‘Shamin, a friend, a colleague whose film could not be completed for almost three years and a production company that was in the doldrums...He had worked so hard on the film,’ he said.

For Emraan, its been a successful run at the box office so far, with movies like Jannat 2, Shanghai and Raaz 3.

‘So, people don’t see the business side of it... I think my films have made more money than other Rs 100 crore films,’ he added.

Emraan’s forthcoming films include Ghanchakkar, Ek Thi Daayan and Unglee.
