Shuddh Desi romance Vs. Zanjeer

As expected ‘The Chopra Weekend’ bought competition among the Chopra sisters. And looks like Parineeti is ahead in the race until now by Rs.3 crore, as the remake of the classic Zanjeer receives lukewarm response at the Box Office, while Shuddh Desi Romance tucks in rave reviews.


A leading English portal reported that while Parineeti’s Shuddh Desi Romance made on a budget of Rs. 30 crores earned approx. Rs. 7 crores at the Box Office on the first day, Priyanka’s Zanjeer, made on a budget of Rs. 70 crores, earned a mere Rs. 4 crores.

This clearly puts 24-year-old Parineeti Rs. 3 crores ahead of 31-year-old Priyanka Chopra in their first Box Office clash ever. While Zanjeer was highly criticised for not being able to cope up with the benchmark set by the original Zanjeer, the fresh and youth-oriented script of Shuddh Desi Romance has managed to woo all.

Way to go Parineeti!!
