MUMBAI: This Friday was touted as a clash of two sisters Priyanka and Parineeti in Bollywood as their respective films Zanjeer and Shuddh Desi Romance hit theatres.
And Parineeti has beaten Priyanka, if box-office collections on the first day are anything to go by.
While Zanjeer, which is a remake of the 1973 blockbuster which launched Amitabh Bachchan as a super star, collected less than Rs 4 crore at the box-office on Friday, Parineeti starrer Shuddh Desi Romance garnered over Rs 7 crore.
Tweeted trade analyst Taran Adarsh, “#ShuddhDesiRomance is going from strength to strength. Friday *early trends* seems like 7 cr+. SUPERB!”
Trade website Koimoi.com said, “This week’s new release – Zanjeer failed to perform up to the mark on its Day 1 i.e. 1st Friday at the Domestic Box Office. Despite getting a wider release, the film saw a below average occupancy not just in the morning and afternoon shows but the entire day! As per early estimates, Zanjeer made a business of about 3.75-4 crores yesterday, which is quite disappointing.’’
