Shuddh Desi Romance, a film with an appeal for the youth, edged out the actioner Zanjeer on its opening day at the box office.

The scales tipped clearly in favour of Shuddh Desi Romance despite the fact that the film released on only 1050 screens as compared to a wider release of Zanjeer on 2086 screens. It’s double the number of screens for Zanjeer but its collections were pathetically half than that of Shuddh Desi Romance.

Here are the numbers: SDR starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor collected Rs. 6.45 crore nett on Friday, whereas Zanjeer starring Priyanka Chopra and Ram Charan Teja, could only manage Rs. 3.44 crore nett, which is way below par.

The response to Zanjeer is somewhat better at single screen theatres, but the first choice of moviegoers at multiplexes is clearly Shuddh Desi Romance.

However, the Telugu version of Zanjeer, titled Thoofan, has done well in the south.

The film by Apoorva Lakhia is a remake of the 1973 Zanjeer and it has got mixed reviews by the critics. So has Shuddh Desi Romance, but the film is expected to notch between 20 crore to 25 crore nett in its opening weekend. Zanjeer needs to show a magical turnaround on Saturday and Sunday to be able to make any mark.

The next week would see the release of Grand Masti, Horror Story and John Day.
