Box Office: 'Shuddh Desi Romance' scores, 'Zanjeer' flops!
Shock and awe for director Apoorva Lakhia as his Zanjeer remake bit the dust at the box office in the opening weekend. The failure looks all the more glaring in the face of the good run of Shuddh Desi Romance.

So much for star power. Zanjeer, starring Priyanka Chopra and introducing Ram Charan Teja (already a star downsouth) had such a disappointing run at the box office that it would most likely be taken off many of the 2086 screens it released on.

The box office figures of Zanjeer (Hindi version) are embarrassing to even quote. The film opened slow on Friday (Rs. 3.58 crore net), slid down on Saturday (Rs. 2.89 crore net) and recovered only marginally on Sunday (Rs. 3.69 crore net). With the opening weekend figures hovering just a little above Rs. 10 crore, the film can safely be tagged as a FLOP.

Shuddh Desi Romance, starring Parineeti Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput and Vaani Kapoor, had an excellent run in the opening weekend, despite releasing on just 1050 screens.

The film opened well on Friday (Rs. 6.45 crore net), and only went up on Saturday (7.90 crore) and Sunday (8.92 crore) to register the opening weekend collection of Rs. 23.27 crore net. The film is on its way to be a HIT.

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