Come this Friday, and  we will see cousins - Priyanka and Parineeti - battle it out at the box office. With "Zanjeer" and "Shuddh Desi Romance" hitting the theaters this weekend, it would be entertaining to see which Chopra girl woos the audience better.

This is the first time that the Chopra sisters have been pitted against each other in Friday tug-of-war.

Coming to their films, Yash Raj Films romcom "Shuddh Desi Romance" (SDR) starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Parineeti Chopra and Vaani Kapoor  is as different in tone and tempo than Apoorva Lakhia’s action flick - "Zanjeer" starring Telugu star Ram Charan Teja alongside Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt.

“The best thing about the two releases this Friday is that 80 per cent of the people who will watch Shuddh Desi Romance will probably not watch Zanjeer and 80 per cent of the people who will watch Zanjeer will probably not watch SDR. Both the films cater to absolutely different audience bases and neither of the two will bite into the business of the other,” feels exhibitor-distributor Akshaye Rathi.

“While I expect a larger chunk of Zanjeer’s business to come from its Telugu version Toofan and the tier two and three cities, SDR will make its impact with the multiplexes and the youth of the tier two cities. Expect happy times for the industry over these seven days!” Rathi adds.

About the box office fate of these two films, numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts, “As per the numerological meaning derived, it seems the Zanjeer remake will nowhere be able to match up to the expectations of the original and hence it will be outright rejected by the paying public. Despite its box office fate, the Telugu star Ram Charan Teja will be accepted by the audiences and shall receive accolades. Priyanka will do an earnest job and enact her part with utmost sincerity. Sanjay Dutt will be loved by the aam junta for reprising the role of Sher Khan enacted superbly by the late Pran saab”

On SDR, Sangghvi says, “Going by the film’s basic theme, the numerological meaning derived from the vibration of the title seems apt; and hence it shall definitely appeal especially to those who endorse or at least believe in this concept. No prizes for guessing, all the three young actors will be equally praised for giving earnest and real performances. As for producer Aditya Chopra, it will be yet another hit for him.”

With SDR likely to have that extra edge over “Zanjeer” remake, the next week is likely to be exciting enough for all movie buffs with loads of action, drama, and 'shuddh desi' romance on the offing.
