Parineeti Chopra's Shuddh Desi Romance also featuring one-film old Sushant Singh Rajput and newcomer Vaani Kapoor earned about Rs 6.45 crore on its first Friday, while, the cult remake, Zanjeer featuring Priyanka Chopra and South star Ram Charan Teja has earned a mere Rs 3.44 crore.
Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted the figures of the two films saying:

#Zanjeer *actuals* Fri 3.44 cr nett. Note: Hindi version only.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) September 7, 2013
The two Friday releases, Zanjeer and Shuddh Desi Romance were made on a budget of Rs 70 crore and rs 30 crore respectively.
Zanjeer opened to poor reviews while Shuddh Desi Romance got mixed reviews.
So, clearly Shuddh Desi Romance is doing better than Zanjeer.
