Actor Ram Charan Teja has become a superstar in a
very short span of time in South India and he expected to repeat
the same in North with his debut Hindi film Zanjeer, which is
a remake of Amitabh Bachchan's 1973 film with the same name. But
the film goers have rejected him out right. Hence, his action
thriller has stooped down before its rival Shuddh Desi
Romance with a poor collection at the Indian Box
Office in the first weekend.
Being one of the most-hyped and highly-anticipated movies of the
year, Zanjeer was expected to start with a bang. But it
had a very poor opening, leading to low collection at the Indian
Box Office on Friday. When everyone was hoping that it would have a
big leap, the movie slipped down by nearly 30% on Saturday. Its
business grew up on Sunday, but it was not upto the mark.
Released in 2,085 screens across the country, Zanjeer
collection was expected to be double of its competitor - Shuddh
Desi Romance, which has a limited release of 1,050 screens.
But the Ram Charan and Priyanka starrer has collected Rs 9.74
crores nett at the Indian Box Office in the first weekend, while
the latter minted Rs 23.45 crores nett in three days. Its breakup
is Rs 3.58 cr on Fri, Rs 2.89 cr on Sat and Rs 3.27 cr on Sun.
