While everyone is looking forward to a sweet September, Priyanka Chopra maybe quite nervous about her upcoming movie Zanjeer which is set to release on September 6. This is mainly because Shuddh Desi Romance starring her cousin Parineeti Chopra is releasing on the same day.
Earlier, Shuddh Desi Romance was set to hit the theatres on September 13 but it was preponed because the film will be screened in the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11. This last minute reshuffle in the release dates may have caused Priyanka Chopra a nightmare.
Now that the dates for the movies have already been fixed, they cannot be changed. Looks like the cousins are going to have some competition here. While Zanjeer is an action movie starring Ram Charan along Priyanka, Shuddh Desi Romance is a romantic comedy featuring Sushant Singh Rajput opposite Parineeti Chopra.
Zanjeer, which is directed by Apoorva Lakhia, is the remake of a 1973 film with the same name. On the other hand, Shuddh Desi Romance is a fresh romantic comedy which has a story that revolves around love, attraction and commitment.
Zanjeer's posters were released in the month of March and Shuddh Desi Romance released its trailer quite recently, but stars from both the films have been doing their bit of promotions. Let's wait and watch to see which of the Chopras win this competition.
Have a look at the slide show for more details and images of the cousins in their respective movies.
