For Priyanka, it's a Chopra weekend

Mumbai, Aug 22 : Priyanka Chopra starrer "Zanjeer" remake and her cousin, actress Parineeti Chopra's romantic-comedy "Shuddh Desi Romance" are set to clash at the box office Sep 6. But the Desi Girl is unfazed and calls it a 'Chopra weekend'.


"The way I see it, it's a Chopra weekend. So go and enjoy the movies," Priyanka told reporters here Wednesday, while promoting Disney's animation film "Planes", for which she has lent her voice.

"She (Parineeti) is my family and she is my sister," she added.

Produced by Amit Mehra and directed by Apoorva Lakhia, "Zanjeer" is a remake of 1973 film of the same name and features southern star Ram Charan Teja with Priyanka.

On the other hand, "Shuddh Desi Romance" features two film old Parineeti with Sushant Singh Rajput. It also features veteran actor Rishi Kapoor in a key role.

"I think it is very cheap when people try and use that (same day release of our films) for creating some sort of interesting controversy, so that you can write a bit more about it," the 31-year-old said.

Meanwhile, Parineeti, who is busy promoting her film these days, is also unfazed about it and is looking forward to watch "Zanjeer".

"It's just happens that her (Priyanka) film and my film are releasing together, but it doesn't affect us. I will watch her picture and she will watch mine and you all will watch both the films," she said.

"Shuddh Desi Romance", directed by Maneesh Sharma and produced by Aditya Chopra, also features newcomer Vaani Kapoor.
