Bollywood film "Shuddh Desi Romance" has witnessed a rise in its collections on its second day at the Indian box office. The film is garnering audiences' attention because of its bold theme.

The film registered good occupancy of around 80-85 percent in theatres on Saturday. The film is doing well in circuits like Rajasthan, Delhi, NCR, Mumbai, and UP.

The flick starring Parineeti Chopra, Sushant Singh Rajput and Vaani Kapoor in lead roles was released in just 1,050 screens. But in several circuits, theatres owners gave preference to "Shuddh Desi Romance" over "Zanjeer", which was released on the same date.

The film is expected to earn around ₹9 crore - ₹10 crore on Sunday and take the opening weekend total to more than ₹23 crore. Made on a budget of around ₹25 - ₹30 crore, the film is expected to earn the production cost before finishing its first-week run at the domestic box office.
