On 30th April, Ram Charan Teja took to his Twitter account to share his excitement over completing the first schedule of the movie Zanjeer. Besides posting a photo featuring Amitabh Bachchan with him, the actor wrote, “Zanjeer first schedule done..I'm super happy with the outcome.” On the following day, he further tweeted, “By the way we r also shooting the telugu version of Zanjeer along wit the hindi...” (sic).
However, Zanjeer is a remake of Amitabh Bachchan's 1973 classic action film with the same name. Produced by Amit Mehra and directed by Apoorva Lakhia, the new version features Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Rampal, Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill in the lead roles. The movie is expected to hit the screens in 2013.
