Zanjeer is a remake of a 1973 Hindi film with the same
name starring Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan in leads. Now, this
blockbuster movie is being remade simultaneously in Hindi and
Telugu. The film unit recently wrapped up its shooting schedule in
the city. Actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi took some time from
his busy schedule and made a surprise visit on the Zanjeer
Chiranjeevi was there to see his son Ram Charan in action and
the whole film unit seemed to be happy with his visit. The happiest
man in the team was Apoorva Lakhia, who could not stop gushing
about Chiru. The director said that thousands of Chiranjeevi fans,
who wanted to take his autographs and pictures, gathered on the
sets, bringing the shooting process to a standstill. He added that
he had never witnessed such a scene before.
However, Zanjeer is produced by Amit Mehra, the son of Prakash Mehra, who produced the original. The producer also seemed to be elated by the visit of Chiranjeevi, who spent a few hours on the sets. Talking about it, Amit said when Chiranjeevi sir came on the sets, he felt like his dad was there.
