Despite facing copyright trouble over the story from the original
writers, the preparation to kick-start Ram Charan Teja's Bollywood
debut movie Zanjeer, the remake of the cult classic of the
same name, is in brisk progress. Well, the latest news about the
movie is that gorgeous Priyanka Chopra is being considered to play
the female lead.
Grapevine is abuzz with the news that Priyanka Chopra has been
approached by the makers of Zanjeer and she is likely to
pair up with Ram Charan Teja in the forthcoming film. Though she
has not given a green signal for the project yet, it is believed
that she is very excited to play the role of a street performer
played by Jaya Bachchan in the original. It is interesting to note
that the actress has also been part of Amitabh Bachchan's other
cult classic remakes like Don and Agneepath.
Meanwhile, Ram Charan Teja has revealed that Amitabh Bachchan is
happy for the young actor and he will be meeting the Bollywood
superstar to seek his blessings. However, the remake of
Zanjeer is produced by Prakash Mehra, the
director-producer of the original version, and directed by Apoorva
Lakhia. It is expected to take off in April.
