At a time when Bollywood has been going gaga over South remakes, actor Ram Charan Tej has taken a different route, a bold step by foraying into Bollywood with a remake of yesteryear hit “Zanjeer” that had made Amitabh Bachchan the ‘angry young man‘.
Stepping into Big B’s shoes, Charan had to do something about his Hindi.
Though Charan’s character has been reportedly etched in such a manner that he does not have to speak much, the actor on his own begun to take Hindi lessons.
And now we hear that he has indeed managed to surprise the “Zanjeer” team with his flawless Hindi, when the first leg of shooting began in Mumbai recently.
In this remake, Charan is paired opposite Priyanka Chopra, who is reprising Jaya Bachchan’s role in the original.
Zanjeer remake will release in summer 2013.
