Priyanka Chopra In Zanjeer

Priyanka Chopra was signed to play lead role in the remake of ‘Zanjeer’ to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia. Priyanka Chopra’s role would be a far cry from Jaya Bhaduri’s chakku-churee walee in the original ‘Zanjeer’, says a source.

Priyanka will play a woman of today. She will be cast as a US-returned owner of a cafe. Though she will be dressed most glamourously she won’t be doing any songs or item number.

Interestingly Priyanka has been paid on a par with the film’s leading man Ramcharan Teja, close to Rs 6 crores for both the Hindi and Telegu versions of ‘Zanjeer’.

Our very reliable sources tell us that Teja has promised to help Priyanka with her Telegu if she promises to help him with his Hindi.

Zanjeer’s co-producer Amit Mehera confirmed the casting of Priyanka Chopra.
