Crew of “Zanjeer” bets on Ram and Priyanka
Priyanka Chopra is busy shooting for “Zanjeer” that is a remake of the original film by the same name. The original had released in the year 1973. It starred Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan as its lead pair. The remake is being directed by Apoorva Lakhia of “Shootout at Lokhandwala” fame.
This film stars Ram Charan who is a star down South and Priyanka Chopra. The film is going to be bilingual. It is simultaneously being shot in Hindi and Telugu.
Priyanka Chopra is known to be one of the finest actors of Bollywood. Her dialogue delivery has turned perfect with every film. However, Ram Charan is having a hard time with his southern accent that is coming in his way of dialogue delivery. Thus he is investing extra time on perfecting his diction of Hindi language.
However, the two actors are going through quite a similar phase as Priyanka is still on her way of getting the hang of Telugu.
A source informs that both Priyanka and Ram have been spending a lot of time together to help each other in sharpening their language diction.
Thus after pack-up both the stars- PC and RC- have been spending 2-3 hours together in improving the respective languages.
However, members of this film’s crew have been taking full advantage of their situation. They have been betting of Rs 500 each as to which actor will forget the lines first. Depending on whether Ram forgets his Hindi dialogues or Priyanka her Telugu dialogues, the winner will take all the money.
Apparently, this little teasing has been able to extract the better out of the two actors. They have taken it up as a task to not mess up their shoot. This has also let the two stars pull each other’s legs on the film set.
The crew members have not been able to avail anything as both the actor’s till now have been excelling. It can also be easily concluded that these stars are having a lot of fun while working together.
However, the real judges of their performances will be the audiences. And for that we will have to wait for the film to reach the theatres.
This film is being co-produced by Reliance Entertainment, Flying Turtle Films and Amit Mehra. The film is all geared for its release early this year.
The movie also stars Sanjay Dutt, Mahie Gill and Prakash Raj in pivotal roles.
