Just a few days back it was reported that renowned filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia was toying with the idea of remaking 1973 blockbuster ‘Zanjeer’ and how he was looking forward to cast new stars in the retro hit remake. It was then assumed that he would sign Priyanka Chopra in the role of Jaya Bachchan and now we hear that the assumption has turned out to be true.
Reportedly Priyanka has been offered a humungous Rs. 11 crores for the film and she is keen to sign the dotted line. The film’s plot however will be tweaked to suit the modern sensibilities. The remake is set in the backdrop of oil mafia and Priyanka is expected to play an NRI cafe owner in it. After Priyanka being finalized for Jaya’s role it remains to be seen who will step in to play Amitabh’s role in the remake.
