Priyanka Chopra confirmed for Zanjeer remake

#On Wednesday morning, Priyanka Chopra was signed to play the lead role in the new-age version of Zanjeer to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia.

According to sources from the project, Priyanka’s role would be a far cry from Jaya Bachchan’s chakku-chureewali 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 café. Though she will be dressed most glamorously, she won’t be doing any songs or item numbers.”

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

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