The movie is the remake on 1973 blockbuster movie, Zanjeer. Priyanka Chopra is playing the female lead in the movie. Apoorva Lakhia is wielding the megaphone.The movie is being made in Telugu and Hindi and both the versions will have simultaneous release.
Apoorva Lakhia has recently finished the first rough cut of the film ‘Zanjeer’ (Toofan in Telugu) and he has brought this first edit to Hyderabad to show it to Charan and Chiranjeevi. It is with respect to this first screening that the director cheekily said that he felt nervous. Apoorva Lakhia himself revealed this on Twitter, “Hyd yet again…. Second home or what. Showing charan the rough first cut of both films…..Chiru sir watching too. Should I be nervous?”.
