The makers of Zanjeer are planning to release the movie on April 12, 2013. 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.
Salman Khan might share good rapport with Mega family but that does not take any thing away from his father Salim Khan creating problems for Ram Charan starer Zanjeer. Salim lodged a complaint in FWA (Film Writer’s Association) for not taking permission to remake the film and asked for INR 6 crore as compensation. He has now approached Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) and requested them to stop the film’s shoot until the compensation is paid. He has alleged the makers for not seeking his permission before the remaking of 1973 hit starring Amitabh Bachchan in lead. Salim and lyricist Javed Akhtar were not very much enthusiastic for the remake and believed that the originality of the movie should be maintained.
