Priyanka Chopra will be seen performing an item number which is apparently called Pinky in the remake of Amitabh Bachchan’s 1973 film, Zanjeer.
“I have done a song for Priyanka in Zanjeer that is being choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. You will get to hear it in say two months’ time when the trailer of Zanjeer will be out,” Mamta said
Acharya has earlier directed item numbers like Halkat Jawaani and Chikni Chameli.
This movie will mark the debut of Ram Charan Teja, south Indian actor and son of southern megastar-turned politician Chiranjeevi. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill.
Amit Mehra was given the green signal in the battle over the remake of the 1973 film Zanjeer by Bombay high court. Now we hear reports that the Supreme Court has issued a stay order on the film’s release.
The Supreme court has given orders to the arbitrator to complete the arbitration proceedings expeditiously and positively within the next six weeks. This order comes in the wake of Amit’s brothers, Sumeet and Puneet, approaching it against the HC order.
For those unaware, Mehra’s Zanjeer had problems when his brothers Sumeet and Puneet ended the contract that gave him the remake rights in the first place citing non-payment of dues.
While Arbaaz has expressed his views in the case saying, approval of Salim-Javed for the remake is a must.
“It’s important to take consent while making a remake and more so if the person has the rights of the film. There are times when writers either relinquish or give out their rights. In this (Zanjeer) case the remake rights were with dad and Javed saheb… so if this film had to be made so at least their approval should have been taken,” said Arbaaz.
The Zanjeer remake which features Ram Charan, Priyanka Chopra, Sanjay Dutt, Sri Hari, Mahie Gill and Prakash Raj was supposedly scheduled for a June release.
