Ram Charan Teja admits that his dad Chiranjeevi is jealous of him

Ram Charan Teja says his superstar father Chiranjeevi made him sign the remake of Zanjeer but is jealous of him because he could not get the opportunity to share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan.
“My father is a big fan of Amitabh Bachchan and always wanted to work or star in a remake of any of his film. But he didn’t get the opportunity. When I got the offer, he was happy and made me sign the film. He even said that he was jealous,” Ram said. 

Chiranjeevi stopped doing movies and forayed into Politics and now Ram Charan Teja will be carrying forward his legacy. And the young actor is not worried about being compared to Big B and believes both his projects are different.

“I looked at it as a script. When I visited the set I got the heat of the old Zanjeer but never felt pressurised. Nobody can be like Mr Bachchan. I got the offer two years ago. I was pretty scared to do the film but now I think I could not have asked for a better Bollywood debut,” he said.
