It is a well-known fact that Apoorva Lakhia's remake of Zanjeer is being shot in Hindi as well as Telugu and this has caused the crew-members to indulge in some good-natured betting as far as the main leads of the movie are concerned.
'Zanjeer' Remake Crew Bet Money On Ram Charan Teja, Priyanka Chopra!Movie Talkies – Mon 14 Jan, 2013 12:00 AM IST
South superstar Ram Charan Teja, who is making his Bollywood debut with the remake of Zanjeer opposite Priyanka Chopra, is known to be not as fluent in Hindi, whereas Piggy Chops, as she is fondly called, is not quite familiar with Telugu. On getting to know this unique situation, it seems that members of the unit have bet a sum of Rs. 500 to see which actor would fumble in their dialogues first, while shooting for the language they are not familiar with. Needless to say, this has infact encouraged both Chopra and Teja to 'pull up their socks' to avoid losing the bet. A source said, "Apparently, this little game has been instrumental in helping them deliver their dialogues perfectly as the two superstars have taken it up as a task and keep pulling each other's leg on this topic! No conclusion has been reached yet as both Chopra and Teja have managed to hold their own in the said languages!"
Apart from the two actors, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill.
