Zanjeer is a 2013 Indian bilingual action-drama film directed by Apoorva Lakhia, shot simultaneously in Hindi and Telugu. It is a remake of the 1973 Hindi film of the same name. The film marked the Bollywood debut of Tollywood actor Ram Charanin the lead role along with Priyanka Chopra. Reliance BIG Entertainment bought worldwide distribution rights for ₹1.05 billion(US$16 million). An upright cop sees himself transferred innumerable times in five years. Will he succumb to the pressures of the administration or will he make his voice heard above the din? Review: Apoorva Lakhia's Zanjeer has many similarities to its four-decade old namesake Prakash Mehra's Zanjeer (1973) that breathed fire and brimstone. The original film earned Amitabh Bachchan the epithet 'angry young man' and made him world-famous. The 2013 action thriller brings Andhra icon Chiranjeevi's son, Ram Charan (also an Andhra superstar) to Bollywood. It retains the key plot points and the main characters are rechristened Vijay (Ram Charan), Mala (Priyanka Chopra), Sher Khan (Sanjay Dutt), Teja (Prakash Raj) and Mona (Mahie Gill) just like the original.
