Amitabh Bachchan received the tag of angry young man with the film Zanjeer made by Prakash Mehra in 1973.
Now, Amit Mehra, son of Prakash Mehra, wants to remake Zanjeer which will be a modern take on the original. He discussed the script with Amitabh Bachchan, who approved the idea. Amit is now in talks with a top corporate production house to launch the film. The director and actors have not yet been finalized.
Zanjeer remake will be the second such project being made by the son of the original film maker, after Karan Johar’s remake of his father Yash Johar’s Agneepath.
