When Zanjeer Director Realised Cherry’s Stardom
Mega Power Star Ram Charan Teja‘s debut film Zanjeer‘s remake is getting ready for grand release on Sep 6th. Film featured Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt along with many stars well known in Bollywood.
Director Apurva Lakhia revealed that he was against casting Bollywood hero in lead role since pressure would be more on them with invariable comparisons with Big B Amitabh Bachchan.
He said he didnot realise that Ram Charan enjoys immense stardom down South and only when they witnessed lakhs thronging outside shooting spot in Hyderabad, he realised his stardom.
Apurva Lakhia said ” Ihad seen Ram Charan in Magadheera and had taken up Zanjeer on the condition that I would work with him. I did not want to take anyone from the Hindi film industry, as it would be too much pressure for the actor, as his work would be compared to Mr Bachchan’s. He took a year to say yes to me and was clear that he was doing a film just for the kick of it and that he was a superstar in Telugu cinema, whose flops also made 48 crore. We did not realise his star power while shooting with him in Mumbai, but when we saw over a lakh people outside his shoot in Hyderabad, we knew there was a superstar in the film.”
