Arjun Rampal was initially selected, as he reprised another iconic role played by Pran in Don, in its remake by Farhan Akhtar. However, since the shooting schedule for Zanjeer remake is re-cast to suit Ram Charan to shoot for his two Telugu films also, Arjun has to opt out, as he has given the dates to Nikhil Advani’s film. He was to shoot in July-August.
In the Zanjeer remake, Sanjay Dutt and Ram Charan have a shirtless fist-to-fist fight. Director Son of Sardaar is on record saying the script for the remake is completely re-written though the principal characters remain the same.
