Could not show Pran the remake of `Zanjeer`: Amit Mehra
Mumbai: Producer Prakash Mehra`s son Amit Mehra who is remaking his father`s hit film ‘Zanjeer’ Friday said he was shocked to hear about veteran actor Pran`s death and upset that now he will not be able to show him the remake`s final cut.
"This is a very sad news I was very fond of him. I went to meet him before casting soneone for the role played by him in `Zanjeer`. He was very happy that Sanjay Dutt did the role. I had promised him to show the film but unfortunately I couldn`t," Mehra said.
He said he was planning to feature a guest appearance by Pran in the remake but could not do due to his health.
"I wanted him to come on sets for a small shot but his health was not permitting. He was not keeping well so we couldn`t do that."
Pran, 93, died away at Mumbai`s Leelavati Hospital Friday night.
