Hyderabad: Veteran Telugu actor Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Teja is all set to make his Bollywood debut with a remake of 1973 blockbuster ‘Zanjeer’. The 27 year old actor will be playing the iconic character of Vijay, portrayed by legendary Amitabh Bachchan in the Prakash Mehra production.
Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “The 27-year-old Ram Charan is already a youth icon in the south Indian film industry. His film ‘Magadheera’ has become one of the biggest hits of all times in the Telugu industry. In his five year long film career, Ram Charan has done just five films and is known to be extremely choosy. He has finally decided to work on the remake of ‘Zanjeer’, which will go on floors in the next couple of months.”
Teja’s spokesperson confirmed the news to the tabloid and said, “He has given his nod to the project. However, we would like the producers to make the official announcement for the film.”
Looks like Bollywood is keen on erasing language barriers to widen its horizon.
Here’s welcoming Ram to B-Town.
