After quite a bit of back and forth, it is now confirmed that Sonu Sood will play the role of Sher Khan in Apoorva Lakhia’s remake of Zanjeer.Initially, Sanjay Dutt was supposed to take up the role, but news came later that Arjun Rampal had been finalised for it. However, even Arjun recently backed out of the movie citing date issues.
But now Ram Charan had intervened and convinced the makers to rope in Sonu Sood for the role. Charan felt Sonu will be apt for the role and his acquintance with the Telugu cinema will help the movie as it is a bilingual made both in Telugu and Hindi.Even though the actor is yet to do sign the dotted line, he had reportedly given his confirmation to the makers.
The movie had completed two schedules of shooting – One in Mumbai and the other in Bangkok. Priyanka Chopra is pairing up with Ram Charan in the movie which marks Charan’s debut in Bollywood.
