Amitabh Bachchan, who performed the famous policeman Vijay in Prakash Mehra’s ‘Zanjeer’ in 1973, will not be appearing in a cameo role in the remake.
The newest version Zanjeer is directed by Apoorva Lakhani which actors south Indian actor Ram Charan Teja and also features Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt in lead characters.
Reports stated that the team members of the movie were quite serious to get Amitabh to do a cameo but to no effect. Big B’s other commitments have prevented him from accepting the proposal and showing in the remake film as a senior policeman.
When approached director Apoorva Lakhia revealed that although it would be a great honor for any filmmaker to have India’s most famous actor in his movie, Big B wouldn’t be performing a character in Zanjeer.
