The actress Priyanka Chopra, who is sharing the screen space with Ram Charan Teja in Zanjeer, was not aware of her co-star’s popularity down South before she visited Hayderabad.
She was surprised to see Ram’s fan following while shooting for Zanjeer.
While promotion of the film, Priyanka said; “I didn’t know Ram much before Zanjeer. I was not aware of his popularity until we visited Hyderabad for the film’s shoot. His around 300 fans always used to follow us wherever we would shoot in the city. He is a superstar and has got loyal fans,”
Ram, Priyanka and director Apoorva Lakhia turned up two-hour late for the press conference with media threatening to walk out. They later apologized and blamed the delay on miscommunication.
“We sincerely apologise for the delay. It’s all due to a big communication gap in terms of time. We were told some other time. We promise to make up,” the Priyanka in a statement.
“Our Zanjeer is the re-imagined version of the previous film. One cannot remake the original film. We just took an inspiration from the previous film,” she added.
Priyanka is shooting for Mary Kom biopic besides promoting Zanjeer.
