The Magadheera star, who was supposed to make his Bollywood debut in Faruk Kabir's Welcome To The Jungle before shelving the movie, is keen to star in the remake of Zanjeer. The actor through his close aides recently approached the sons of late director Prakash Mehra, as the rights of the film are with his family. Ram Charan Teja will announce his plans in two months, says a report.
It is said that Ram Charan Teja wants to make his debut as an action hero rather than lover boy characters. Hence, the actor has chosen Zanjeer. Sources further add that if things fall into place, the Chiruta actor will be seen in the role of a honest cop named Vijay, which was played by Amitabh Bachchan in the yesteryear film. The story of the film is about a police officer, who suffers a six-month jail sentence on false charges, seeking revenge against his enemies.
Meanwhile, office-bearers of Prakash Mehra have claimed that many top filmmakers have approached them for the remake rights of Zanjeer but refused to reveal their names. They will announce once they sell the rights of the Bollywood film.
