Director of Zanjeer, Apoorva Lakhia revealed the reason for having cast Ram Charan as the angry young protagonist in his film Zanjeer. The director said that he was all blown away after watching Charan in Magadheera, performing to his full quotient. He thought nobody else will be better suited to play that role except Charan. This is an interesting take, considering that Charan recently revealed in an interview that his father was responsible for having him signed Zanjeer, after having discussed with Big B. The film is all set to release on 6th of this month and the Telugu version is waiting in the cards to release in Andhra peacefully, amidst the angry protests. Ram Charan reprises the iconic role of Amitabh as Inspector Vijay in this much awaited sequel.
