The crew of Apoorva Lakhia's Zanjeer is said to have placed a Rs.500 bet on actors Ram Charan Teja and Priyanka Chopra, who are busy brushing up their Hindi and Telugu diction respectively.
Priyanka with Ram Charan: Apart from being the remake of the superhit 1973 film, Zanjeer is creating a buzz for its pairing. Ram Charan is all set for his Bollywood debut by stepping into Big B's shoes. He will be romancing Priyanka Chopra, who will be seen in another Amitabh Bachchan remake after Don and Agneepath. This pairing has a very raw appeal to it.
"Zanjeer", the remake of the 1973 film of the same name, is being simultaneously shot in Hindi and Telugu.
Southern actor Ram Charan is working hard to perfect his Hindi diction for his Bollywood debut, while Priyanka is trying to get a grip on the southern diction.
While they are both trying to help each other, a source says that post pack-up, both the actors spend two to three hours brushing up their dialogue delivery.
The source says members of the film's crew have laid a bet of Rs.500 on the two actors, as who would forget their dialogues first.
This fun game has been instrumental in helping them deliver their dialogues perfectly as the two superstars have taken it up as a task and keep pulling each other's leg on the matter.
Co-produced by Reliance Entertainment, Amit Mehra and Flying Turtle Films, "Zanjeer" will release in summer 2013.
