Item songs have almost become a staple in Bollywood films, and Amit Mehra, who is producing the remake of the 1973 film Zanjeer, too plans to cash in on the trend by including two item numbers, of which one will feature actor Mahie Gill.
“We will definitely have item numbers in the film. In fact, we have decided to go with two item numbers,” said Mehra.
“The songs are part of the script and they will be situational. One item song will be featured on Mahie and for the other, we are yet to decide whom to cast,” he added.
Mahie will also essay Bindu’s iconic role of Mona Darling in the Zanjeer remake, which will be directed by Apoorva Lakhia. The film will feature southern superstar Chiranjeevi’s son Ram Charan Teja and Priyanka Chopra in the lead.
Mehra is extremely confident about Teja’s acting skills, and feels he will do justice to the role. “When I saw his films, I decided to cast him. He is the best guy to launch. He is fluent in Hindi as well. I am sure he will justify the role,” said Mehra. Priyanka will join the crew of the movie by May end. “Priyanka is busy with other commitments. She is doing the film and will join the crew by the end of next month. We are shooting the scenes with other actors right now,” he said.
