For the remake version of megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 1973 film Zanjeer, Priyanka is performing an item number which is reportedly called Pinky.

"I have done a song for Priyanka in Zanjeer that is being choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. You will get to hear it in say two months' time when the trailer of Zanjeer will be out," Mamta said.


Acharya has earlier directed item numbers like Halkat Jawaani and Chikni Chameli.

Zanjeer, directed by Apoorva Lakhia, marks the Bollywood debut of Ram Charan Teja, South Indian actor and son of filmstar-turned-politician Chiranjeevi.

The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill.

Approval of Salim-Javed must for Zanjeer remake: Arbaaz Khan
Actor Arbaaz Khan, whose father Salim co-scripted the film, feels that it's important to take the consent of all the people who were part of the original while remaking a movie. The remake of the Amitabh Bachchan starrer has been in news regarding copyright and royalty issues. Both -- Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar -- who scripted the original, have been fighting for the intellectual rights of the new version.

"It's important to take consent while making a remake and more so if the person has the rights of the film. There are times when writers either relinquish or give out their rights. In this (Zanjeer) case the remake rights were with dad and Javed saheb... so if this film had to be made so at least their approval should have been taken," Arbaaz told PTI. READ STORY
