Ram Charan banking on heroine star power

Ram Charan’s Bollywood debut is just few days away from now. He decided to do Zanjeer remake as his debut film in Hindi. Director Apoorva Lakhia believes that Charan could be the new ‘angry young man’ of Bollywood. This film is going to be made simultaneously in Telugu and with a whopping budget of 70 crore rupees.
With so much money at stake, it is going to be a huge gamble for Zanjeer makers as Charan doesn’t have any image or star power to shoulder the film at the box office. So the producer and director are trying to get the padding right. A star heroine is compulsory for this film to draw the attention of majority audience.
They have tried to rope in Deepika Padukone as the female lead, but the actress is too busy to adjust dates for Zanjeer. The latest we hear is the makers of this movie are in talks with another top actress Priyanka Chopra. She is yet to give a nod to the movie. Zanjeer won’t make it to sets until or unless they find a bankable star heroine.
