Priyanka Chopra has been signed to play the lead role in the remake of Zanjeer to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia. Priyanka‘s role would be a far cry from Jaya Bachchan‘s chakku-chureewali in the original Zanjeer.
Says a source, Priyanka will play a woman of today. She will be cast as a US-returned owner of a café. Though she will be dressed most glamorously, she won’t be doing any songs or item numbers.
Zanjeer‘s co-producer Amit Mehra confirmed the casting of Priyanka Chopra.
