Sonu Sood to play Sher Khan in Zanjeer remake
After Arjun Rampalís denial, Amit Mehra, the producer of the remake of the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Zanjeer, Sonu Sood has been approached once again for playing the iconic role of Sher Khan in the film.
Confirming that he has been approached for the role, Sonu said, "Yes I have been approached for the role of Sher Khan. But nothing has been finalised yet. I have not confirmed the project on paper yet," Sonu told us.
It may be remembered that Pran had given a memorable performance as Sher Khan in Prakash Mehra's 1973 hit Zanjeer.
Even though there was a buzz that Sonu would reprise the role of Sher Khan, the makers promptly went ahead and finalised Arjun Rampal for the role. But later, as some date issues cropped up, Arjun backed out.
The remake version of the film has Telugu actor Ram Charan Teja playing the role that was reprised by Amitabh Bachchan while Priyanka Chopra will essay the role played by Jaya Bachchan.
The shooting for the remake, that also stars Prakash Raj and Mahie Gill, started in April this year.
