Mumbai, Nov. 3 -- Come 2012, if things work out well, the Amitabh Bachchanstarrer Zanjeer (1973) will don a new avatar. One of Bollywood's most iconic films, directed by the late Prakash Mehra, is all set to join the burgeoning list of Bollywood remakes.
Mehra's son Amit, who has refurbished the original script, will also relaunch his father's production company with this film. For the uninitiated, it was Zanjeer that earned Bachchan the 'angry young man' tag in Bollywood.
"I was working on something else when this idea hit me. I was like, 'why not remake Zanjeer?'" says Amit, adding that the basic undercurrent of the film will remain the same. "But it's going to be a modern take, not a copy. We've come up with a fresh tale."
