First look: Ramcharan Teja in Zanjeer remake

By Hindustan Times

The first look of Telugu star Ramcharan Teja who's making a foray in Bollywood opposite Priyanka Chopra in Zanjeer remake is out. Teja, who is superstar Chiranjeevi's son, will play the role of cop Vijay, a silently seething social outcast.

"I'm working on my Hindi for sure. I've got a tutor to teach me the nuances. Waise meri Hindi utni buri nahin hai (Anyway, my Hindi is not that bad). But yes, it's a character who screams through his silence," Teja told IANS.

"So let's just say I'd let my silence speak louder than my words. That's how my director Apoorva Lakhia and I are working on my character," he added.

For now, Teja has larger concerns to deal with -- like stepping into megastar Amitabh Bachchan's shoes. Big B, as the latter is fondly called, played Vijay in the original film.

"So far dealing with being Chiranjeevi's son was a challenge enough. But that challenge is nothing when compared with what I face now. To get into the space of India's biggest star-actor is a prospect that I am not brooding over," said Teja.

But he isn't mulling over prospective comparison with the much senior Amitabh.

"If I think about how I'll be compared in our Zanjeer with Mr. Bachchan, I wouldn't be able to get into it. I've constantly lived under the shadow of comparisons.
