Contrary to reports, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who played the iconic cop Vijay in Prakash Mehra's Zanjeer in 1973, won't be making an appearance in the remake by Apoorva Lakhani which stars south Indian actor Ram Charan Teja and also features Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt in lead roles.
Reportedly the film's team was very keen to get Big B to do a cameo but to no effect.
Amitabh Bachchan's other commitments prevented him from putting in a token appearance as a senior cop.
When contacted director Apoorva Lakhia said, "Although it would be an honour for any filmmaker to have India's most iconic actor in his film, Amitji won't be playing a role in Zanjeer."
