Apoorva Lakhia’s action fiesta ‘Zanjeer’ also has a Telugu version ‘Thoofan’ which will release along with Zanjeer on the 6th of September 2013 in the South!! It is interesting to note that both the films were shot simultaneously, with Ram Charan and Priyanka Chopra. Sanjay Dutt is playing the role of Pran in Zanjeer while Srihari is playing Pran’s role in Thoofan. Sanjay and Srihari both would come on the same day for the shoot but their call time would be different. Apoorva would first shoot with Sanjay and rest of the cast. After the scene was over, Sanjay would go back and Srihari would come on the sets and enact the same scene with the cast. At first, the unit used to have the scripts in Hindi and later scripts changed to Telugu. They had scripts written in Hindi, Telugu and English and it needed a lot of planning and coordination as both the films’ scenes had to be shot on the same day. Sometimes it did get confusing, but since Apoorva knew what exactly he wanted, it helped in speeding up the project.
