Chennai :Filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia who made films like "Shootout at Lokhandwala" is set to remake Amitabh Bachchan starrer "Zanjeer", and the film will go on floors in April.

"My film starts from April 20 so I am going to start working on it, it is the remake of 'Zanjeer' and next week I am going to shoot for an ad in Thailand," Lakhia told IANS on the sidelines of the semi-finals of Celebrity Cricket League. The filmmaker was here to play for Sohail Khan's Mumbai Heroes.

The filmmaker has roped in Southern superstar Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja, who will step into the shoes of Amitabh for the remake. Ram Charan is already an icon for Southern fans. His film "Magadheera" has become one of the biggest hits of all times in the Telugu industry

The 1973 classic, also starred Jaya Bhaduri and Pran, played a pivotal role in Amitabh's career. This film not only catapulted him to fame, it also gave Amitabh the title of "angry young man" at that time.
