Apoorva Lakhia shot Zanjeer in Hindi and Thoofan in Telugu simultaneously!!
We all know that Apoorva Lakhia’s much anticipated action fiesta ‘Zanjeer’ also has a telugu version ‘Thoofan’ which will release along with Zanjeer on 6th September, 2013 in South!!
But now we hear that Apoorva Lakhia shot both the films Zanjeer and Thoofan simultaneously!!
Along 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.
So Sanjay Dutt and Srihari both would shoot on the same day with Ram Charan and Priyanka Chopra.
A source close to the team said, “Sanjay sir and Srihari both would come on the same day for the shoot but their call time was different. Apoorva would 1st shoot with Sanjay sir and rest of the cast. After the scene was over, Sanjay sir would go back and Srihari would come on the sets and enact the same scene with the cast. So 1st we all used to have the scripts in Hindi and then later scripts changed to telugu. We 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 1 day. Sometimes it did get confusing but since Apoorva knew what exactly he wanted, it helped in speeding up the project.”
