Ram Charan and Priyanka Chopra’s Rs.500 bet!
We all know that Apoorva Lakhia’s much anticipated film Zanjeer which stars southern superstar Ram Charan opposite B-Town’s leading lady Priyanka Chopra is simultaneously being shot in Hindi & Telugu.
While on one hand Priyanka has mastered the art of delivering dialogues in Hindi, on the other side Ram Charan is working very hard to perfect his Hindi diction.
In the same way Ram Charan, being a master in Telugu cinema is very well-versed with the language while Priyanka is yet to get it perfectly.
A source present on the sets informs us that both ‘PC & RC’, as they are fondly called, have been of great help to each other as they both are stuck in similar situation.
News has it that every day after pack-up the co-stars would spend 2 to 3 hours brushing up their language skills helping each other with their respective languages.
An insider tells us that members of the crew have now placed a bet of Rs. 500 on the two actors as to who would forget their dialogues first i.e. Priyanka in Telugu or Ram in Hindi. And at the end of the shoot, winner takes all!
Apparently, this little game has been instrumental in helping them deliver their dialogues perfectly as the two superstars have taken it up as a task and keep pulling each other’s leg on this topic. No conclusion has been reached yet as both PC and RC have managed to hold their own in the said languages.
Now to know who’s mastered the art of which language we’ll just have to wait for them to wrap-up the film.
Produced by Reliance Entertainment, Amit Mehra and Flying Turtle Films, Zanjeer is set to hit theatres this summer.
