Arjun to essay Pran role in Zanjeer remake

Mumbai: Arjun Rampal, who would be reprising the role of Pran in the remake of `Zanjeer`, says, he would like to do something special for the veteran actor, who played the iconic character of Sher Khan in the original.

"I haven`t started shooting for `Zanjeer`. Once I finish Prakash Jha`s film then I would go for a holiday with family and then start `Zanjeer`. All I can say is that I have a cameo kind of part in `Zanjeer`..I have 10-12 days of work in this film. I play Pran`s sahib`s part," Arjun told reporters here, on Wednesday. "It is a wonderful part. I will try and do it with the best of my ability," he said.

In the original, Pran, played the role of a Pathan and had a typical look with long hair and kohl. "I don`t know what my look would be in the film. I really don`t know. I want to do something special for Pran saheb as I loved the role when I first saw it when I was a kid," Arjun said.

The remake version of `Zanjeer` is directed by Apoorva Lakhia and stars Priyanka Chopra, Ram Charan Teja, Arjun Rampal, Prakash Raj and Mahi Gill. "The script of this film is really nice. Apoorva (director) is a good friend and he has got his angle?his take for it (film). I am looking forward to it," Arjun said.
