"We have finished the first schedule for the film. Now the second schedule will start from September. Priyanka and Arjun Rampal will join the crew then," Lakhia told IANS.
"We are planning to finish the shoot of 'Zanjeer' by November, and it is scheduled for release in 2013," he added.
"We shot few scenes with Mahie, who is playing Mona Darling and Prakash Raj, who is playing a negative role. It was a wonderful experience shooting with them. Both are unbelievable actors.
"Mahie is looking very sexy and modern in the film," said Lakhia, who has earlier helmed movies like "Shootout at Lokhandwala" and "Mission Istanbul".
