Telugu superstar-turned-politician K. Chiranjeevi Monday said he was proud of his actor son Ramcharan Teja for doing a bilingual movie, a re-make of the 1973 Hindi classic "Zanjeer".

The Union Tourism Minister said his son's achievement has enhanced his pride as a father. He was speaking at a function organised here to release the promos of "Toofan", the Telugu version of "Zanjeer".

Ramcharan and Priyanka Chopra are playing the lead roles in both the versions. Sanjay Dutt will be seen as Sher Khan in the Hindi version, while Srihari is donning the same role for "Toofan".

Ramcharan, Priyanka, Srihari, director Apoorva Lakhia, producer Amit Mehra and others attended the function.

Chiranjeevi recalled that it was after 13 years in Telugu cinema that he got a Hindi movie "Pratibandh", in which he played an angry police officer, while his son Ramcharan got this opportunity very early in his career.

"It took me 13 years to do a Hindi film, but Charan has achieved the feat so soon. I'm so proud that he has done a Hindi film so early in his career," said Chiranjeevi.

The superstar is confident that the bilingual movie would prove a big hit as it has all the ingredients of a good commercial movie.

"I saw some clippings of 'Toofan'. The acting, body language, actions and expressions are fantastic. The film will rock," said Chiranjeevi.

He was happy that Ramcharan is playing the role of legendary actor Amitabh Bacchan in both the versions.

Ramcharan said it was a challenge.

The young actor, who began his career in Telugu films six years ago, said he was initially reluctant.

"But when I heard the story, which has emotions and everything else, I was impressed. Later everything fell in place," he said

Sure- bribing comes natural to Chiranjeevi and his family so he probably used his influence to get his son this movie. Not that Charan is a bad actor, but there are better choices. Even if the film sucks, they're going to make it a hit and brag about it. Ugh, I hate star families and their monopoly over the film industry.
