Having extricated the legally-challenged project from its producer Amit Mehra,Amit Mehra’s brothers Puneet and Sumeet Mehra are all set now go all out to promote Zanjeer ahead of its September release.
Finally,the first trailer of Zanjeer will be released on the internet this Friday (July 5).
“The Zanjeer team has so far been legally forbidden from any promotion and marketing. But now that Puneet and Sumeet have taken over Zanjeer to produce it under their father Prakash Mehra’s banner (Prakash Mehra Productions) the decks are cleared for a September release,” said a source close to the project.
Shedding light on Amit Mehra’s ouster from the project,the source said: “He brought it on himself. He kept telling the entire production team of Zanjeer that his brothers had no interest in the movie business when in fact Puneet and Sumeet were repeatedly requesting Amit to let them be a part of their father’s production house. You have to understand that the Mehra brothers are sitting on a goldmine,what with Prakash Mehra Saab’s blockbusters Muqaddar Ka Sikandar,Lawaaris,Sharaabi,Hera Pheri and Khoon Pasina waiting to be re-made.”
