The cast of the Zanjeer remake is apparently in place.

The film that made Amitabh Bachchan a superstar overnight will play in theatres once again, with a younger cast.
 
Here's a look at the actors who are rumoured to take over the original characters. Will they be a perfect fit? Click through the slide show, and vote for the cast.
 
Ram Charan Teja as Amitabh Bachchan's Inspector Vijay

Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan Teja will make his Bollywood debut with Zanjeer.

Bachchan played an honest inspector Vijay, who is haunted by the memories of his parents' death and wants to take revenge on their killer.

Zanjeer was the turning point in Amitabh's career, and established him as the Angry Young Man of the Indian cinema.

Jaya Bachchan, then Bhaduri, played Mala -- a street performer and key witness to a traffic accident caused by Teja's gang members that leaves several children dead.
 
She takes a bribe and does not identify the culprit. But when Inspector Vijay takes her to the morgue and shows her the bodies, she realises her mistake, donates the bribe money to an orphanage and identifies the culprit.

Priyanka has been cast in most Amitabh remakes like Don and Agneepath, and is rumoured to play Jaya's role here.
