Bouncing back quickly from the debacle of Zanjeer and its Telugu version Thoofan, Ram Charan will now team up with Salman Khan for a film that would be produced by Salman Khan.
Ram Charan flew from Hyderabad on Tuesday to meet Salman. The two had a hush-hush meeting over lunch at Salman’s home in Mumbai where it was decided that the two stars would come together for a film. Sohail Khan was also present at the meeting.
When contacted Ram Charan admitted, “Yes, I was in Mumbai. I had come to meet Salman. We are working on a project together.”
Ram Charan gives Salman a clean chit in the whole Zanjeer copyright controversy where Salman’s father writer Salim Khan joined hands with his former partner Javed Akhtar to sue the new Zanjeer makers for copyright infringement
Says Ram defensively, “Salman really couldn’t intervene in the matter. It was a matter involving the Writers’ Association. He couldn’t say anything beyond a point. Even Salim Khan Saab was very supportive. It’s just that he had to stand by Javed Akhtar Saab, or the writers’ community would have been offended. But to be honest they were fighting for a film that wasn’t anything like theirs.”
Ram Charan seems to have bounced back after the double debacle last week.Jokes the affable star, “Apoorva Lakhia and I need to sit down and make a list of the 10 reasons why Zanjeer didn’t work. It really doesn’t matter anymore. I’ve already moved on to my next project in Telugu. It’s called Yevadu. And it releases for Dussehra on October 10. That’s a full-on action thriller. My fans like to see me fight. They rejected Thoofanbecause most of the time I was just angry and seething silently. That’s not how they like to see me.”
Now with the project with Salman happening, Ram Charan is upbeat about his Hindi career. “I’ve nowhere to go but ahead since I’ve touched rock-bottom with Zanjeer. Actually I had things much too easy so far. My life and my career were like a fairytale. I think I needed to be jolted.”

Bigg Boss season 7 new entrant Asif Azam looks super impressed with the show’s host Salman Khan. The supermodel says, Salman’s life is the biggest example of survival in tough times.
"Salman Khan is an icon. I am looking forward to meeting him. I think there is so much to learn from him. Even after going through so many ups and downs in his life, the man has stood there. He has struggled a lot to reach where he’s today. His life is the biggest example of survival in tough times. I think even two minutes of conversation with him is enough for me. He is the most bankable star today and a great entertainer," said Asif before entering the ‘Bigg Boss’ house.
The Bangladeshi lad, who is amongst India’s fittest male supermodel, says Salman is one of the first Bollywood actors who brought body building to India, “I think he has a great physique and he really inspired a lot of youngsters to take up body building seriously. He is one of those actors who brought fitness to India,” concludes Asif.
