Along with the superb acting of Ramcharan and the directorial talent of Rajamouli, presence of Sreehari as Sher Khan was an additional boost to the kicking success of 'Magadheera.' In fact, the scenes of 100 Men Episode stood as a dream visualization on Telugu cinema majorly due to some fantabulous emotional expressions from Sreehari. Director Apoorva Lakhia, who is quite busy with making of 'Zanjeer' wanted Sreehari in his movie to continue the winning sentiment.
So, a special role was created for Real Star and he will be seen exclusively in Telugu version. Of course, Ramcharan too liked the idea of Apoorva and gave an immediate nod. Above all the rumors on productional hurdles faced by producer Amit Mehra in taking forward this remake of 'Zanjeer,' there are clear reports that next schedule of this prestigious project will re-start in January of next year as 'Naayak' will be wrapped up for release in second week.
