"We are planning to finish the shoot of  Zanjeer by November, and it is scheduled for release in 2013," he added.

The director recently shot few scenes in Bangkok with Mahie Gill and Prakash Raj.

"We shot few scenes with Mahie, who is playing Mona Darling and Prakash Raj, who is playing a negative role. It was a wonderful experience shooting with them. Both are unbelievable actors.
