Ram Charan Teja, who was apprehensive to step into the shoes of Amitabh Bachchan in the remake of 1973 superhit 'Zanjeer', says he is not expecting too much from the movie.

Ram hopes he gets 10 per cent of what Bachchan got from this film.

"I don't expect too much. It was intimidating, to get into role of Big B for this film. There was a bit of pressure and it was difficult to handle. In a way when you take up a film like this, certain amount of pressure should be there as it makes you more serious, disciplined and responsible. It worked to my advantage," Ram said.

Amitabh's role as Vijay Khanna, an aggressive cop, acquired cult status and established him as the angry young man of Bollywood, giving him his first blockbuster.

The Telugu actor also happened to meet the 70-year-old superstar on the first day of his shoot for the film, helmed by Apoorva Lakhia.
