"In Hydrabad for 'Zanjeer'. Starting a new film always makes me nervous," Priyanka tweeted.
Amit Mehra is producing the film, which was originally made by his late father Prakash Mehra in 1973 with Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya in the lead roles.
In the remake, being directed by Apoorva Lakhia, southern star Ram Charan Teja and Priyanka are playing Vijay and Mala, respectively.
Farhan tweeted: "Priyanka Chopra, do you realise that this is the third official remake of Amitabh Bachchan you are in? Be careful you don't get typecast."
Earlier Priyanka had featured in the remakes of 1978 film "Don" and 1990 "Agneepath".
