Sajid Khan says his ‘Himmatwala’ will be different

Director Sajid Khan, who is going to remake the Jeetendra-Sridevi hit ‘Himmatwala’, says he would present the movie with a different take.

I am making ‘Himmatwala’ again. In 2013, the film will complete 30 years. Forget about today’s generation, even two generations-old would not know about this film. It is not a classic film like ‘Mughal-E-Azam’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Deewar’, but was blockbuster movie.

Sajid said.

My take on Himmatwala is different. There will be some elements from the old movie. The film is re-written and not a remake. For two months I have been re-writing it… first time someone would have spent so much time on re-writing a remake. I have grown up watching this film…have seen it 36 times.

Sajid said.

We have finalised Ajay Devgn for the lead role. But haven’t decided the heroine.

he added. The actor-director says the 1983 film coined several phrases and words like “PT dance”. The songs were popular and so was the dancing of jumping jack – Jeetendra.

But Ajay is not known for his dancing skills and Sajid says,

Ajay will not be dancing. I know what I am making… I am making a proper entertainment film with lots of action.

Reportedly, Sajid might even rope in Sridevi and Jeetendra for the remake, albeit not in the lead
