Sajid plans 'Himmatwala' sequel
Mumbai: Bollywood Director Sajid Khan, who is quite confident about the remake version of his recent project 'Himmatwala', now wants to make a sequel.
'Himmatwala' is a remake of 1983 hit film starring Jeetendra and Sridevi. Sajid is remaking the film with Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn and Tamannaaah, an actress from the south Indian film industry.
"If the audience like the film, if the film does exceptionally well, if the producers put pressure for it (sequel) and if we get dates of Ajay...we would do it," Sajid told reporters here at the first trailer launch of 'Himmatwala'.
The makers unveiled the first look of the film in the iconic and oldest single screen theatre Gaiety Galaxy in suburban Bandra.
The remake version is also set in the 80s and will see Ajay reprising the role of Jeetendra while Tamannaaah will step in the role of Sridevi.
"It is not a remake exactly. We have bought the rights of two songs - 'Taaki o taaki' and 'Tathaiya Tathaiya'. The film is based in 1980s and will show Ajay Devgn like never before," Sajid said.
This is first time Sajid has dabbled in genre of action.
"It is the first time I have made action-drama film. Earlier I had made 'Heyy Baby' which was a comedy-drama and 'Housefull' and 'Housefull 2' both were out-an-out comedies," he said.
On reports that Sridevi and Jeetendra will do a cameo in the film, Sajid said, "There is no cameo appearance of Sridevi and Jeetendra.
"'Himmatwala' will be my biggest hit till now. It will be among the top three hit films of 2013. I will never make flop films, as I want to make entertaining films...want audience to be happy while watching it," Sajid claimed.
The film will hit the theaters on March 29 this year.
