Sajid Khan recreates `Tathaiya tathaiya` magic with ‘Himmatwala’ Ajay Devgn
New Delhi: Filmmaker Sajid Khan has recreated the entire setting and look of popular song ‘Tathaiya tathaiya’ from 1983 movie ‘Himmatwala’, for its modern-day remake.
The song was picturised on Jeetendra and Sridevi in the original movie. It will now see Ajay Devgn grooving a la Bollywood`s Jumping Jack alongside actress Tamannaah.
The song was recently shot in Mumbai. Ajay feels the song for the new ‘Himmatwala’ is a perfect replica of the original.
"It is one of the most popular numbers from the 1980s. Right from the sets to the costumes and the choreography, everything has been perfectly recreated," Ajay said in a statement.
Director Sajid Khan is confident that he has done complete justice to the original movie, and says he doesn`t mind comparisons between the movies.
"I want people to make comparisons because I have done justice to the original. Of course, it will be unfair to compare Ajay to Jeetendra, especially since Jeetendra`s image as a dancer was strong at that time," Sajid said in a statement.
Recently, it was revealed that actress Sonakshi Sinha will shoot a disco number "Thank god it`s Friday" in the movie.
The movie is expected to release March 29.
