Look who is making her re-entry in Bollywood with Himmatwala remake? Tamanna also known as Tamanna Bhatia is on board for Sajid Khan’s next -- a remake of Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer. The popular south actress will romance Ajay Devgan in the film.
Sajid Khan, who has given a hattrick at the box office with Housefull 2, has confirmed the casting of Tamanna as the female lead opposite Ajay Devgan in the remake of 1983 BO hit Himmatwala which was directed by K Raghavendra Rao.
Initially, actresses like Katrina Kaif and even Anushka Sharma were considered for the role, but since both the actresses didn’t have dates, Sajid opted for Kajal Aggarwal; the actress was seen with Ajay in Singham and the movie turned out to be a blockbuster. Unfortunately Kajal, too, was busy with other projects. So, finally the movie was offered to Tamanna and she was more than happy to accept it.
Tamanna will step into the stilettos of Sridevi for the movie. In the original Himmatwala, Sridevi was seen a beautiful tyrant brandishing a whip, but the remake has an entirely different characterization for the heroine.
However, Tamanna will indeed dance to the remix of the popular song of the original -- Nainon mein sapna. We can imagine Tamanna dancing like Sridevi, but Ajay Devgan as Jeetendra. Ahem..Ahem!
