After making a number of commercially successful films like Heyy Babyy, Housefull and Housefull 2, film-maker Sajid Khan is very confident about the success of his upcoming film Himmatwala (a remake of the 1983 hit) which stars Ajay Devgn and southern actor Tamannah.

“I am super confident about the film’s success. I believe I have done justice to the original. However, the remake is not the same, it is my take on the original Himmatwala,” said Sajid Khan

Moreover, Khan also said that only an actor of Ajay Devgn’s calibre could have done justice to the role. “When I thought of the word ‘himmatwala’, I couldn’t think of anyone other than Ajay Devgn who could do justice to the role. He is a great actor and can portray emotions, anger and action effectively,” he added.

After Himmatwala, Sajid Khan will be making another action thriller with Saif Ali Khan. “I am yet to finish a portion of Himmatwala. My next project will be with Saif Ali Khan and will most likely go on the floors by June,” informed Sajid Khan.
