What is it about classic Bollywood movies that everyone seems to be like on a crazy mission to revisit them. First, there was Shah Rukh Khan‘s Don and now Hrithik Roshan’s much-awaited Agneepath remake which has everyone raving about the killer previews. Next up is Ajay Devgn who has signed Vashu Bhagnani’s next which will be Sajid Khan’s next directorial venture after Housefull 2.
The buzz is that Ajay has hiked his fees and is charging a whopping 18 crores for this mega project which is supposedly based on the Jeetendra and Sridevi starrer Himmatwala. Sajid Khan, however has totally denied all such news of a remake and he says its an original script that he’s been working on for several months now.
Geez, I seriously want to see Bollywood script writers come up with something new for a change coz sometimes remakes can be disastrous (think We are Family which was supposed to be a Step Mom remake) And maybe, Himmatwala fans will be totally relieved when the originality does kick in.
