'Himmatwala' stars Ajay Devgn & Tammannah

Ajay Devgn has put on his dancing shoes and this time it is to bring the most popular number ‘Tathaiya Tathaiya’ from the 1980۪s back for his upcoming film ‘Himmatwala’.

Directed by Sajid Khan, the duo have left no stone unturned to recreate the aura of the original song and give their audiences a chance to relive the magic which was created by superstar Jeetendra and Sridevi back in the 1980۪s.

Devgun said, “It is one of the most popular numbers from the 80۪s. Right from the sets to the costumes and the choreography, everything has been perfectly recreated.”

When quizzed Khan about the comparison which people would make between the original and his version he said, “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 Jeetendra۪s image as a dancer was strong at that time.”

B-Town’s famous choreographer, Farah Khan, who has given the dance moves went on to say, “I was not sure whether Ajay would be able to match Jeetendra۪s steps, but the entire unit broke into applause after he gave his first take.”

‘Himmatwala’ is directed by Sajid Khan, starring superstar Ajay Devgn and starlet from the South, Tammanah. The film is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and is set to hit the theatres on Friday 29th March 2013.
