Katrina, Deepika and Anushka in the running for Himmatwala remake

Tushar Joshi (BOMBAY TIMES; April 19, 2012)

 

Sajid Khan’s next film will be a remake of the Sridevi-Jeetendra starrer Himmatwala (1983). While Ajay Devgn has been signed as the male lead, the leading lady’s job is still up for grabs. The three actresses on Khan’s wishlist include Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma.

One of the highlights of the original film was the song Naino Mein Sapna, a song that the director wants to retain in the remake. Khan has bought the song’s rights and wants sister Farah Khan to choreograph it. At the moment, there’s no frontrunner and any of the three actresses could land the part played by Sridevi. An insider reveals, “None of these girls have been paired opposite Ajay in the past, so it will be a fresh casting. Anushka and Katrina have expressed interest in the project. Deepika has an edge as she’s worked with Sajid in Housefull, but the final decision will be made in the coming weeks. The remake will have the same vibe and setting of the 80s film, and the songs will be choreographed keeping in mind the colourful setting of the time. The song will have a huge budget and will be shot lavishly.”

Sajid confirms that he wants to cast one of the three actresses, saying, “Yes, it’s true, but for professional reasons I wouldn’t like to name any one actress.”

Amar Butala, the creative head of the film, adds, “We have bought the rights of the superhit song. With Sajid’s madness and Farah’s choreography, this song in the remake will be the most anticipated tracks in a long time.”

Sajid plans to add his own spin to the track, like he did with the Laawaris song Apni Toh Jaise Taise for Housefull.

NAINO MAIN SAPNA TRIVIA
• The song had the maximum number of background dancers used in a film from the ’80s

• Sridevi and Jeetendra spent weeks rehearsing to get the steps right, as they had to be completely in sync with each other

• Colourful props like matkas and giant sculptures were kept ready weeks in advance

• Jeetendra has admitted that this has been his most fun song to shoot, ever

      A director o makes people laugh out by snake biting/scratching a center point isn’t a worth calling a director… Even he needs a laughing gas 4 people to laugh ..

    Katrina and Ajay wont look good together. I had rather opt for an actress like tamanna. Damn good and damn hot!

    ____________________________________________
    Hit matters? Classics and script dnt?
    Kyu Akki fans ko collection se kitna share milne vaala hai?
    Mujhe to lagta tha Hit/flop is headache of producer and distributors.. yahan to ulti ganga beh rahi hai

  10. Rockyy

    Facts padke fatt gayi.. Nw listen acc to ur theory bodyguard ws 2011’s biggest grosser.. So siddique( bg’s director )ws 2011’s hit director n hw ws d mvie??? Masterpiece isn’t it.?? Tu jo kahega woh NG ki headline banegi kya??

  11. Delight44

    Vaise kisi ko collection ya Hit /Flop ka data nahi pata, perception matters and Akki continues his cartoonish image with Housefull 2…..

    Bas kisi se Akki ki last Hit pooch li to i am sure 10 me se 9 sar khuja khuja kar ganje zaroor ho jaengay

  12. Waseem_Glasgow

    Bodyguard and Ready really worst films but i enjoyed it then in both films Salman acted really bad but people love him and you know the result…u guys discussing just rubbish things…Sajid Khan is not a great director but he hits the hattrick …but akki haters wanna just leg pulling of Akki…Remember Srk worked with great directors that,s why he is …in case of akki he makes directors great with his films…just tell me one thing just count on your finger srk,s those hit films which are without great banner and great director then u,ll reply with RA.1, Ashoka and toooo many…so srk is just a cool air without such banners and directors…if Housefull2 is superhit bcoz of akki,s great comic timing and expression …just read all Housefull 2,s reviews …i m sure thing about Akki will be common from every reviewer…

    1. Rockyy

      @waseem: i had seen many of ur comments.. N d biggest prob of u is dat u r frightened of ‘khans’.. In ur almost evri cmt u drag evri khan 4 comparison wid akki … 4m Wer did Srk , salman n akki came into this.. D thing is k sajid is nt amongst d g8t directors despite of his mvies collecting well at box office..

  13. AwesomeAkshay

    maybe sajid is not a great director but he is definitely good enough to be among the best and sajid made a comedy so he may use whatever he wants to make people laugh.

  14. Aditya007

    haters jo hote hai unko koi batt achhhi nhi lgti.

    Filhal housefull2 ready 1000 guna achhhi hai.

    Aur plz NG pr ye Deshwad na start kre.

  15. Action

    For me top 5 commercial director of today are-
    1. Rakesh Roshan
    2. Raju Hirani
    3. Karan Johar
    4. Rohit Shetty
    5. Sajid Khan

  16. Serenzy

    @action

    even Bazmee is there…

    Milan Luthria,mohit suri,abbas mustan,priyan,rajkumar santoshi are some others along wid ur list.

    I have always had a certain liking for Satish Kaushik’s films also…Teree Saang,MKKH etc.

    Aziz Mirza is another director who lost his way post 90’s.
    Raju ban gaya….,yess boss,chalte chalte were a ‘good’ watch.

  17. Prashant

    raju hirani is miles ahead of sajid.. Imo
