Himmatwala is not an exact copy: Tamannah
Southern actor Tamannaah says her Bollywood debut Himmatwala may be described as a remake, but it is not an exact copy of the 1983 film of the same name because director Sajid Khan has altered the original script.
“The film might come with the tag of a remake, but when you see the film, you will notice that Sajid has completely rewritten the script. Except for a few things that have been taken from the original, the way characters are dealt with is completely different,” says the 23-year-old.
“For instance, Ajay’s character in the film is a street fighter but in the original Jeetuji’s (Jeetendra) character was en engineer. So, I don’t feel the sense of comparison will be as strong once the film comes out,” she adds.
