Filmmaker Sajid Khan, who has made movies such as Heyy Babyy, Housefull and Housefull 2, is very confident about the success of his upcoming film, Himmatwala (remake of the 1983 hit which stars Ajay Devgn and southern actor Tamannah).
“I am super confident about the film’s success. Yeh hit hai boss! I believe I have done justice to the original. However, the remake is not the same, it is my take on the original Himmatwala,” says the 41-year-old who recently unveiled the official trailer of the film on the sets of dance reality show, Nach Baliye 5, which he is co-judging with actor Shilpa Shetty and choreographer Terence Lewis.
On his reasons of choosing Ajay for the role, he says, “When I thought of the word ‘himmatwala’, I couldn’t think of anyone other that Ajay Devgn who could do justice to the role. He is a great actor and can portray emotions, anger and action effectively.”
About what’s next after Himmatwala, Sajid says, “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.”
Moving on to his personal life, Sajid, who is reportedly seeing actor Jacqueline Fernandez, says he still needs two years before he decides to get married. “I need at least two more years before I decide to get married,” he says.
