It’s always interesting to see who takes which role with the frequent remakes coming. But of late, the Southern Belles (i.e. South Indian actresses) have turned the tides in their favour with films like Singham, Chashme Buddoor and the latest, Himmatwala which will see Ajay Devgn in Jeetendra’s role.
After much deliberation and names like Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the mix, director Sajid Khan, with some friendly suggestion from lead actor Ajay, has zeroed in on the ‘Chand Jaisa Chehra’ actress – a fact confirmed by none other than Ajay’s business associate, Kumar Mangat. “Yes, it’s Tamannaah opposite Ajay in Himmatwala. The shooting starts in August. Ajay has Bol Bachchan on release and Son Of Sardar is almost complete. Himmatwala is the only other project he will start this year.”
Now the film is undergoing an upgrade but it’s believed Sri Devi’s feisty character will still have that essence – like the famous whip being replaced by a gun.
