Ajay Devgn who is all geared up for his next release ‘Himmatwala’ has put on his dancing shoes and this time it is to bring the most popular number ‘Tathaiya Tathaiya’ from the 80’s back !!
Directed by Sajid Khan the duo has 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 80’s.
Devgn who is now quite comfortable with dancing was seen enjoying the shooting and said ‘It is one of the most popular numbers from the 80’s. Right from the sets to the costumes and the choreography, everything has been perfectly recreated.”
When quizzed Sajid Khan about the comparison which people would make between the original & 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 Jeetendra’s image as a dancer was strong at that time.”
B-Towns most 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 Jeetendra’s steps, but the entire unit broke into applause after he gave his first take”
The song which is so picturesque was recently shot in Mumbai with Superstar Ajay Devgn and goregeous Tamannaah who looked every inch of a diva in the song!!
UTV Motion pictures have acquired the rights of the original song from Saregama and they are quite happy with the association. In fact Head of Music at Saregama India Ltd Adarsh Gupta said that “Saregama is looking forward to the association with versatile Director Sajid Khan and Disney UTV for their upcoming block-busters. Together we will revive the very happening era of music from the 80s”
‘Himmatwala’ is directed by Sajid Khan,starring Superstar Ajay Devgn & Tammanah. The film is produced by UTV Motion Pictures & Vashu Bhagnani and is all set to hit the theatres on March 29th, 2013!!
