Tamannaah Bhatia to cast opposite to Ajay Devgan!

All conjectures have come to an end and finally, the well-known South actress Tamannaah Bhatia is decided to fit into the shoes of Sridevi in the remake of the 1983 hit, Himmatwala. Yes, the fact is evident from Kumar Mangat, the business associate of superstar Ajay Devgan.

“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,” said Kumar Mangat. The movie is about to get directed by Sajid Khan and is supposed to be one of the best attempts by the director.

Previously, two other reputed names of the B -Town like Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma were also thought-out for the role, but Tamannaah is the blessed name that got a final nod to star-cast opposite the superstar.

“Katrina and Anushka turned down the role. It was then that Ajay felt a Southern actress would fit the bill. He recalled to his director Sajid Khan and producer Vashu Bhagnani how Sridevi too had emerged from Tamil-Telugu cinema for Himmatwala. Besides, Ajay has lately delivered a big hit with another Tamil-Telugu actress Kajal Aggarwal in Singham,” says a source close to the project.

Though, Himmatwala of the 1980s star casting Sridevi, had become a buzz of the B-town for pretty sometime, but this time bit variations would be witnessed in the character and appearance of Tamannaah. As revealed by a source, “Sridevi in tight-fitting trousers and leather jacket with a whip in hand wouldn’t work now. This firebrand opposite Ajay would a wield a gun. Nainon mein sapna from the original would be there. But it would be shot completely differently on Ajay and Tamannaah.”

Anyways, lots of similarities are found between Sridevi and Tamannaah, rather she is a bit ahead of Sridevi. Being a Sindhi gone South, Tamannaah can speak fluent Hindi, which Sridevi failed to do in the old ‘Himmatwala’. So, this actresses being beautiful and talented is expected to make a good chemistry with Ajay and undoubtedly we look for another Kajal-Ajay chemistry to make a come-back! Let’s hope for the best!
