Sajid Khan shoots for Himmatwala in Jaipur
The sizzling chemistry of Ajay Devgn and his co-actor Tamanna set the temperature soaring in the Pink City over the weekend. In Jaipur for Sajid Khan's film Himmatwala, Ajay and Tamanna shot for the famous song Taki O Taki Re in a five star hotel, situated on the Delhi highway on Saturday.
The film, which is a remake of the 80s superhit Himmatwala starring Jitendra and Sridevi, is being shot at different locations in the city these days. The team has already shot Tathaiya, Tathaiya in Mumbai.
Speaking to TOI, Sajid said that the Pink City fits in perfectly with the screenplay of the film, and he has shortlisted five haveli, for a week-long shoot. "I personally love this city and its ambience. Not just me, the entire cast and crew of the film was excited to shoot in Jaipur," Sajid said.
To bring in the look and feel of the 80s, Sajid also zeroed in on some villages near Jaipur. "Himmatwala is one of my favourites and I grew up watching such films," said the director. So, is this film an official remake of the 80s hit? "No. It's not a remake. I would say, it retains the essence of the old one. It has been re-written with more action, drama and humour. The film has already grabbed eyeballs for its first look. My sister Farah has really worked very hard on this song Taki O Taki with Ajay and Tamanna and we all are very satisfied with the results," shared Sajid.
