The actor is all set to bring back the hit song from the Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer

Ajay Devgn is all geared up for his next release ‘Himmatwala’ and has put on his dancing shoes for the popular track ‘Tathaiya Tathaiya’.

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  and 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.”  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 Ajay Devgn and  Tamannaah.  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”
