Filmmaker Sajid Khan, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Himmatwala, recently declared that he had wanted this film to be his first film as a director.
At the music launch event of the film, Khan said, “I had made Heyy Baby in 2007, but I had been working on a draft of Himmatwala since then. I had wanted it to be my first film and had always imagined Ajay Devgn in the lead role. Whenever I would close my eyes and try to visualize the film poster, Devgn would come to mind as I cannot see any other actor in that role.”
Himmatwala remake stars Ajay Devgn, Tamannaah Bhatia, Paresh Rawal and Mahesh Manjrekar in lead roles.
