Ajay Devgn ready for ‘Jumping Jack’ makeoverJune 20th, 2012 - 8:00 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) He is known for playing intense roles, but now Ajay Devgn is ready to imitate Bollywood’s “Jumping Jack” Jitendra’s dance moves in his new film “Himmatwala”, which is based on the 1983 film of the same name.
“I am ready to do anything, be it action or dance… You can’t look at one department, it is a film in totality… I am looking at the whole film right now,” Ajay told reporters Wednesday.
Said Sajid Khan, director of the new version of “Himmatwala”: “Ajay’s image is action and intense oriented, but for me, he is a complete hero. He can do anything. Our film is not a take off on ‘Himmatwala’. It’s not a spoofy film.
“It is based on 1983 film ‘Himmatwala’ and it is my version of ‘Himmatwala’. You will get to see many things which were not there in ‘Himmatwala’. Actually, they are two different stories. We have taken rights officially for the film and for the two songs.”
Directed by Telugu filmmaker K. Raghvedra, Jeetendra and Sridevi-starrer “Himmatwala” was a super hit film of 1983.
Sajid says Jeetendra may do a guest appearance in his film.
“I will ask Jeetu-ji to do a cameo in the film. For Ajay, it is like homecoming because his dad did action for ‘Himmatwala’. This time around the action will be completely new and different.”
Ajay said: “I am asking him (Jeetendra) to do that cameo. I don’t know if he would do that or not.”
To be co-produced by Vashu Baghnani and UTV Motion Pictures, the film’s leading lady is not yet finalised.
