Mumbai, June 28 Actor Tusshar Kapoor feels Ajay Devgn is the right choice for the remake of the 1983 hit “Himmatwala” starring his dad Jeetendra, adding that given a choice, he would like to work on the remakes of his father’s “Caravan” or “Farz”.
“I would want to do ‘Caravan’ or ‘Farz’. ‘Caravan’ is more my age, it was a comedy as well,” said Tusshar when quizzed, which of his father’s film would he like to star in?
Sajid Khan will wield the megaphone for the “Himmatwala” remake.
Tusshar, who worked with Ajay in “Golmaal” series, says he is happy that Ajay is doing it and added: “I have worked with him, I think he is the most appropriate choice for that film. I am happy that a great team like Sajid Khan and Ajay Devgn are bringing back such a big film.”
“I am dying to see it and I am sure Ajay will give it his own spin and he’ll make it as good as the first, I am sure,” said the 35-year-old in an interview.
Tusshar describes “Himmatwala”, which also starred Sridevi, as a “trendsetting film”.
” ‘Himmatwala’ is a huge brand, it was a trendsetting film. That film started the trend of heroes and heroines dancing together, people called it P.T. exercise at that time but that trend has been going on for 30 years now. I think ‘Himmatwala’ is the film where that started,” said Tusshar.
One the most famous song from the film is “Nainon mein sapna”, which was picturised on Jeetendra and Sridevi.
