‘Himmatwala’ set for Good Friday 2013 release

The Ajay Devgn-Tamannaah-starrer is aiming for the Holi-Good Friday festival audience

Filmmaker Sajid Khan’s Himmatwala, featuring Ajay Devgn and Southern actor Tamannaah, will hit the silver screens March 29, 2013 , on the occasion of Good Friday. It falls two days after the festival of Holi. Produced by UTV Motion Pictures and Vashu Bhagnani, Himmatwala is the official remake of 1983 blockbuster of the same name, which had Jeetendra and Sridevi in lead roles. That itself was a remake of 1981 Telugu film Ooriki Monagadu.

The first look of the new Himmatwala is already out, which revives the retro feel of the 1980s. The caption of the poster also reads ’29th March 2013…..The 80s Will Be Back’.

Sajid Khan recently recorded the popular song Taaki o taki in the voices of Mika and Shreya Ghoshal. The music has been composed by Sajid-Wajid with a live 100-musician orchestra.
