Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma….who can slip into the shoes of Sridevi?

The three hotties are in the running to play the leading lady opposite Ajay Devgn in Sajid Khan’s remake of Himmatwala

Remember yesteryear dancing queen Sridivi and B-town’s ultimate jumping Jack Jeetendra shaking their well choreographed booty on Naino Main Sapna against the backdrop of colourful matkas and outrageously garish sets in 1983 film Himmatwala? Now imagine Katrina Kaif or Deepika Padukone or Anushka Sharma matching their footsteps with the hapless Ajay Devgn, who is struggling to get his moves right. Now you don’t have to wait longer for your grubby imagination will soon be converted into reality.

Sajid Khan, who is currently riding high after the success of Housefull 2, is gearing up to remake Sridevi-Jeetendra starrer Himmatawala. We hear that the funnyman has signed Ajay Devgn as the male lead but he’s not zeroed in on the female lead for the film yet. Though Katrina and Anushka have expressed their wish to work in this film we hear that Deepika may have an edge as she has earlier worked with Sajid in Housefull 2 and she also shares a great rapport with him.

A little birdie has informed us that Sajid wants to retain the famous Naino Main Sapna song which had become a chart-buster when the film was released. Sajid has bought the song’s rights and his sister Farah Khan will choreograph this song for the remake. The new number will have the charm of 80’s and will be shot with the same lavishness. The original song boasts of having the maximum number of background dancers used in any film made in 80’s. But the question is: will the new song re-create the same magic? We know for sure, that Ajay devgn with his stiff dancing moves will have to work hard to get this one right but who amongst the Deepika, Kat and Anushka can match the legendary Sridevi’s fine dancing moves? It’s tough to say because the competition is fierce between the three babes. While Deepika has shown off her old world moves in Om Shanti Om and Anushka shows loads of technique in Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Katrina Kaif has recently proved that she’s got the groove with Chikni Chameli. Who’s your pick?
