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