'Himmatwala' is not a copy of 1983 movie

'Himmatwala' actress Tamannaah says that her Bollywood debut movie is not an exact copy of the 1983 'Himmatwala'. Directed by Sajid Khan the 2013 movie script has been completely altered and rewritten by the film-maker.

The actress says, "The film might come with the tag of a remake, but when you see the film, you will notice that Sajid has completely rewritten the script. Except for a few things that have been taken from the original, the way characters are dealt with is completely different."

The 1983 'Himmatwala' was directed by K. Raghavendra, featured Jeetendra and Sridevi in the lead. The 2013 remake features Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah in the leading roles.

 The actress further added, "For instance, Ajay's character in the film is a street fighter but in the original Jeetuji's (Jeetendra) character was an engineer. So, I don't feel the sense of comparison will be as strong once the film comes out."

Meanwhile, Tamannaah believes her southern fans won't be disappointed to see her in the Hindi movie, when it hits theatres on Friday.

"I think this is the best portrayal I have had till date, the way I look. Sajid loves his actors and he loves the characters. So he glorifies them beyond imagination. Be it Ajay's portrayal in the film or my portrayal in the film, it will be larger than life," said the actress, who has worked in about 24 Tamil and Telugu films.

She added, "South Indian films have always been about how to glorify the actors, so I am sure they will enjoy it."
