Siddarth Roy Kapur: Sajid and Ajay make a spectacular combination

By Rachana Sheth, Glamsham Editorial

The prestigious studio of Bollywood, UTV has reached dizzying heights by churning out creme da la creme projects every year. After having a rocking 2012 with back-to-back successes, it looks like the premier production house is set to continue its winning streak in 2013 as well!

Though UTV's kitty is laden with number of biggies, it is ardently looking forward to upcoming film HIMMATWALA. And why not after all it boasts of a heady mix of blockbuster director Sajid Khan, actor Ajay Devgn and southern superstar Tamannaah and a co-producer like Vashu Bhagnani, who are known to be the biggest box-office money-spinners.

"We definitely have great expectations with HIMMATWALA. We couldn't have asked for a better combination. Sajid and Ajay make a spectacular combination. And recreating 80s magic...,I think, we couldn't have asked for more. The whole team of Disney UTV is super excited to be marketing this film. Moreover, it's our first association with Vashuji as well. We had a great time working together. We all are very positive about the film," says an elated Siddarth Roy Kapur, Managing Director, Studios, Disney UTV.

Sajid's new version of HIMMATWALA is set to release on March 29th, 2013! So, ask Siddarth about releasing HIMMATWALA at a time when families are busy with the exams of their kids or students are busy with their exams and he says, "Though it's releasing at the end of the march, HIMMATWALA is for entire family. Lots of films released during that period have done really well. We have RACE as case in point, which released at the same time and did exceptionally well. So I don't think it really matters."

Also starring Paresh Rawal, Mahesh Manjrekar, Zarina Wahab and Sonakshi Sinha featuring in a special disco song, HIMMATWALA is Sajid's fourth film and first venture together with superstar Ajay Devgn.
