Himmatwala is no Mughal-e-Azam: Ajay

Actor Ajay Devgn, who plays the male lead in the remake of the 1983 movie Himmatwala, says if the film was a ‘classic’ like Mughal-e-Azam, the new team would have never touched it.

‘We would never try to attempt a Mughal-e-Azam, because we could never try to beat a Mughal-e-Azam. We can only do films which we have got the ingredients for and feel that we can better,’ Ajay told reporters here.

‘Otherwise, what is the point of making a film. So you should never touch classics,’ he added. The comment came as a reaction to Sridevi's past comment that ‘Himmatwala was no Mughal-e-Azam. Sridevi had played the lead heroine in the original, opposite Jeetendra.

The remake, releasing 29 March, is directed by Sajid Khan, and features Tammannah.

Ajay went on to say, ‘That is why we did Himmatwala because it was no Mughal-e-Azam!’ otherwise he would not even have tried.
