Tamanna, who was expecting a bright career in Bollywood must have been upset with the results of her Hindi movie Himmatwala (a remake of the film of the same title which starred Sridevi in 1983). The movie directed by Sajid Khan had Ajay Devgn as the hero. The film failed to impress any despite a lot of hype.
It is a U turn for Tamanna who has been concentrating mainly in Telugu and Hindi films for the past some time.
It is not that Tamanna’s performance in the move has gone unnoticed. Sajid Khan remarked at the film’s audio launch that Tamanna had all the makings to become the next Sridevi of Bollywood.
Tamanna was modest enough to admit that she was only a beginner in Hindi films and added that she felt honoured to be compared to the legendary Sridevi.
Known as ‘milky beauty’ among her Tamil fans, Tamanna has not appeared in any Tamil film for close to two years now. Finally, she is breaking the spell by expressing her wish to pair up opposite Ajith in his upcoming film directed by Siruthai Siva.
The film has been tentatively titled as Vetrikondan “I want to do many Tamil films…in fact, I want to star opposite top heroes such as Ajith, Vikram and Simbu,” Tamanna has said.
It is but natural to ask this question: Is it a real wish or something which has been forced on her by the debacle of Himmatwala?
