Sajid Khan describes awards as TV shows

Jan 24 2013, 9:04am CST | by

Mumbai, Jan 24 (IANS) Director Sajid Khan seems to be sceptical about the credibility of film awards and compares them with television shows.

Mumbai, Jan 24 — Director Sajid Khan seems to be sceptical about the credibility of film awards and compares them with television shows.

"Awards are just TV shows, it's only a TV show. Even we (Sajid and Ajay Devgn) will start one soon. We will soon have an Ajay Devgn and Sajid Khan Foundation Awards (Laughs)," Sajid Khan told reporters when he was asked about the credibility of the award functions.

He was speaking at the theatrical promo launch of the film at the single screen theatre Gaiety Galaxy Thursday.

While talking about the film, inspired by Jeetendra-starrer 1983 hit "Himmatwala", he said the film will see Ajay in a never-seen-before avatar.

"'Himmatwala' is not a remake. The film is set in 1983 and based in that era. I can say Ajay will be presented like never before in this film. It's a complete family entertainer," said Sajid.

Known for making comic capers like "Housefull", this will be his first action drama.

"My first film 'Heyy Babyy' was a drama and then 'Housefull' and 'Housefull 2' was a comedy film. But this film will be my first action drama," he said.

Ajay, who was also present, said the film is not a spoof of the original "Himmatwala".

"We have stayed true to the 1980s style. I would say it's not a spoof, we have just copied the 1980s style," said the actor.

"Himmatwala" also features Tammanah and is slated for a March 29 release. The film is being co-produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Vashu Bhagnani.

The Legend of Korra: Book Three Review

Aug 29 2014 1:56pm CDT | Source: ign

Warning: Full spoilers from The Legend of Korra: Book Three to follow. With The Legend of Korra capping off its latest season last week, I think it's safe to say that Book Three was, in my opinion, the show's best season yet, delivering consistently great stories and developing its characters over the course of an expansive adventure. Book Three was also the best season for Korra, and featured some of her most Avatar-like moments: counseling others, making group dec ...

The Legend of Korra: "The Terror Within" Review

Jul 25 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: ign

Warning: Full spoilers from the episode to follow. Circling back once more to Zaofu, "The Terror Within" brought the Metal City arc to an exciting close, as Zaheer's crew -- now called the "Red Lotus" -- launched a covert mission to capture the Avatar. But first, we said goodbye to Opal, who was promptly shipped off to the Northern Air Temple -- a shame, considering Team Avatar probably could have used another airbe ...
