The fact that Ajay Devgn will be next seen playing the male lead in Sajid Khan directed Himmatwala remake is known to everyone by now. However, what most probably don't know that it was Devgn's father, Veeru Devgn, who worked as an action director on the original Himmatwala starring Jeetendra and Sridevi.
In a recent interview, while Ajay revealed this factoid, he also added that as a teenager, he had accompanied his father to Chennai where the famous taaki o taaki song was being recorded and that it was then that Jumpin' Jack Jeetendra, as he was fondly called because of his dance steps, predicted that Ajay would be an actor.
Devgn will be paired opposite South actress Tamannaah Bhatia in the film, which will be releasing in March 2013.
