Shooting of HIMMATWALA is currently on and producers Vashu Bhagnani and UTV have already set March 2013 target for its release. Meanwhile director Sajid Khan is confident about the commercial response to the film and expectedly dismisses the critical response it may get.
”HIMMATWALA would be Ajay’s biggest grosser till date. Period,” declares Sajid, ”As for the reviews, I know they won’t be favourable. That’s not because the film won’t be liked, it is because we are talking about a Sajid Khan film here. There is a reason behind that as well. See, critics don’t like me because they fear me. Why they fear me? Because I have proved them wrong again and again. They have dismissed my films while audiences have made each one of these bigger than the last one. That should say it all.”
No wonder, Sajid reiterates the stance he has maintained when it comes to critics reviewing his films.

”To all you critics, I am saying this with folded hands that please don’t review my film. Reason being that regardless of whether you give HIMMATWALA five stars or a zero star, I would still not care. I don’t need a certificate from people who know nothing about films, be it Bollywood or international,” says Sajid while being composed all throughout.
He goes on to add, ”It isn’t as if I am seething in anger; no, I am not. My only thing is that ultimately one should work for people than trying to tell world how a film is made. I am happy doing the former.”
