Tamannaah Bhatia’s first film HIMMATWALA may have been a debacle, but that hasn’t discouraged the actress a bit. In fact, she has taken the failure in her stride and has moved on with a positive attitude. Now she is gearing up for her next Hindi film, HUMSHAKALS.

Ask Tamannaah if there is any pressure, keeping in mind she has worked with the same director and she admits, ”There is no pressure. Once your film is flop, you have already hit rock bottom. Ab tum isse zyada neeche nahi ja sakte. Ab tum sirf upar ja sakte ho. Problem tab hoti hai jab tumhari film successful hoti hai. Because then you have a pressure that your new film has to do better than the old one.”
HUMSHAKALS sees her opposite the nawab of Bollywood Saif Ali Khan. Quiz her on how was it romancing Saif and she gushes, ”It is very easy to romance Saif. He is very adorable and charmer. Even if I wouldn’t have been his co-star, he would have still been as warm as he was when I was his co-star. He is that kind of a person who will acknowledge everyone. He is extremely secure.”
So what was her reaction to Saif’s role reversal? ”Not only Saif, all the guys were looking super-hot. They were way too confident in their outfit. Trust me the guys have enjoyed the gag portion the maximum. Ram was the best. He looked really curvaceous,” laughs Tamannaah.

Tamanaah has been a superstar down South, but she is yet to make her mark in Bollywood. Ask her if she misses having a godfather in Bollywood which could have made her journey easy and she emphasizes, ”I don’t miss having a godfather in Bollywood because that will just get you an opportunity. But yes I do agree a hit film is very necessary.”
Doesn’t she credit Sajid Khan, who gave her first Bollywood break? ”Sajid is my mentor. I have always said that. Even after HIMMATWALA’s debacle he has had faith in me and has cast me in HUMSHAKALS,” says the actress.
Presented by Fox Star Studios and produced by Vashu Bhagnani, HUMSHAKALS is directed by Sajid Khan and also stars Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Esha Gupta, Chunky Pandey. HUMSHAKALS is slated to release on June 20, 2014.
