By
Ajay Devgn has said that dancing was harder than fighting a tiger in Himmatwala.

The actor shot sequences of the film with a real tiger in the remake of the 1983 hit film.

Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Devgn said: "Dancing was the biggest 'Himmatwala' moment for me in the film; fighting with a tiger was easier. But Farah Khan (choreographer) and Sajid Khan were sensible. They gave me movements which suited me."

The 43-year-old explained that he has shot with a tiger in an earlier film, sying: "I have done it once earlier in Vijaypath. That time, it was different, as we used to stitch the tiger's mouth. But now, that's not allowed.

"So, we shot in Mauritius because we couldn't shoot in India. It was a trained tiger, but the problem is that it can attack you anytime. I got little bruises here and there, but it was fine," he recalls.

Devgn, who has scored box office hits with Son of Sardar and Bol Bachchan, said he is not concerned about whether Himmatwala enters the so-called '100 crores club'.

"I don't want to get into that zone. We make a film for the audiences. The more the people watch and like it, the [higher] the collections," he said.

"I hope it does make it there, if that is the barometer. But that doesn't mean Rs. 100 crore is coming in our pockets. It's just a term which shows that [the] maximum people have seen it."

Devgn also said he enjoyed working with South Indian star Tamannaah.

"She is a pretty girl and she's very professional," he said. "She's a big star in the South. It's easier to work with people who have done so many films and have that kind of confidence. So, it was nice working with her."

Sajid Khan's Himmatwala is released today (Friday, March 29). Watch the trailer below:
