Himmatwala and Zanjeer. Now, all eyes in Tollywood are on these two forthcoming Hindi films. 

What is the connection between these Hindi movies and Telugu Cinema? Well, Himmatawala is a remake of 80`s super hit movie called Ooriki Monagadu starring Krishna and Jayaprada. 

Director K Raghavendra Rao remade the film in Hindi with Sridevi and Jitendra as lead pair. Now, as the movie`s remake with Ajay Devgan and Tamannah is set for release, everyone is eager to see whether Tamannah has recreated the same magic that Sridevi wove years ago with her sizzling skin show.

Tamannah got the chance to act in this film because of her sensuous dance numbers in Telugu films like Rachcha. In the case of Zanjeer, the movie is a launch pad for one of Tollywood`s top star Ram Charan in Bollywood. His fans and detractors are eager to see how Ram Charan would fare in Bollywood. 

Zanjeer is in the last leg of shooting. Though both these movies - Himmatwala and Zanjeer - are Hindi films, these are raising curiosity in Telugu audiences for reasons explained above.
