Salman Khan and Abhishek cherish SHOLAY, as the film turns 40 years old
What a milestone in Indian cinema!
Salman Khan and Abhishek cherish SHOLAY, as the film turns 40 years old:
Sholay has probably the most paramount dialogs ever written in a Hindi film be it “kitne aadmi the?” by Gabbar, or “Tumhara naam kya hai Basanti?” by Bachchan and Dharmendra’s “Basanti, in kutton ke saamne mat naachna”.
Salman Khan watched the movie during his schooling days while Junior Bachchan – Abhishek was not even born when the movie was released,and the movie turns 40 this month.
Some Big names involved…
Salman’s dad Salim Khan was the co-writer of the script along side Javed Akhtar, featuring Amitabh Bachchan as Jai, Dharmendra as Veeru, Hema Malini as Basanti, Amjad Khan as the fierce Gabbar and Sanjeev Kumar as Thakur in the Ramesh Sippy directed movie, which was released on August 15, 1975.
“I recollect that we went to see the primer show of Sholay. Arbaaz and I were in Scindia school, so we were wearing our school uniforms when our dad took us there,” Salman said. He later added that “the film shockingly for two weeks was a disaster.”
“Obviously, they did a re-shoot of the climax in which Bachchan saab relive in the film yet,and following two weeks, it just took it to the next level.
The 49 year old bollywood star said this is one film where “informatory lines” got to be hit dialogs. Salman said that he always wanted dialogues like the ones in sholay.
“The thing I adore about “Sholay” is regardless of the possibility that you see it today, it’s extremely contemporary. A considerable measure of movies age, I feel “Sholay” is ever-enduring. It is as near what we can get to an impeccable masala potboiler that we have. Regardless of the fact that you see it today, its extremely acceptable. It’s a great film,” Abhishek Bachchan said.
“My whole childhood has been loaded with listening to stories of Salim-Javed uncle, Ramesh uncle, my parents and those were such grand stories. I trust the film was shot more than three years. There were incredible accounts.”
Sholay is like the Kohinoor of indian cinema. This iconic film was released again in 3D in 2012 recently. In simple lines “ The film speaks for its self.”
