Aamir, Sunny or Hrithik as 'Gabbar'


Ever thought if Sholay was remade, who do you think are the most suited actors to play the legendary characters of 'Sholay', if it were to be remade today? Click on to know more, as we give you some options! Ramesh Sippy's 'Sholay', the most successful cult Bollywood film, turned 35 on the Independence Day. The film, which was released on August 15, 1975, opened to lukewarm response but soon the word of mouth spread and the rest was history. 'Sholay' was Ramesh Sippy's third film and the most ambitious to date as it included a galaxy of stars. Dharmendra and Hema Malini were one of the leading pairs of the 70s, Sanjeev Kumar was a versatile actor, Amitabh Bachchan was a rising star who had proved himself in 'Anand' and 'Zanjeer' and Jaya Bahaduri was an established actress. Also, there was the biggest sensation of all, Amjad Khan as Gabbar Singh, the ferocious dacoit. The audiences lapped up Gabbar, imitating him, loving him and completely ignoring his mean streak once they stepped out of the cinema hall. An entire generation of youth which has grown along with the film cannot help but recall the mesmerizing effect the movie had cast on them during their growing years.
