Amitabh and Dharmendra recreate ‘Sholay’ moment as Jai-Veeru


Bollywood veterans Amitabh Bachchan and Dhremendra made a comeback as the inseparable friends Jai and Veeru in the final episode of Big B’s show ‘Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi’.

Amitabh and Dharmendra recreated the magic of their friendship as Jai and Veeru in the iconic film ‘Sholay’ by arriving on the stage in a motorcycle with a sidecar, 40 years later. The memorable song ‘Yeh Dosti Hum Nahi Todenge’ was picturised on both of them riding a bike with a sidecar in the 1975 blockbuster by Ramesh Sippy.

Big B shared a few photos of the show’s final episode on his social network in which Dharmendra is riding the bike while he is standing on the sidecar. Both the actors were as jolly as they had been in the film.

“When Viru and Jai met on 'Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi', then 'Ye dosti hum nahin todenge' happened. The song is so prevailing even after 40 years. Very less we get to see this. Those were the days,” Amitabh wrote along with the photograph.

‘Sholay’ which released on August 15, 1975 also starred Sanjeev Kumar Amjad Khan, Hema Malini and Jaya Bachchan. It is considered one of the biggest classics of Indian cinema.

Besides Dharmendra, the final episode of the show will also feature his son Sunny Deol and actors Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor.

‘Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi’ honours the unsung heroes who have contributed towards the upliftment of society at large.
