Sholay featured Dharmendra as Veeru, Amitabh as his friend Jai and their awesome friendship. Hema Malini played the effervescent Basanti and the late Amjad Khan played iconic villain Gabbar Singh. The role of Gabbar Singh in Sholay is the most popular and so are his dialogues. Although, the movie boasted cast of superstars Amitabh and Dharmendra, Gabbar stole the limelight with his eerie dialogue delivery.

Reportedly, the makers of Sholay 3D had earlier decided to remix the classic dance number Mehbbooba but later dropped the idea.

Film: Sholay 3D

Cast: Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Sanjeev Kumar and Amjad Khan

Director: Ramesh Sippy

Story line: The 3D version of the iconic movie, Sholay revolves around Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jai (Amitabh Bachchan), hired by a retired police officer Thakur Baldev Singh (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan).

In the Thakur's rural village, the duo finds romance and seeks to free the village from Gabbar and his followers. Veeru is attracted to Basanti (Hema Malini), a feisty, talkative young woman and Jai is drawn to Radha (Jaya Bhaduri), Thakur's reclusive, widowed daughter-in-law.

Skirmishes between Gabbar's gang and Jai-Veeru finally result in the capture of Veeru and Basanti by the dacoits. In the fight, Jai dies. Enraged, Veeru nearly beats Gabbar to death when Thakur reminds Veeru to handover Gabbar alive. Thakur then severely injure Gabbar and destroy his hands.

The 3D version of the 1975 classic, Sholay, has been a much awaited film as the original movie is still watched and loved. Produced by Sascha Sippy, grandson of GP Sippy who had financed the original, the new avatar promises to provide an entirely new viewing experience to the audience when it hits 1,000 screens.

Reportedly, Sholay might just get a sequel soon. The makers of Sholay 3D, Shehzad Sippy and Sasha Sippy, have already started working on the script.
