On Friday, for a special episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 13 hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, audiences will witness a Sholay reunion. Hema Malini and Ramesh Sippy will be taking the hot seat and the trio will be seen revisiting their film Sholay and sharing memories from the sets.
In a recent promo shared by Sony TV, Amitabh Bachchan asked Ramesh Sippy, “Jai Veeru ka aapne kaise socha?” The filmmaker replied, “Anand mein aapne bohot badhiya kaam kiya. Bombay To Goa mein aapne light role kiya. So,I thought this seems to be an actor who could do anything. An elated Bachchan asked. “Mere baare mein aapko aisa laga”. To which the filmmaker responded in affirmative.
Amitabh also revealed that the scene where he is seen playing a mouth organ and watching Jaya Bachchan light a lamp took three years to shoot.
Dharmendra who played the role of Veeru in the film joined the trio through video call. He shared that he once walked 28 miles to the shoot location. In the video, Amitabh Bachchan can be later heard telling Dharmendra, “Bohot maarenge jo hum bataane vaale hain”.
