RAM GOPAL VARMA REMAKING SHOLAY

Ram Gopal Varma will remake SHOLAYBollywood's most versatile director, Ram Gopal Varma, has two dreams: to remake THE GODFATHER (done! See: SARKAR) and to remake SHOLAY. With SARKAR doing big box office biz he's now turned his attention to remaking SHOLAY and, surprisingly, no one has burned him at the stake. Yet.

SHOLAY is the monster classic of Bollywood. Often called a "curry Western" it's a classic that ran for almost five years and most Bollywood fans have seen it a fistful of times (RGV says it's 27 times for him). It tells the story of two thieves who are hired to save a village from a bandit, Gabbar Singh, and stars acting icon Amitabh Bachchan.

RGV has relocated the movie to an urban setting, gotten a blessing from the original director, G.P. Sippy, cast Mohit Ahlawat (a newcomer) in Amitabh Bachchan's original role, cast Amitabh Bachchan himself in the Gabbar Singh role, and may re-title his movie RAMGOPAL VARMA KI SHOLAY if Sippy's kids don't cough up the rights to the original.

(On a related note, Amitabh Bachchan's classic slice of 70's cheese, DON, is also being remade with Shah Rukh Khan in the lead role of the gangster so evil he will kill a man if he doesn't like his shoes.)

All i can say is success has gone to this stupid guy's head. I am a huge fan of RGV. But with that star cast he chose, I think he is taking his fans for granted. I almost watched all the movies from this talented Director, but when I heard of hs cast, first thought that i came to my mind, this guy is out of his mind. I will stay away from this movie and I will stop watching this asshole's movies.

Lets hope the new version of Sholay be a great one. Rgv has already decided the cast and he announced them. Everyone except 'Mohit' are perfect. I think, Akshay Kumar or Abhishek would have been a better choice. Lets wait and see... Big B's Gabbar Vs Mohanlal's Thakkur in RGV film SHOLAY. The biggest Villain ever seen in Indian Cinema is back...............

As the cast is decided, let Ramu do the choosin of the roles.

Only I wanna suggest.

Helen == Yanna Gupta

Song sung by as "she" said Asha ji.

SOME LAST MINUTE CHANGES HEHEHEHEHEHEH

Basanti == Preity Zinta (bubbly)
Radha == Kajol or this may sound weird (Smiti Irani) from saas bhi kabhi bahu thi fame
Jay == hmmm difficult choice but Ajay Devgun
Veeru == I will go for Akshay Kumar (veeru requires to be witty, funny, physically fit, not a tall guy, and at the same time be serious).
Soorma == Javed Jaffery
Gabbar == None other than Big B good choice Ramu ji
Thakur == Rajesh Khanna or Kadar Khan or Sanjay Dutt.
Asrani == Rajpal Yadav
Samba == Shakti Kapoor
Kaliya == Satish Kaushik.
Hangal's role == Nasserudin Shah.
Hangal's sons role == Guy who played Iqbal.
Mausi == In Munna Bhai MBBS the woman who plays Sanjay Dutt's Mother
Music Director == AR Rahman

Please don't change the story Ramu ji let Jay die and Veeru cry plz plz plz.

For Thakur's role Rajesh Khanna is suited then any other actor. He will do justice to his role.

Posted by: Shweta | Nov 19, 2006 10:24:58 PM

Ram Gopal Verms Sholay


Basanthi role : Aswirya Rai
Jey : Akshaya Khanna
Veeru : Ajay Devagan
Thakur : Rajesh Khanna

Posted by: Manohar | Nov 19, 2006 10:29:45 PM

Remake of sholay:


Rajesh Khanna will suit Thakur's
role not any other actor.

Posted by: Geetha | Nov 19, 2006 11:37:59 PM

Basanthi's role - Ashwara Rai
Thakurs role - Rajesh Khanna

Posted by: Raja Ram | Nov 19, 2006 11:40:35 PM

GP Shippy made big a mistake by not including Rajesh Khanna in Sholay.
Atleast now Ram Gopal Verma should include Rajesh Khanna in Thakur's role in his film.

Posted by: Sunitha | Nov 19, 2006 11:44:33 PM

Ram Gopal Verm's Sholay:


Gabbar's acting should be Amitabh
Thakurs acting should be Rajesh Khanna
Basanthis acting should be Kojol.

Posted by: Ramesh Chand Yadav | Nov 19, 2006 11:47:26 PM

Superstar of Indian Film industry Rajesh Khanna is a great actor and acting will be remembered for ever.

Posted by: Mohd Gosh | Nov 20, 2006 12:50:25 AM

Superstar of Indian Film industry Rajesh Khanna is a great actor and acting will be remembered for ever. The remake of sholay by ram gopal verma Rajesh Khanna as Thakur will be good.

Posted by: Mohd Gosh | Nov 20, 2006 12:52:41 AM

Rajesh Khanna's role as Thakur in remake of sholay will be well suitable

Posted by: John | Nov 20, 2006 1:44:40 AM

Ram Gopa Verma's remake of sholay.


Rajesh Khanna as Thakur
Kajol as Basanthi

Posted by: Deekshit | Nov 20, 2006 1:47:08 AM

The present actor for Thakur's role is well matched only by the superstar Rajesh Khanna.

Posted by: Bhagyalakshmi | Nov 20, 2006 1:49:01 AM

Ram Gopal Verm's Sholay:


Jay's acting should be Abhishek Bachan
Veeru acting should be Saif Ali Khan
Gabbar's acting should be Amitabh
Thakurs acting should be Jaki Shrof
Basanthis acting should be Kojol.

Posted by: Surender Dogra | Nov 20, 2006 2:03:03 AM

Jai- Abeshek Bachan

Veeru-Bobby Deol

Gabbur-Nana Patekar

Basanti-Kajol

Radha-Shipa Sheety

Takkur-Amithab Bachan

Jailer-Jonny Lever

Sorma Bhopali- Rajpal Yadav

I think the roles sould have been these for this sholay because these actors suit the roles.I don't agree with Ram Gopal Varma's actors they just dont suit the charactors.


Posted by: jacko | Nov 20, 2006 12:12:12 PM

Gabbar's role nana patakar
basanthi role kajol
thakur's role rajesh khanna the superstar of india

Posted by: Raj Kumar | Nov 20, 2006 8:44:02 PM

Thakur's role in RGV's sholay will suit Rajesh Khanna and Jay's role Ajay Devagan

Posted by: Prakash | Nov 21, 2006 10:01:22 PM

Ram Gopal Verma's sholay:

casting should like this - Thakur - Rajesh Khanna
basanthi - kajol, Jay's role - Ajay Devagan, Gabbar role Nana Patakar

Posted by: raghu | Dec 20, 2006 9:26:54 PM

Rgv has taken the right decision in choosing the actors for his remake of sholay. Mohit is a very good actor though all his movies were a flop. Mohan lal and Big B r the best for the roles of thakur and gabbar. Both r versatile actors who has won a number of national awards and noone can beat them in these roles.

Posted by: Rohit | Dec 21, 2006 2:03:29 AM

Wen the film z out...Just look at Takurs role.....It will B Excellently Played By MOHANLAL...(Much Better Than Rajesh Khanna).....MOHNLAL z The Best Actor IN India...But he z not got a role which z suitable for him to show his excellency.......I M sure he 'll b the best in Sholay2
