Amitabh Bachchan Says Sholay Remake Was A Mistake!

In 2007, controversial filmmaker, Ram Gopal Varma decided to re-create the magic of the 70’s blockbuster movie, Sholay, the remake version was titled, Aag. At the time Big B was more then delighted to be apart of this project, as he always wanted to play the villainous role, Amjad Khan once played in the original, Sholay, a dream of his that was later fulfilled in Aag.

However, whilst on promotions for his latest release, Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap, while interacting with the media, he said, ‘Sholay’s remake was a mistake. I should not have acted in the remake of my own film; a remake will never be the same as an original, an original film will remain an original in my mind.’

Not only was the remake a box office disaster, it was slammed by the film critics and fans.

Better late than never, we’re glad the Big B realized the remake was a bad idea altogether.

Sholay is one of the best movies ever made in the history of Indian cinema, what other Bollywood remake do you think should have stayed an original?
