Actress Vidya Balan, who will next be seen onscreen in the upcoming film “TE3N” along with Amitabh Bachchan, sat down to watch the megastar’s cult classic “Sholay” again. After watching the film, she says she is unable to decide what caught her attention the most.
Directed by Ramesh Sippy, the film follows two criminals – Veeru (Dharmendra) and Jai (Amitabh) – hired by a retired police officer (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh (Amjad Khan).
“Recouping on a dose of my all time favourite films. Today its ‘Sholay’. Can’t decide who I like best. Jai, Veeru, Thakur, Basanti, Radha, Soorma Bhopali, Jailor, Rahim chacha, Ahmed, Mausi. R.D.Burman’s music, Salim-Javeds’ writing. Actually I think its the sum of all its parts… called Ramesh Sippy,” Vidya shared on Twitter on Wednesday (January 13).
“And I wouldn’t have minded being in Gabbar’s squad,” Vidya added.
