After 37 years of its release, Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay will hit the screens on January 3rd in 3D format. Analysts feel that Sholay 3D will see a larger success than Sholay. Since 1995, the movie has received 67 TRPs. Even 3 Idiots (2009) got only 11 TRPs. The new version is expected to make least double the money the makers spent on its revival. Sholay is 198 minutes long. 100s of Technicians had worked on 2,85,120 frames individually to make this 3D version happen.
Sholay starring Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri and Amjad Khan is a 1975 Indian action-adventure film produced by G.P. Sippy and directed by his son Ramesh Sippy. It is deemed to be among the greatest films in Indian cinema.
