‘Sholay’ an all-time greatest movie, says Salman

Mumbai, Jan 5: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is in awe of “Sholay 3D” and the stars associated with it.

The 3D version of the cult movie “Sholay” came out Friday.

Director Ramesh Sippy had pulled a casting coup for “Sholay”, which starred the big names like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Sanjeev Kumar, Amjad Khan, Hema Malini and Jaya Bachchan.

Produced by G.P. Sippy, it became the biggest hit of 1975.

“‘Sholay’ – the dada of all movies. Go and see it, Amitji, Dharamji, Sanjeev Kumar, Hemaji, Amjad Khan, Jayaji, Aasraniji and Jagdeepji are superb,” Salman, whose father Salim Khan co-scripted it with Javed Akhtar, tweeted Friday.

The 48-year-old has called the movie “a journey”, and said that he has never seen such a performance in any movie.

“It’s a cult film, experience it, it’s a journey. The way the film is written, directed and produced 30 plus years ago,” he tweeted.

“Seriously, never seen a better performed, directed, written, photographed, produced, acted, edited, background score, cameo roles are toh standing,” Salman added.

The 3D version is the brain-child of Sacha, grandson of G.P. Sippy.
