Amitabh Bachchan says Dharmendra will beat him for revealing this Sholay story on KBC 13, agrees Hema Malini
Actors Hema Malini, Amitabh Bachchan and filmmaker Ramesh Sippy are all set to celebrate classic hindi cinema movie Sholay on Kaun Banega Crorepati’s upcoming episode 13. The film was released 46 years ago on August 15, 1975. It also starred Dharmendra, Amjad Khan. Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bachchan, among others.
In a final KBC 13 promo, Big B asks director Ramesh Sippy why he considered him for the role of Jai in Sholay. The filmmaker replies: “Anand mein aapne bohot badhiya kaam kiya. Bombay To Goa mein aapne light role kiya (You did an amazing job in Anand. In Bombay to Goa, you played a lighter role). So this seems like an actor who could do it all. An elated Bachchan asks Sippy with a dazzling smile: “Mere baare mein aapko aisa laga (Did you feel this for me)?” to which the filmmaker replied in the affirmative.

During the episode, Bachchan senior will also share some interesting anecdotes from the shooting of Sholay. In the promo, he shares: “The scene where I play the mouth organ and Jaya (Bachchan) lights the lamp, it took three years to take this picture.”
Dharmendra, who tried out the role of Veeru in the movie, will also join the team via a video call. He will tell how he traveled 28 miles to the location. Big B will also relate an incident which could embarrass Dharmendra by saying: “Bohot maarenge jo hum bataane vaale hain…”.
Sholay’s reunion will air on Sony Entertainment Television on Friday, October 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
