Sholay to hit Pakistani theatres after 40 years!


The Indian classic ‘Sholay’ is ready to make a debut in Pakistani cinemas after 40 years of its release.

Directed by Ramesh Sippy and produced by his father G P Sippy, the 1975 film starred Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachan, Hema Malini and Dharmendra in lead roles.

Nadeem Mandviwalla, who is the owner of Mandviwalla Entertainment, said film has never been screened in Pakistani cinemas and people here watched only the pirated version of it.

“Many people have been deprived of the experience of watching it in a cinema so we feel the audience will want to come watch it, given the opportunity,” Dawn quoted Mandviwalla as saying.

The movie was remastered last year in 2014 and released in 3D for the new generation of movie buffs. It will be releasing in 2D and 3D in Pakistan!

According to Mandviwala, Sholay will have fewer shows but should have a long run in Pakistani cinemas.
The release date has been finalized and its expected to hit cinemas on March 20.
