Sholay is a movie that is loved by every audience equally. Every single scene of the movie is iconic and is etched in the hearts of people. One such scene was recreated by the movie’s actor Dharmendra but for a change, this time the ‘Basanti’ was not Hema Malini but Kirron Kher.
Dharmendra visited the sets of the reality show India’s Got Talent, which is judged by Kirron Kher along with Shilpa Shetty, Manoj Muntashir and Badshah. Sony TV shared a promo of the reality show on social media which shows Dharmendra dressed in a blue suit and hat and Kirron Kher in a red saree.
Both the actors can be seen recreating the scene from Sholay on the stage. As Dharam ji plays Veeru, Kirron steps in the shoes of Hema Malini to play Basanti. The latter is seen taking an aim with a pistol while Dharmendra guides her by standing behind her. He places his hands on her shoulders and asks her to take aim by closing her eyes. She then asks him, “Yuki dono aankhein band karke nishana kaise lagaungi?” The veteran actor then closes her one eye by placing his hand over it and then asks her to take the aim. This leaves Kirron blushing who eventually fires a shot and Dharmendra lauds her by tapping her cheek.
Shilpa Shetty, who’s also a judge on the show can be seen bursting into laughter and holding a chair to support her. Badshah also cheers for the two and also bows in front of them as a mark of respect.
Sholay is one of the biggest blockbusters of Bollywood. The movie was released in 1975 and stars Hema Malini, Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Amjad Khan, Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bachchan.
