After paying tribute to the 70s, in Golmaal 3, Rohit Shetty takes a step further, in his upcoming, Singham.
Singhim’s will see the entire fight sequences from the 70’s blockbusters Amar Akbar Anthony and Zanjeer.
In the film which is set to release this Friday, Ajay Devgn plays the role of an angry young cop named Bajirao Singham.
A source revealed, “The famous scene from Amar Akbar Anthony between Vinod Khanna a cop and Amitabh Bachchan the goon has been re-enacted in Singham.
The scene has Vinod Khanna unbuttoning his police uniform to beat up Amitabh. In Singham, Ajay Devgn who plays a cop, does the same to Ravi Beasant. In fact, the dialogue between Ajay and Ravi are similar to the ones between Vinod and Amitabh.”
The source further adds, “There is a scene similar to a scene from the 1973 hit Zanjeer as well. The scene where Pran walks into a police station and tries to sit on a chair, which Amitabh Bachchan kicks away and says, ‘Jab tak baithne ko kahaa na jaaye, tab tak chup chaap khade raho,’ has been re-created in Singham. In this film, the scene has been picturised on Ajay Devgn and Marathi actor Ashok Samarth.”
“Rohit wanted to pay a tribute to the 70’s and also to the original angry young man of Indian cinema, Mr Amitabh Bachchan,” said the source.
The official spokesperson from the film confirmed, “They are used as a tribute to the films of 70’s.
Rohit and Ajay have grown up watching these films. These are iconic scenes and we have tried to pay them a tribute through our film.”
