The writer-duo Salim and Javed; who penned the scripts for cult classics like Sholay, Zanjeer, Deewar, etc parted ways over three decades ago. The two are now re-uniting for the launch of the trailer of the 3D format of the 1975 cult classic Sholay.
A source says, “Sholay is their masterpiece and they have decided to come together to launch the trailer of Sholay 3D. The film will be released Jan 3. It will be a moment of nostalgia to see them together on the same platform.”
Directed by Ramesh Sippy and starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Amjad Khan and Hema Malini, the movie released on 15th August 1975 and initially was not received well by the audiences and the critics but later, it became a major box-office success because of word-of-mouth publicity and broke many records. The movie also redefined careers of Amjad Khan, Hema Malini and Amitabh Bachchan.
