Akshay Kumar's upcoming movie Gabbar Is Back will present the actor in yet again action avatar. Trailer of the film was released recently and since then the film is being linked with the iconic movie Sholay.
While, the title Gabbar Is Back is derived from Sholay's antagonist, there are a couple of dialogues in Akshay Kumar's next film which are very much copied and modified from Sholay.
While, the movie Gabbar Is Back is being assumed to be a remake of Sholay, Akshay Kumar denies that and in the process, supposedly took a dig at Ram Gopal Varma.
It is to be recalled, Ram Gopal Varma also made a remake of Sholay titled as Aag which ended up being a super flop and several jokes were also made on the film and the director.
Now, when Akshay Kumar was asked whether Gabbar Is Back is a remake of Sholay, the actor replied in a very sarcastic manner and mentioned Ram Gopal Varma's Aag.
"Not at all. Gabbar Is Back is not a remake of Sholay. Ram Gopal Verma has already done that once," said Akki. Well, it seems to be Akshay's way of taking a dig at someone or may be it's just a casual mention of the super flop remake.
