Bollywood is full of news that director/producer Ramgipal
Varma's new film Sholay is almost ready to be released.
But it turns out that the film's shooting is still not complete.
Mohanlal is playing the role that Sanjeev Kumar had starred in, in
the original Sholay. He had given plenty of callsheets
last year for the film but due to various circumstances, the unit
wasn't able to complete his portions. When his callsheets ended, he
had to return to Kerala for his Malayalam films.
He'll soon join the Sholay unit for the next schedule.
That will run till the 11th of March. The film is expected to get
released sometime this summer, if everything goes right. As soon as
he completes his Sholay shoot, Mohanlal will join the crew
of Kunhu Mohammed's Paradesi. Some portions of the film
still aren't complete.
