If all goes well, the 1975 classic, 'Sholay', might just get a sequel soon. As we have heard, the makers of 'Sholay 3D' —Shehzad Sippy, Sasha Sippy and Shaan Uttam Singh — and distributor Jayantilal Gada, have been receiving scripts and are seriously considering making Sholay Part 2.
A source close to the production house revealed - “The recall value of the film is so strong that it can easily convert into a franchise where Jai and Veeru can explore new issues and solve problems.”
Apparently, once the makers give a thumbs up, the next step would be the casting process for the film.
Asked about it, Gada confirmed the news - “We have received the scripts and we believe there is a lot of equity in Sholay. We will consider converting it into a franchise soon.”
