“I was offered Ramesh Sippy’s iconic film Sholay” reveals Shatrughan Sinha


Bollywood Actor Shatrughan Sinha recently made an appearance on Indian singing reality show, Indian Idol 12 with his wife, Poonam Sinha. He revealed on the show that he was offered Ramesh Sippy’s iconic film Sholay.

Reportedly Indian Idol 12 judge Himesh Reshammiya asked Shatrughan Sinha why he turned down Sholay. “During those times, I was continuously shooting for films which had two heroes and, somehow, we can call it a human error or my dates were an issue due to which I couldn’t sign the film Sholay. I’m sad but happy at the same time as due to Sholay, national icon Amitabh Bachchan, who is my dear friend, got such a big break,” the actor said.

“Certain rejections of films occur due to date issues. Even Amitabh Bachchan wanted to do Kalicharan but he couldn’t do it for a reason. It’s generic in nature, even Rajesh Khanna, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Sunny Deol must have rejected films for several reasons,” he added.

Sholay was the highest-grossing Indian film ever at the time of its release and is considered to be among the best Indian films of all time.
