Sholay or Aag: The name game
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
July 03, 2007
Ram Gopal Varma's penchant for remakes continues. Having tasted success with the remake of The Godfather, released as Sarkar, the ace-director's eyes rested on Sholay. But it's not a cakewalk for Varma as expected. The latest buzz is that there has been a goof-up with the copyrights issue, which resulted in Varma and the Sippys fighting it out in the courts.
Ram Gopal Varma Ke Sholay
With the copyrights issue looming large Varma has now chalked out a plan to divulge himself from all legal tangles. The remake, which was initially titled as Ram Gopal Varma Ke Sholay has now been changed to Ram Gopal Varma Ke Aag. Other notable changes are: Gabbar Singh to Baban singh; Soorma Bhopali to Rambhabhai; and Sambha to Tambhe. Unlike the original version, Ram Gopal Varma Ke Aag's story revolves in the urban setting.

Coming to the star cast, debutant Prashant Raj will play Amitabh's role. Ajay Devgan has been roped-in to play Dharmendra's character, Nisha Kothari will step into Hema Malini's shoes, Sushmita Sen will play Jaya Bachchan's character, the Malayalam superstar Mohanlal is set to play the Sanjeev Kumar's character. And surprise of surprises, the hero of the original - Big B, will play the role of the most dreaded villain Gabbar Singh essayed so excellently by Amjad Khan in the original version.
