Amitabh Bachchan took a trip down memory lane when he shared a group photo of the Sholay cast and crew on micro-blogging site Twitter.
Reminiscing the days when he was shooting for the all-time blockbuster, Big B wrote: "Wonderful days of 'SHOLAY' .. vintage photo .. Amjad, Dharam ji, AKHangal, Sachin, Ramesh Sippy and ..moi."
The megastar who played the role of Jai in the original film also played the part of Gabbar (Babban) in the remake of the film Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag.
Interestingly the 3D version of the 1975 Bollywood classic, Sholay, will release on megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 71st birthday Oct 11, according to a source.
"The date was specifically chosen as it coincides with Bachchan's big day. He is the biggest star we have today and what better day to release the film," said a source in a statement.
Sholay, directed by Ramesh Sippy, also featured Hema Malini, who played Basanti and Amjad Khan, who essayed villain Gabbar Singh.
