Sholay 3D releasing on 15th of August

After the 37 years of original release, on 15th of August 2012 Superhit “Sholay” will be released once again but this time in 3D!!!

Sholay, which was first released on August 15 1975, ran for 286 weeks straight and was ranked by India Times as one of the ‘Top 25 must see Bollywood films’ as well as being awarded ‘The Best Film of 50 Years’ in 2005 by Filmfare.

Pen India Private Ltd has taken the job in hand and says,

“We are planning to release the movie on Aug 15 because it was released on the same day in 1975. The idea of the 3D version came from copyright owners of the movie. I believe, it is the best movie to augment with special effects. After 20 years of its release when the movie was first screened on DD national, it registered a TRP of 65. That is the highest TRP of any movie showcased on Indian television. We hope people will like its 3D form as well.”
