The new Sholay is different - Mohanlal


Mohanlal, who is presently at Kozhikode, engaged with his onam release Ali Bhai is also keen on the results of his second Hindi outing, the new Sholay by Ram Gopal Varma. The film which was recently renamed as Ram Gopal Verma Ki Aag will also hit the release centres during the Onam season in Kerala.

As every Malayalam moviegoers are very much interested to know, how their hero has performed in the role originally done by Sanjeev Kumar, Lal is trying to keep a low profile of the role.

"As this film has taken only the basic structure from the original, you cannot compare the characters of this film to those of Sholay. Almost all the characters in the new version carry different names and the plot is planted on the underworld. The name of the character I portray is Narasimha, an encounter specialist, who catches Gabbar Singh at a point in the film. I am not doing it the way Sanjeev Kumar did. I have enacted the role of Narasimha the way I can. Like the name suggests, he is a South Indian with a wife and family”.

Mohanlal also find it a god's grace to share onscreen with the legend Amitabh Bachchan. “My first shot was Amitabh Bachchan chopping my fingers off. I had to scream and I lost my voice the next day because of that. This film is more crude and violent”, remarks Lal on the new venture.

Mohanlal debuted into Hindi with Ram Gopal Varma's Company which was a hit in Bollywood. The actor's performance in the film carried rave reviews and he was acknowledged with many awards.

Now that the new film is destined to get released by the last week of August, all eyes are on to see another mesmerizing performance from the extremely talented actor.
