Sunny Deol speaks on 'Sholay 3D'

By Sanskriti Media and Entertainment

Proud of his father's success, the actor is all excited for the film

The New Year kicks in with the epic 1975 hit 'Sholay' re-releasing in a 3D format. Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra are two names that are associated with this film and excited about his dad's re-release, Sunny Deol shares his happiness.

"The whole country is attached to this movie and with the 3D effect added to it, its sounds and looks even better. The ones who have seen it are going to love it and the ones who haven't are in for a new experience all together," he shares.

Proud about his father, he adds, "I will go home and give him a tight hug. There is no comparison with Papa and Amitji and our generation today. There is no point even comparing and we cannot do anything to compare ourselves with them." And added,

"It’s a good film, an iconic film. Its not buy fluke or by chance, that after 38 years we can still relate to it, that means how good the film is. I cannot say the same with the films of today."

"I was emotional throughout the film, you can see it in my eyes. The first time I saw this film was at Rajkamal. I was flying off to England that time before going I had to see the film. I loved it then also. As a matter of fact, I am seeing this film after 38 years," he shares about its timeless appeal.

About his favourite character he says, "My favourite character in this film is obviously my dad.” On promotions, he added, "Its not that you don’t need promotions but until you don't do an event, people won't come to see your film as they wouldn't know about it."

'Sholay 3D' releases on January 3, 2014.
