I would not think of remaking Sholay: Farah Khan


Bollywood filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan, who has worked with the who's who of Bollywood for over two-and-a-half decades now, feels some classics like Sholay shouldn't be touched upon for remakes. The director, during an interview with media, said that even though she plans to reprise old films, she would never remake a Sholay.

"My children haven't seen old films. I feel classics need not be touched like I would not think of remaking a 'Sholay' because I know 'meri bajne hi waali hai usme'! Such films stand the test of time," she said. She added, "You have to be careful of what film to remake. You have to take a loved movie but not something that you know you would be compared and (then) torn to shreds. Remakes are now done all over the world. At one time I used to wonder why (remake a movie)? Now I think it would be fun modernising movies I love."
