This is how the water tank scene of ‘Sholay’ was written, Javed told this interesting story after years

Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra’s leading man ‘Sholay’ is included in the list of iconic Hindi films. This is such a movie, which was liked by people of all ages. From the film’s story to the dialogues, it is still in people’s minds. This movie was co-written by the duo of Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan and directed by Ramesh Sippy. Now a funny anecdote related to this movie has been released, knowing which you will be surprised.

There is a scene in the movie Sholay, where Dharmendra drinks alcohol, climbs on the water tank and creates a lot of ruckus. In the scene, in the role of Veeru, Dharmendra says that if he does not marry Basanti (Hema Malini), she will give her life. He’d be surprised to know that Javed Akhtar had scribbled this scene in a hurry on the hood of his car. This story was shared by Javed himself during an interview.

A few years ago, during an interview with Entertainment Pakistan, Javed Akhtar had said, ‘I take a pen and paper in the morning, go to the airport in the car and write on it.’ Even after arriving at the airport, the scene was not completed and I got out of the car and left the paper on the hood and while I was writing, the sound was coming from there. There they are saying that you are going, you show the boarding pass. Otherwise you will miss your flight. So after writing that, I gave it to my assistant. I didn’t even read again, that scene was completed on the hood of the car.
