Confirming the news of the film's re-release in 3D, Shaan Uttam Singh, the grandson of GP Sippy and one of the copyright owners of the film, told The Times of India: "We are coming up with the 3D version of Sholay. The project is almost complete and will release on August 15.

"The movie is a classic and people will love to watch it with the technological augmentation."

Jayanti Lal Gada, CMD at Pen India Private Ltd, the production house behind the making of the 3D version of the film, said: "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 (target rating point) of 65.

"That is the highest TRP of any movie showcased on Indian television. We hope people will like its 3D form as well."

The original production starred Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Hema Malini.

Malini, who played the role of Basanti in the film, has said that Sholay should not be remade.
