Ramesh Sippy Is Writing A Book On Sholay

Sholay director Ramesh Sippy is writing a book on the film remembered as Indian cinema’s quintessential blockbuster. In conversation with filmmaker Farah Khan at the Kala Ghoda festival in Mumbai on Wednesday, Sippy said, as reported by the Hindustan Times,
“It is very difficult to talk about Sholay, especially stuff that hasn’t been said before.  It has been 42 years since the film released, but the brouhaha is yet to die down.”
The 70-year-old filmmaker said the memory of the Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra classic was still fresh in people’s minds. 
“When somebody asks me to talk about Sholay, it is not easy. So much has already been spoken about the film. But, I must also add that nobody tires talking about it, watching it or idolising it. Even after 42 years, the dialogues from the film are still relevant. I am now writing a book on the film. After that, I am hoping that all questions about the film will stop.”
According to Wikipedia, Sholay was rated one of the top 10 best Indian films by a British Film Institute poll in 2002. The film also starred Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Sanjeev Kumar, and (then) Jaya Bhaduri.
