The new Sholay is a whole new film. The main story is the same, but the treatment will be very modern and urban. I am removing the 'merge with old Sholay' notice. The old Sholay talk page clearly states there are no intentions of merging. Anagha 22:27, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
"Perhaps the strongest amongst all his critics was one man who sent a SMS containing highly derogatory remarks about the movie which RGV himself admitted and is alleged to have repented his decision in making this flop remake of the epic film [Sholay]. The contents of the SMS which shook RGV were: -
"Hi Sir. To call Aag a piece of junk would be demeaning junk. What happened to the colours of Rangeela and the grit of Satya? No clear story, meaningless script, obsession with dark lighting, weak screenplay, and songs that are too high-pitched and outdated. You were in a hurry while shooting. Fast editing, nonsensical expressions, no romance, horrifying background music and choreography, cinematography is horrid, bad clothes, bad hoardings, bad amateurish dialogues, bad characterizations with no emotional graph for the characters,leaving the actors free to ham,outdated action, emotionless scenes, no comedy, no colour. You should sit and watch your film alone. No freshness, carelessness in creativity.You've become over-confident and you are losing touch with reality. You're handing over creative work to the wrong people. You're impulsively doing ten films at a time and not focusing on one project. You've enjoyed the shooting without caring about what the outcome would be. You're busy giving stupid interviews. What have you done in the past seven years except a couple of notable films?"
Says Ramu(RGV), "The above message shook me completely. It made me realize it's time for me to do some serious re-thinking about my career"
Isnt this rather irrelevant to the article? I think it doesnt confirm to wiki standards.
Proposed cast of new Sholay
Is the proposed cast of the new Sholay good enough? Can it be better! Like:
- Gabbar - Saif Ali Khan (Langda Tyagi)
- Veeru - Akshay Kumar or Aamir Khan
- Jai - Salmaan Khan or Ajay Devgan
- Basanti - Rani Mukherjee or Preeti Zinta
- Radha - Vidya Balan or Aishwarya Rai
- and some more suggestions....
or how about
- Veeru- Bobby deol
- Jai- Abhishek Bachen
- Basanti- Rani Mukherjee or Amish Patel
- Rahda- Ashwary Rai
- Gabbar- Sanjay Dutt or Saif Ali Khan
- Gypsy Danser- Helen's daghter in law- Malika Arora-whoever is Arbaz khans wife
- Gypsy Singer- Arbaz Kan
The infobox credits Ram Gopal Verma as the writer. Is that fair to the original writers? It is afterall a remake. Anagha 08:31, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
I DONT THINK SO= THE ORIGINAL STORY WAS WRITTEN BY SIPPY SO HE SHOULD GET THE CREDITED- EVEN IF HE ID DEAD- WHICH I DONT THINK HE IS
Is Ram Gopal Verma Ke Sholay really the film's official title. I thought it was just simply going to be Sholay like the original.Shakirfan 23:37, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Title of the movie, pt. II
What's going on with the title of this movie? To the best of my knowledge, it's Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, and that's also what IMDb says. The fact that on the cover it says "Ram Gopal Varma Ki AAG" doesn't change that. What's the reason for the name change? —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 20:40, 1 June 2010 (UTC)
