Mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan is all set to play Indian cinema's biggest villain Gabbar Singh in the remake of the cult classic Sholay .

The anticipation of Ram Gopal Varma 's remake was on Saturday heightened with the filmmaker unveiling the look of an aged, greying Gabbar Singh, to be essayed by Bachchan.



At the function in Mumbai to unveil the look, Bachchan said, "We are not trying to set up a competition here. This film is only Ram Gopal Varma's interpretation of 'Sholay' and as an actor, it is my duty to depict that vision. We hope we can live up to the expectations of the audience and directors."

In the remake, Gabbar Singh is shown much more aged than the original movie, with a scar across the nose, Bachchan's trademark white beard and shabbily dressed in boots and a military shirt.

The film has been on floor for three days and is being produced by Manmohan Shetty's Adlabs and directed by Varma.

Tentatively titled Ram Gopal Varma Ki Sholay , the remake stars Bachchan as Gabbar (played in the original by late Amjad Khan), Ajay Devgan as Veeru (played in the original by Dharmendra ), Mohit Ahlawat the quiet Jai (played by Bachchan in the original), Katrina Kaif will play the widow Radha ( Jaya Bachchan essayed the role in the original), Mohanlal being cast for the role of Thakur (played by Sanjeev Kumar in the original) and Sushant Singh cast as Gabbar's henchman, Sambha.

That Esha Deol will play the role of Basanti immortalized by her mother Hema Malini in the original isn't confirmed yet.
