He exudes terror, but he doesn't live in a secluded ravine. The Gabbar Singh that Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan plays in Ram Gopal Varma Ki Sholay is suave, urbane and elegant.

The bandit from Ramesh Sippy's Sholay transforms into a devious gangster in Ramu's modern version of the movie.



At last, the shooting of the film began last week in Mumbai and Bachchan's scenes (as Gabbar Singh) were the first to be canned.

We can expect the unexpected when Ramu is at the helm of affairs. And this is what he is doing to Gabbar.

In Ramu's 'Sholay', Gabbar Singh operates from within a city and yet the cops are not able to catch him. He is a devious, elusive character who wields a scorpion-headed stick instead of the leather belt that Amjad Khan carried in the original movie.

Gabbar in Ramu's movie is in touch with international gangsters. And he kills his enemies mercilessly.

Ramu says that seeing Amitabh Bachchan play Gabbar Singh just for a few days of shooting has taken away all the awe Amjad Khan had on him.

Ramu will also make his Gabbar sing a few lines in the song 'Mehbooba Mehbooba'.

Bachchan himself has said that he is pleasantly surprised to see Ramu's interpretation of the movie and the characters in it.
