Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and veteran actor Dharmendra, who enthralled many through their roles of Jai and Viru in the 1975 blockbuster “Sholay”, recreated the magic of their on-screen friendship 40 years later in the final episode of TV show “Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi”.
The duo, who wowed fans with their impeccable bond in the Ramesh Sippy classic, recreated the euphoria of the memorable song “Yeh dosti hum nahi todenge”, in which they were seen riding a bike with a sidecar.
Amitabh took to Facebook on Saturday to share photographs of the Star Plus show's finale, in which Dharmendra can be seen riding a bike while "Jai" is standing in the sidecar.
“When Viru and Jai met on 'Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi', then 'Ye dosti hum nahin todenge' happened. The song is so prevailing even after 40 years. Very less we get to see this. Those were the days,” Amitabh wrote alongside the photograph.
Considered as one of the biggest classics of Indian Cinema, “Sholay”, which released on August 15, 1975, also starred Sanjeev Kumar, Amjad Khan, Hema Malini and Jaya Bachchan.
Besides Dharmendra, the final episode of “Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi” will also feature his son Sunny Deol and actors Farhan Akhtar and Sonam Kapoor.
