Rumours are rife in Bollywood that Esha Deol will play her mother Hema Malini ’s role in the remake of Sholay to be made by Ram Gopal Varma .
Hema says that Basanti’s character was conceived for her only. However, her daughter Esha is equally capable of acting as Basanti, she adds.
Esha, who has made a place for herself in Bollywood by successfully playing a variety of roles, is reported to be very excited with the proposed role of Basanti.
Esha says she will not leave any stone unturned to justify this historical character that is remembered even today by millions of viewers after several decades and considers this role as the most privileged one for herself.
If these rumours are true, then the casting of the main characters of the remake of Bollywood’s most popular film is complete.
