Sholay 2D & Sholay 3D: Set for Historical March 2015 Release in Pakistan

If all goes well, Sholay fans in Pakistan will finally get to see the film as it is best experienced - on the 70mm screen. Nadeem Mandviwalla of Mandviwalla Entertainment, a leading Pakistani distributor and exhibitor, plans to release the film in 2D and 3D. The expected release date is March 20, 2015. 

The film will have a limited release at select theaters. Mandviwalla described Sholay with terms such as 'unique' and 'timeless classic'."The magic of watching this movie in theaters is awesome," he added. 

As press reports suggest, most Pakistanis have seen pirated versions of the movie, none has had the fortune of viewing Sholay in a theater. For sheer fun and entertainment, we do hope the fans get their share of cinema. 

We may not be singing yeh dosti yet, but surely you can't grudge Sholay to come between us, would you? Awaiting more news on the historical release.
