If Gabbar Singh was alive today, he would have gone into a full-on tizzy.
An upcoming slick-flick Qayamat Hi Qayamat has not one, not two, but FIVE villains doing a rehash of Gabbar Singh — Bollywood’s greatest villain ever. And just like Sholay, giving them company, is the nimble-footed Basanti… oops, we mean, the spunky Sambhavna Seth.
But the girl rues the absence of an Amitabh Bachchan or Dharmendra! “The film is surefire fun, but I’d have been happier with a dialogue like ‘Tera naam kya hai Sambhavna?’ from the action men,” she laughs.
In a way, Sambhavna is not new to Basanti. She won the dance reality show Dancing Queen some time ago, which was judged by none other than Hema Malini. In fact, Sam (as she is fondly called), also did a Gabbar-Basanti skit for it, after which a visibly ‘upset’ Hema Malini walked out of the set in a huff!
Sam was shocked and saddened as she otherwise found the yesteryears superstar very loving and affable. It was only when the episode was aired, she realized that Hemaji had actually pulled a fast one on her.
