“They thought that the times were changing and widow remarriage was a trend that was catching on with the general public. It was decided unanimously that we would reshoot some scenes. My character would be revived, and there would be a happy ending for Jaya’s character.” 

After getting the green signal, the entire team left for the studios to do a reshoot, but Ramesh asked the group to wait for some more days.

“Ramesh Ji stopped us, and he instinctively said, ‘Let’s wait till Monday and see what happens. I feel something will click’. And look what happened on Monday. History got made after that Monday.”

Sr Bachchan also asked Ramesh Sippy why Hema Malini was cast as Basanti. He said,

“See, Hema Ji in her first film with me had portrayed the role of a young widow and in the second film, ‘Seeta Aur Geeta,’ she surprised us. So, for the role of ‘Basanti,’ I felt that no one could do it apart from her. Also, there was one more thing. When we completed ‘Seeta aur Geeta’ and it became successful, it is then when we decided whatever I make after this, Dharam ji, Hema ji and Sanjeev ji must be there. And as the script of ‘Sholay’ was shaping up, it fitted perfectly.”

Well, it looks like all the hard work, re-work, and calculations for the movie turned out perfect as the film is remembered today for being iconic.
