Hollywood Remake of Sholay ~ Sea of Flames !

Hollywood Remake of Sholay …

Amidst all the Cricket World Cup 2011 frenzy, I thought of watching movie 'Just Go With IT' starring Jennifer Aniston & Adam Sandler. The movie was good but within 10 minutes of the start of movie, I had 'I have seen this movie before' kind of feeling, the same feeling that you have when you watch those Hollywood inspired Bollywood movies. Yes this movie had a storyline similar to Salman Khan Starrer “Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya”.

I was somehow happy that bollywood has managed to reach to a level where Hollywood is taking inspiration from our movies (it could also be a mere coincidence though). While returning back from the movie, I had a weird thought, What if a remake of Sholay was made in Hollywood ?, Who would be in the star cast, What would be the movie theme ? & some similar idiotic thoughts which I felt should share with you all :
