Mumbai: It's been 45 years since Ramesh Sippy's "Sholay" released, and the movie is still etched in our memories. On Friday, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who had wooed the audience with his unforgettable performance as Jai in the cult film, took to Twitter and revisited "Sholay" memories.

He posted a black and white picture that shows him attending the film's premiere along with his late parents Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan, and wife Jaya Bachchan, who essayed the role of a widow.

"At the Premiere of SHOLAY .. 15th August 1975, at the Minerva .. Ma, Babuji, Jaya and a bow tied moi .. how pretty Jaya looks .. This was the 35 mm print at the Premiere .. the 70mm Stereo sound print , first time in India was stuck in Customs.. but after the Premiere got over by midnight, we got news that the 70mm print was out of Customs .. we told Ramesh ji to get it to the Minerva .. it came .. the first Indian film on 70mm Stereo .. and I sat on the floor of the Balcony with Vinod Khanna and finished seeing this amazing result till 3 in the morning," Big B recalled.

The 1975 blockbuster also starred Hema Malini, Dharmendra, late Sanjeev Kumar and late Amjad Khan. His role of the dacoit Gabbar Singh made Amjad Khan a screen phenomenon, and continues to be the biggest draw of "Sholay" even after all these years.

Meanwhile, Big B has completed 12 years of blogging. The megastar expressed his happiness and gratitude towards his followers. He took to Twitter and penned down a few words.

He wrote, "12 YEARS of my Blog today .. began first DAY on 17th April 2008 .. today 4424 DAYs , thats four thousand four hundred and twenty four days of writing my Blog .. EVERYDAY , without missing out a single day .. ! Thank you my Ef .. love and because of you ..".

At the same time, the actor expressed how he "can't believe" how people "tolerate" his blog. He wrote: "12 years! that is simply unbelievable .. I mean not for me , but you ... how could you tolerate this Blog for 12 years! But truly without all of you .. it would never have been possible..17th April 2020 .. 17th April 2008!"

The veteran actor shared an emoji of himself which has a piercing in the tongue. He joked about it on his blog, saying: "Do not miss the tongue pierce in the memoji ; and the beard growth .. Rochelle feels its not a lawn mower I need .. I need to let it out to the goats!"

Big B recently took to social media to applaud the unity shown by human beings at a time when the world is battling the deadly COVID 19 pandemic. "Of this there is no doubt at all, that during this pandemic.. irrespective of caste colour creed or belief.. friend, acquaintance or unknown.. never before and perhaps never after has one human shown so much concern and sympathy for another.. there is but one common refrain on every lip.. be safe, be protected," he wrote.
