Amar Akbar Anthony

There have also been rumours of this Manmohan Desai classic being remade by David Dhawan. I am not sure whether this movie is being made or not.

The original was released in the year 1977 and had the stellar star cast of Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Neetu Singh, Nirupa Roy, Pran and Jeevan. It was a multi starrer in its true sense. The music was by Laxmikant Pyarelal. This is one of the best entertainers of all time with all the actors excelling in their own parts. Of course, the cult of Anthony Gonsalves continues to live on and Amitabh Bachchan has, in many interviews said that people still call out to him as "Anthony Bhai".
