No actress could play 'Basanti' like Hema Malini: Esha
Actress Esha Deol feels that making remake of 1975 blockbuster Sholay would remain a pipe-dream for Bollywood as no contemporary actress could step into the shoes of 'Basanti', the role epitomised by her mother, veteran actress Hema Malini.

"It is not possible to remake Sholay as nobody would be able to do the role of 'Basanti' as done by Hema Malini. There is no alternative in the film industry who can play the role of 'Basanti' like Hema Malini," Esha told the PTI.

Taking a dig at Ram Gopal Verma who came up with Aag in 2007, the official remake of Sholay, Esha said, "Ram Gopal Verma tried to produce new Sholay, but it was unsuccessful." Esha, who had made her acting debut in Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe, said she was more inclined to classical dancing and studying Indian culture. "The classical and folk dances have their own importance which is different from the dances in films," Esha said, adding she was attracted towards dancing since her childhood.
