The video made using artificial intelligence shows the faces of the original cast morphed by the fabricated ones. In the new cast, Robert De Niro plays Amitabh Bachchan’s character Jai and Al Pacino replaced Dharmendra’s character Veeru. Julia Roberts can be seen riding Dhanno instead of Hema Malini’s character Basanti, while Jack Nicholson is wrongly credited in the video as Anthony Hopkins. He takes the place of the most iconic character of Gabbar. Not only this, actor Kevin Spacey replaced Thakur Baldev Singh in the Hollywood version of Sholay.

The viral video has invited interesting responses from social media users. While some expressed that the video was “brilliantly made”, others seemingly did not approve of the idea to replace the original cast. A user reacted saying, “This is so spot-on characterization and casting. Epic, wish it had audio.” Another expressed that the filmmaker Martin Scorsese should be the director of the project.
