DID YOU KNOW: Nobody watched Sholay when it was first released. Real bullets were used during the shooting, and reportedly, a bullet nearly missed Amitabh Bachchan. One of the most interesting lesser known facts about the cast of Sholay is, Jaya Bachchan who played the role of Thakur’s widowed daughter-in-law was actually pregnant in real life. She was pregnant with her daughter Shweta during the shooting of the film and later during the premiere of Sholay, Jaya was expecting her son Abhishek.
