The famous dialogue from Gabbar Is Back movie ”Pachaas pachaas kos door jab koi rishvat leta hai toh log kehte hai mat le varna Gabbar ajeaga…” is difficult to imagine the iconic villain from Sholay mouthing this dialogue.
Akshay Kumar says ”There is no connection between the two Gabbars. To come to think of it, the only thing that is common between the two characters is violence. Sholay’s Gabbar inflicted violence on good people, but this Gabbar stands against the bad guys,”
“The title of the film was suggested by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The first sequence of the film will establish the title of the film. Gabbar is a brand when it comes to bad men in Bollywood films, and Akshay’s character in the film raises his voice against corruption. And in order to achieve that, he chooses the brand Gabbar.” he added
Akshay, who is playing a cop role on this film said ”Corruption is a big issue in India, and I liked Murugadoss’ idea of dealing with it in the film. Gabbar Is Back is based on real incidents, but we haven’t used the real names. The film is a different take on how to deal with corruption. Hats off to AR Murugadoss for writing this script 10 years back,”
Angry and merciless, Gabbar takes on the corrupt system and politicians in his own style in the film. He is not a follower of Mahatma Gandhi, and non-violence is definitely not his cup of tea. “Jaise lohe ko loha kaat ta hai, similarly at times, the only answer to violence is violence,” says Akshay.
