The retro Bollywood widow is all set to make a comeback in Reliance Entertainment's and Maruti Internationals DOUBLE DHAMAAL. The film sees Kangna Ranaut play a character inspired by Jaya Bachchan's role in SHOLAY.

Says a source from sets, 'The quintessential widow form SHOLAY is back with Kangana in DOUBLE DHAMAAL. Inspired by Sholay's iconic widow, played by Jaya Bachchan, the director has styled Kangana in a similar look for one of the scenes in the film. Instead of wearing normal clothes required for the scene, the director told the stylists to give Kangana an old white saree, just like the ones widows in old films wore.'

Director Indra Kumar says: 'It is a spoof in good humour. We are not making fun of or passing derogatory remarks on Jayaji and SHOLAY. It's just that in earlier times all widows were stereotyped. They wore white sarees and would only cook gajar ka halwa and aaloo parathas for their mothers. The particular scene, with all the other actors, is a spoof where she is in a widow's garb with minimal make-up. In the film, she plays a modern, smart and sexy young secretary to Sanjay Dutt.'
