At the time of shooting for Sholay, which began in October 1973, an entire village named ‘Ramgarh’ in the movie had been set up on an uninhabited piece of land about three km from the Bangalore-Mysore highway.

Pointing to a vacant plot of land, where Thakur’s haveli (mansion) was erected four decades ago, Mr. Shivu, said it will not be easy for a visitor to relate to Ramgarh now, as the sets have been dismantled and there is a thick growth of vegetation.
