Veeru proposes to Basanti at the top of a water tank in the movie Sholay.
However, it is the funniest scene of the movie where Veeru threatens his life and tries to kill himself for the sake of Basanti's love. This scene really became a massive hit and it is still remembered by the fans. You will not get that feeling until and unless you watch the movie.
Talking about the movie, Sholay is a story of two ex-convicts, Jay and Veeru who are hired by a former police officer to kill a notorious and ruthless bandit who had previously killed his whole family.
