His separation with Javed Akhtar
He believes that everything in life has an expiry date. Recently, after many years they came together on many interviews and got emotional because of this breakup.
Recognition for the writers
Until pair of Salim-Javed started writing films, no writer used to get recognition. Writers were not even getting credit in the film numbering. Because of their efforts, writing became big commercial success in films.
When a film was released and their name was not their on the posters, he and Javed sent few painters in the city and asked them to write their names on the posters as writers. It shows how much they had passion, proud and love for their writing work.
He says that when he and Javed used to write, they would write complete script with ‘The End’ on it. He is proud that many film people acknowledge their writing work. As he was getting older and he had responsibility of his children (off-course when his sons started working) he took retirement from writing and got involved into day to day family responsibilities.
His advise to people who want to do similar things
He believes that one need to be genuine. You can write a film or something but you can’t control how people will respond to it. He also believes that there’s nothing wrong if you have to remake a scene or part of film before release if you believe that there’s some shortcoming in the it or something need to be improvised.
