Bandra - We all know about the equation Salim Khan shares with his 'Sultan' son. He always stands by him in crisis and tries to bail him out. But he has vowed not to write for his son. Salim Khan says one of the reasons why he doesn’t want to write for Salman Khan is that if a movie fails, the screenwriter would be blamed for it, but if it works well, people would praise his son for his efforts.
Talking about Salman, his father said: “It’s not that I haven’t written films for Salman. I had written a film for him – ‘Patthar Ke Phool‘ which did reasonably well too. Even today, when I pitch a script, people always have a question that ‘if it is good then why is Salman not acting?’ But I wanted to get out of that vicious circle.”
He added: “Another thing is (that) if a movie fails, it is my fault. If it is a hit, it is Salman’s efforts!”
Salim had teamed up with Javed Akhtar to form the ‘Salim-Javed’ duo that gave 1970s blockbusters like "Deewaar", "Sholay" and "Don".
