Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar gave us some phenomenal movies that still continue to entice the hearts of many. Movies like Zanjeer, Deewaar, Sholay, Don, and Mr. India were some of the finest movies ever made the all the credits go to the golden duo, Salim-Javed, who changed the dynamics of screenwriting in the industry.

Salim-Javed gave life to characters that still live on due to their brilliant dialogues and storylines. As per reports, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment have teamed up to produce a documentary drama on Salim-Javed’s work and life. Earlier reports suggested that the movie will be helmed by Zoya Akhtar but recently a close source revealed that it’s going to be some new director.

As per a report on Bollywood Hungama, a close source revealed-

It will contain extensive interviews with Javed and Salim Saab and also with Amitabh Bachchan whose career was spectacularly amplified by the films that Salim-Javed wrote for him. It will also have extensive footage from the phenomenal films that the duo wrote.

We are on the verge of finalizing the director. It will be someone new.

A documentary-drama film based on the life and work of Salim-Javed will be nothing short of phenomenal and we can’t wait to know more about it.

Note: We urge you all to stay safe and follow all the necessary safety precautions. Times are tough, but we are in this together, and I’m sure this phase will soon be over. Until then, stay safe and keep your loved ones safe!
