Salim and Javed are doing well with their script with Bollywod movies. They admitted that they were inflexible in natures. They give statement for that also.
Salim Khan Said: “Every person who knows his job and is aware of that is an arrogant person. There is a term in psychology — ‘the arrogance of clarity’. If you are clear ki yeh kaala hai (this is black), you will not encourage any discussion on that.”
One, of course is that we were extremely young. He (Salim) was in his 30s and I was in my 20s when we did all the work… We came to film writing and cinema when writers were totally marginalised. They were very poorly paid. Their names were not put on posters and banners. It has happened again now. So, I suppose one will have to write scripts again to set the record straight.So, there was no tradition of a writer putting his foot down or talking like an equal. Javed Akhtar said.
