Farhan Akhtar To Produce Documentary On Salim-Javed

In   much  of  the  1970s  and  80s  Salim Khan and  Javed Akhtar revolutionized  the way  the film industry looked at  screenwriting   and screenwriters  with their stream  of  phenomenal  hits  like Zanjeer, Deewaar, Sholay, Don, Trishul  , Shakti and  Mr India.

Salim and Javed re-wrote  the entire  profile of  screenwriters with their  uninterrupted  run at  the boxoffice.And now Javed Akhtar’s  son Farhan Akhtar and  the latter’s partner Ritesh Sidhwani of Excel  Entertainment  are  all set to produce a documentary-drama  on  the Salim-Javed phenomenon .

A  source very close to  the  development informs, “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.”

 There were  rumours that  Javed Saab’s daughter Zoya Akhtar  will  direct  the documentary.  This is   untrue.

“We are  on  the verge  of finalizing the  director. It will be someone  new,”  the source  told me.
