In 1965 we started our journey and we have wonderful and marvelous 14-15 years of collaboration. In the later year Salim got a actor like Amitabh Bachchan who was new and we were like team then. Two kind of people should not work together one who are similar and others who are totally contrast but me and Salim had large things in common but at the same time we were different.”

When the guide said it is the city of Shakespear unfortunelty one Indian did not know about Shakspear and to expain to him the guide said Shakespear is just like Salim-Javed in India. And I completely agree with the guide’s words. I have learnt so much from your craft. Salim-Javed is one of the best writers duo in the world.”
