Salim Khan Finally Breaks Silence On His Bitter Relationship With Amitabh Bachchan

-

Famous scriptwriter and film producer Salim Khan recently appeared in Arbaaz Khan's show 'The Invincibles'. In the chat show, Salim Khan revealed many things which he never shared before, including his second marriage with Helen and his first wife Salma Khan's reaction to it.

And it is not wrong to say that it has been making headlines ever since the whole chat surfaced on the internet. And you will be surprised to know the specific part of the chat show that has become the hot topic in the town is Salim's rift with Amitabh Bachchan.

For those who don't know, Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar created "the angry young man" trope in the 80s in Hindi cinema with Zanjeer, which emerged as the turning point in their career. Not only Amitabh Bachchan became the biggest star of the era but the writer's career also flourished as they went on to pen several big films.

In an interview with a leading media agency, Salim revealed that actors like Dharmendra, Dilip Kumar, and Dev Anand rejected the script of Zanjeer. No leading lady was attached to the project and many stars were not ready to do it as it was a small role. But, Amitabh Bachchan was ready to do it. So, Amitabh Bachchan reached out to Jaya Bachchan and requested her to star in it. Khan revealed, 'I suggested ki Jaya Bachchan ko le lo. She will do it and she will do it for him. Kahani bhi sunayi Jaya ko toh unhone kaha ki mera toh kuch hai nahi ismein zyada. Maine kaha ki haan ismein kuch hai nahi aapka zyada magar Amitabh Bachchan ke liye yeh ek aisi kahani hai ki yeh phod ke rakh degi."

Salim Khan said that Big B was known for his professionalism and Salim-Javed ensured to bring up his name during every project. However, after the split of Salim and Javed, Amitabh didn't keep in touch with Salim because of his reversed nature.

Salim revealed, 'Yeh joh thi relation rakhne ki responsibility, unpe thi. Aap jab bahut bade star ho jaate ho, aapki responsibility hoti hai ki usse milna julna joh bhi ho, relationship rakhna yeh aapka farz banta hai. Joh ki unhone shayad kisi wajah se nahi kiya.'

Talking about Amitabh Bachchan's work front, he was last seen in Brahmastra and Unnchai.
