At Anil Kapoor's birthday bash last Thursday, iconic Bollywood screenwriting duo Salim-Javed spent quality time after many years
Anil Kapoor celebrated his birthday on Thursday night with close friends and family.
It was a grand evening, but what made it a truly memorable night was when two screenwriting legends, Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar, buried the hatchet and greeted one another warmly.
Our source said, "Javedsaab was sitting with Anupam Kher and Firoz Khan when Salim Khan entered the party late at night. Salimbhai was disturbed by the turn of events, in which Salman had slapped a fan who was getting too close for comfort.
Once everyone came up after solving the problem, everyone surrounded Salimbhai saying that it is okay. That's when Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan came face to face. Anil Kapoor, who saw a potentially awkward situation, joined in and started a conversation about the films that they used to do.
The conversation went on for an hour after that; Salimbhai and Javedsaab were seen having an animated conversation. It was a sight to watch the two legends together."
When contacted Anil Kapoor said, "I couldn't have asked for a better surprise birthday gift. Two legendary writers sitting and chatting. I am glad that my birthday party was instrumental in getting them together."
When contacted Javed Akhtar said, "In Bombay, you keep bumping into people. But yes, our meeting was very warm and friendly. We were standing among a group of friends. He was in a very good mood. But then again, nothing dramatic happened."
When asked if they spoke about their past work, he said, "Yes, in a group discussion, these things did come up." When asked if it was awkward to have a conversation with him, he said, "No, not at all.
It was never awkward over all these years. We have bumped into each other many times in the past."
When asked if they would work with each other in the future, he laughed and said, "Ab future ke bare mein kaun baata sakta hai. Your guess is as good as mine."
