As Farhan Akhtar prepares for the premiere of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Toofaan, he is overjoyed to reveal that he would be working with none other than Salman Khan for the first time. This movie, according to the actor, is incredibly meaningful since it follows the path of their dads, Javed Akhtar and Salim Khan, who are one of the most well-known writer duos in the cinema industry.
This documentary is believed to star Salman Khan in the starring role. With Salman Khan, the Toofaan actor expressed his excitement for the project.
As reported in Pinkvilla, he said, “With Salman, he and I have met and had a desire to work together. Unfortunately, nothing has ever fallen into place. But we are collaborating on something. I think that’s more special than any film can be, which is that we are collaborating on a documentary about Salim uncle (Salim Khan), and my father (Javed Akhtar) of their incredible partnership as writers. Their talent as writers individually, together as writers, and this absolute phenomena of Salim-Javed that they had.”
He added, “That to me is an incredible collaboration which I am doing with him (Salman Khan). So I am very very excited about that.”
Zoya Akhtar was also rumoured to be working on this project a few weeks ago, and she said at the time that this writer team had opened up new doors for authors in the industry. It will also be released on the digital platform.
Salim-Javed have written a number of great films, including Sholay, Zanjeer, Deewar, Trishul, Don, Shakti, and others.
After an eight-years, the actor and director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra reunited for Toofaan. The two previously collaborated on Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, which was released in 2013.
