    Meeting Salman’s Father SalimKhan

    I wanted to meet Salim Khan , of the Salim Javed fame, and the father of Salman Khan, for a long time time. I admire him, and feel that he was instrumental along with Javed, for the rise of Amitabh Bachan. And I wanted to know about that period of Indian cinema when he ruled the roost, the golden seventies.

    I could not find any link to Salimsaab, till I met someone recently, whom I know since long, but meet rarely.Thanks to him, we got an appointment with Salimsaab, and off we went.

    We met in his home, a beautiful first fllor flat in Bandra, right next to the sea, and Salimsaab was warm. I asked him about Amitabh, Rajesh khanna, and many other matters, and this is what he had to say.

    On Amitabh –

    I told him that SJ( Salim and Javed) were responsible for the discovery of Amitabh, bcs they wrote the story and script of Zanjeer. He said, that they are like jewelers who have an eye for diamond. Where others see a stone, they recognize the diamond.
    Amitabh being a poet’s son, everyone was giving him the poet roles, but we spotted the talent and felt he can do justice to the rold of the angry policeman. And we insisted on amitabh, and the rest is history.

    And he also said, that it is destiny, for all work hard, but few reach the top. Agreed Salimsaab, very much agreed.

    I asked him about this, how this came about, and he smiled and said, writing is hard work, what u see on the screen is the 50[SUP]th[/SUP] version , the first 49 ones are written, changed , till one acceptable one comes along to which all agree, and this was one such dialogue.
    On How they discovered Sonakshi Sinha for Dabang

    You know she is Shatru’s daughter, and she keeps coming to our house since childhood, so she was there right in front of us .

    Does he miss the limelight ?
    He goes for walks every morning with his friends on Bandra Bandstand
    He said he is very happy sitting at home. Salman helps the sick thru his charity called BEING HUMAN. They come with their medical files, some want cataract operatiom, some need stents, some open heart. People they don’t know, from all castes and religions.

    They assemble in the morning on the Bandra sea side, sit on benches, Salman’s person comes takes the files, which are studied by Salimsaab, who signs on the file , and returned after a couple of days to the patients, who get treated at the hospitals, money is paid directly to the hospital by cheque, no cash is given to the patients.

    And Salman spends close to 15 crores every year for this. Recently it came in the papers that in the film industry Salman Khan has paid the highest advance income tax at 20 crores.Salim saab said all the money is spent by Salman.

    It needs a big heart to give out a penny, it does not matter what u earn. When Lakshmi Mittal, who was in the list of top Richest people in the world, asked why he does not donate money , like Bill gates and Warren Buffet, he said, he is not yet old enough to donate.

    And Salman, is much younger to mittal, and look at his heart. He gives to those whom he does not know, they are strangers to him, he does not get to see them, even their files come to his dad.

    I just wonder at times, does the fear not come in, that maybe in the future I may run out of money, I will get old, will not get hero’s roles, my movies may flop, and money may stop coming in, then what ?

    The meeting lasted one hour, and it was a memorable one. I want to sit with Salim saab for a few days, to see his photo albums, the mahurat shots, the bound scripts, and look at the rich history they hide, maybe some day. Its just that he is a big man, and a busy man, so I keep my fingers crosses.

    And now I want to meet Salman Khan, not the actor, but the man of the big heart, I am curious to know how he started this charity, etc

    Have a great week, ladies and Gentlemen.

    Wine taster... humour


    At a winery, the regular taster died and the director started looking for a new one to hire.
    A drunkard with a ragged, dirty look came in to apply for the position.

    The director of the winery wondered how to send him away.

    He gave him a glass to drink.

    The drunk tried it and said: 'It's a Muscat , three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers.

    Low grade, but acceptable.'

    "That's correct", said the boss.

    Another glass....

    This is a Cabernet, eight years old, a south-western slope, oak barrels, matured at 8 degrees.

    Requires three more years for finest results'

    "Correct."

    A third glass...

    "It's a Pinot Blanc Champagne , high grade and exclusive,'' the drunk said calmly.

    The director was astonished.

    He winked at his secretary, secretly suggesting something.

    She left the room, and came back in with a glass of urine.

    The alcoholic tried it.

    "It's a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant and if I don't get the job I'll name the father."

    Mr. Kamalji, I didn't know that Salman is such a nice guy apart from being a good actor. Personally, I think, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun was made for him. I leave the cases alone. No man is perfect. The other side of the coin really is gold. What attracted me the most was about the 49 attempts to get one right scene which we enjoy, cherish, love etc. It is very difficult to be showmen. Those jokes. :) Another good one to read. Thanks for the mention. Regards, Shri.

    Wow!! It must be amazing to meet Salim Khan. The late lyricists Anand Bakshi's son is a friend of my husband and we had gone to his house and saw all the trophies and the books where he wrote the songs. It was really memorable. Incidentally, Bakshiji used to frequent Salim Khan's house. Salim Khan's wife is a great cook and even today Salman eats home food. The khan family is inspirational. They have a multi-religious family and they celebrate all the festivals together.

    Dear Vaidehi,

    like u, i am the same. But i lvoe this chap for his big heart. Others who have so much more, dont do a fraction of what Salman does. and the best part is the family is with him in this.

    God bless him always and his dad.

    Regards
