The Khan family had earlier got together to celebrate actor Helen’s 81st birthday on 21 November. Salman threw a lavish party for her, with his brother Sohail Khan, sister Arpita, Aayush Sharma and yesteryear actors Waheeda Rahman and Asha Parekh in attendance.


One half of screenwriting duo Salim-Javed, Salim Khan is known for his work on films such as Sholay, Deewar, Kranti, Seeta Aur Geeta and Don. In a 2014 interview with Open Magazine, Salim Khan said that contrary to popular belief, he never interfered with Salman’s career and encouraged him to make his own decisions. “When Salman entered the industry, I was accused of ‘managing’ his career. That’s not true. In fact, I even refused to sit for script narrations of his films. If I can claim to know a thing or two about anything, it’s got to be scriptwriting. Right from the beginning, Salman was encouraged to take his own decisions. Like all of us, he made mistakes, took some wrong steps, but has learnt from those,” he said.

Speaking to Asian Age ahead of the release of Bharat, Salman said he considered his father to be his teacher. “My father is my teacher in the film industry. I got scripting sense from my father. You should be morally, ethically and principally correct. Once you get these three things correct, you will be fine,” he said.
