Together they wrote classic super hits such as ‘Zanjeer’ (1973), ‘Deewaar’ (1975) and ‘Sholay’ (1975) to name a few, and having not worked together in over 25 years, there has been much wonder as to when Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar will work together again.

There were many rumours regarding the great writing pair joining forces once more, but nothing was confirmed. Now with the release of ‘Sholay 3D’ on the horizon, both Akthar and Khan have expressed that they would like to work together again. “Everything depends upon the script and casting is a very important department,” Times of India reported Khan stating. Akhtar was also reported saying, “You never know there are possibilities. Have some patience.”

After claiming huge success with the films that they worked on together, Akhtar and Khan split right at the peak of their career. Talking about moving on after so many years, Khan told reporters, “Difference of opinion always happens, but you can always sort that out.” Things seem to be looking up for the writing duo, here’s hoping something worth writing for comes their way soon, so the can work ��their magic once again.
