Salman’s dad to write ‘Chillar Party’ sequel

Salim Khan has agreed to come out of retirement for his son’s production

Salman Khan’s production Chillar Party took everyone by surprise with its innocent portrayal of childhood. So naturally, it will have a sequel. Isn’t that the trend nowadays? But what’s exciting is that the sequel will be written by Salman’s dad Salim Khan. In the 1970s, the veteran scriptwriter teamed up with Javed Akhtar and over the next two decades wrote hits such as Yaadon Ki Baaraat, Zanjeer, Sholay, Chacha Bhatija, Shakti and Mr India. However, the duo then broke up their partnership. Salim’s solo films failed to create the same magic at the box office. Remember Toofan and Akayla with Amitabh Bachchan? Aa Gale Lag Jaa with Jugal Hansraj and Urmila Matondkar? Or even Dil Tera Deewana and Majhdhaar with Salman? So it was not surprising when he put down his pen for good. But with Chillar Party’s success and Salman’s career on a high, Salim is ready to make a comeback. Does that mean Salman will play a significant role in the film? We don’t know yet, but we wish the senior Khan luck.
