Meri Duniya Hai Tujhme Kahin, Tere Bin Mai Kya Kuch Bhi Nahi – we talk on lengths about the bond between a father and his daughter but rarely acknowledges the relationship of a father with his son. If a daughter is the princess of her father, then it is his son, who would take care of his kingdom. A son always looks up to his father and always considers his father as his biggest inspiration. When mothers play a major part in nurturing her kids, a father’s role is equally important as he is responsible for shaping his kid’s overall being.

Salim Khan, the man behind cult movie scripts like Sholay, Deewar, Zanjeer, Seeta Aur Geeta and Trishul has changed the entire 80s movie's scenario. Not many people know this, but Salim Khan is responsible for creating the 'angry young man' character for Amitabh Bachchan and launching his career. The guiding light of the Khan-khandan, Salim ji has always been an inspiration for his kids. From supporting them throughout their career choices to guiding them through their thick and thin, he has always played the role of an ideal father.
The man responsible for the screenplays of cult movies has a completely different take on his son, Salman Khan’s films. Salman Khan and his team from Dabangg 3 went to promote their film on The Kapil Sharma Show. As per the reports of News 18, during the show, Kapil asked Salman whether he shows the scripts to his father before finalising the film. To this, Salman replied that his father never believed in his scripts. Talking about the same, he revealed, “I hardly ever shared scripts with him because he never trusted my scripts. Woh bus kehte the pitegi (he would just say that the film will be a flop)."
On the same show, Salman also talked about narrating the script of Dabangg 3 to his father Salim Khan and his reaction to it. He revealed, "I didn't narrate him the entire script of Dabangg 3 but I told him half of the script towards the end, and he very much loved it." The third instalment of Dabangg series, Salman Khan starrer Dabangg 3, directed by Prabhu Deva is all set to hit the theatres on December 20, 2019. The film also marks the debut of Mahesh Manjrekar’s daughter, Saiee Manjrekar. (Also Read: Anam Mirza And Mohammad Asaduddin Compete For A 'Dulha VS Dulhan' Cricket Match Post Their Wedding)
The entire Khan pariwaar is an epitome of love and has always been giving family goals. From festivals, birthdays to anniversaries, the Khan-khandaan makes sure to celebrate every festival together. On November 24, 2019, Salim ji had turned 84 and wishes from all walks of life had poured in. Among all the wishes, one special wish which caught our attention was from Salman Khan. Salman had taken to his Instagram handle and had wished his father with an unseen image and had captioned it as “Happy bday daddy.”
Salim ji’s children share a very warm rapport with him. Salman has hosted many reality shows, from Dus Ka Dum to Bigg Boss. In a throwback episode of Dus Ka Dum, Salman had asked a celebrity guest "How many percent of Indians are scolded by policemen for romancing in public?” And before the celebrity guest could answer the question, Salman had revealed that his father, Salim Khan preferred him spending some quality time with his girlfriends at home rather than in public spaces. Such a cool father!
During the episode, Salman Khan had stated, “These couples are helpless as there are around 8-10 people in a small house. These youngsters cannot afford to book a hotel as society takes it in another way. My father gave me a clear-cut instruction when it came to girlfriends. He gave us permission to spend time at home rather than roaming around the city. The same instruction was applicable to my sisters as well. If they have any good man in their life, they should first tell their parents and not hide anything from them. He has given us the right to take the decision on whom to marry and whom not to marry."
