When Salman Khan's father Salim Khan said he wanted to travel and drink in old age but his kids keep him busy

Veteran screenwriter and producer Salim Khan had once said that he wanted to enjoy his life, travel, drink with friends and get together with them once his children grow up but that plan didn't work out for him. Most of you are aware that Salim Khan is the father of superstar Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sohail Khan, Alvira Agnihotri and Arpita Khan Sharma. His children are all grown up now and he has many grandchildren even. Candidly speaking about how his life turned out differently than he had expected, he had said in an interview some years back and we quote: 'I used to think that when my kids would grow up, will start working, when I would be economically self-sufficient, toh main ghumuga, daru piyuga, aaram karuga, and party karuga. But these five kids meant five times the work for me.' He continued, 'For everything, they go to daddy. They come to me when their cars run out of fuel.. what have I got to do with it? They get notice, they come to me.. for income tax, I just don't get any free time. I get calls at 11 in the night that this or that person wants to meet me.' Salim Khan, as most of you know, was one half of the dynamic screenwriting duo Salim–Javed, along with Javed Akhtar. He and Javed Akhtar wrote the screenplays, scripts and stories of many blockbuster Bollywood films including 'Sholay', 'Seeta Aur Geeta', 'Zanjeer', 'Deewar' and 'Don', among others. They were the most successful screenwriters of their time. However, they split up in 1982. In an old interview, Salim Khan shared the reason behind it. He was quoted as saying, 'We were near Javed's house one evening when Javed told me he wanted to split, that he'd been thinking about it for some time now. I got up, shook hands and started walking towards my car. He also started to walk with me, but I held him, turned him towards his house and said, 'I can look after myself'. I came back home and didn't tell anyone about it.'
