Story writers don't get good opportunities, says Kabir Khan
Mumbai: Director Kabir Khan, who has delivered blockbusters like "Ek Tha Tiger" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" with superstar Salman Khan, says he shares a comfortable working relationship with the actor.
“I share a comfortable working relationship with Salman. Moreover, after two major hits, I am definitely going to make another movie with him. However, right now I cannot tell if it will be my next film or not," Kabir said here.
He also disclosed that apart from Salman, he is teaming up with another star, Hrithik Roshan. Kabir is working on the final draft of the script.
“We are discussing with Hrithik for another project. As soon I will be finishing my script, we will be working on that.”
The "Kabul Express" director thinks that though a story is considered as a backbone of a film, it does not get much importance.
“I am sure there are some great writers out there but they do not get good opportunities. While a story should be a backbone of a film, unfortunately, scripts are not given much weightage. Also in terms of money, it does not make sense while you are making Rs.50 crore film, and paying a writer only Rs.25 lakh.”
However, the director feels there is a shortage of good scripts at a time when directors are turning into scriptwriters.
“I don’t get a good script to make a movie. I have to write my own script and it takes three to four months to finish the story. Someday I hope to get a script which I feel like making a movie immediately after reading. However, that has not happened until now.
