Javed Akhtar, the eminent script writer, who along with his erstwhile partner Salim Khan, gave the iconic angry young man image to the megastar Amitabh Bachchan, but has not been very active off late in that department. We film buffs have seen Javed the lyricist regularly, regaling us with his excellent work, but the good news is that he is back as a scriptwriter too.

After lying dormant for a while Javed Akhtar is writing a script and who better than Javed Sahab himself to tell us about the kind of script that he is writing.

Says Javed Sahab, "Script can be only of two kinds, a good script and a bad script. I am trying to write the good one (laughing). See, this will be a mainstream movie, so there can be no stupid aspects in it." As to who he has in mind while writing, now that his son has turned out to be successful actor, Javed Sahab does not divulge anything as such. While he admits that he is extremely proud of his son Farhan Akhtar's achievements but says that he is just writing a script, not necessarily keeping in mind his son, Farhan the actor.

Well, Javed Sahab with a star in your own house and a director in the making (read your daughter Zoya), you do not have to look out anywhere to make a film. As for the script, we are positive that it will be good one and since a great script is what Hindi films are lacking these days this is great news indeed that Javed Akhtar is back to doing what he excelled at!
