Salim Khan is giving away one of his precious trophies to the directors of CHILLAR PARTY, which is son Salman Khan's maiden production venture.
The legendary scriptwriter, who along with partner Javed Akhtar, had won the Filmfare award for ZANJEER (1973), handed over the trophy to Vikas Bahl and Nitesh Tiwari after watching the film as a token of appreciation for their good work.

"This is my way of appreciating good work that I come across." He adds, "Salman has associated himself with a good product. If films like CHILLAR PARTY work, good films will be encouraged. We should appreciate such movies."
He adds, "CHILLAR PARTY is genuine, honest and compassionate. It's also difficult to make because the cast includes untrained kids and a dog. I hope such films are made more often."
The director duo is, of course, elated. "It's a great feeling. As far as awards go, Salim sir's appreciation has sorted that part. Seriously, we couldn't have asked for a bigger compliment. Now, we wait for the audience's response." says Vikas Bahl.
