After a few days of this talk, Javed Akhtar went to celebrate Holi at Amitabh's house and told him that Salim did not want to work with him. When Javed narrated this incident to Salim, they had an argument over it. Salim was mad about Javed taking his name, when, in fact, it was Javed who had suggested that they stopped working with Amitabh. Three to four months later Javed decided to part ways with Salim, thus ending their long and successful association that had given the industry its first super star and a long list of blockbuster movies.
YEHI HAI RANG ROOP
According to the book, after their split was made public Amitabh Bachchan announced that he would continue to work with Javed Akhtar. Salim Khan was left out in the cold. He went without work for almost four years. Amitabh and Salim never came face to face after AKELA in 1991.
