‘Pathaan’ Writer, Abbas Tyrewala On The Shah Rukh Khan-Salman Khan scene: “I had to be present on the set because they… ” – Exclusive Interview | Hindi Movie News
So, has the ‘Pathaan’ director retained all his dialogues? Or did SRK and Salman Khan give their inputs in ‘Pathaan’? Well both did. At times, Salman wants to do the scenes in his own way. And SRk, Tyrewala says, knows perfectly well which films need him to hold back- say ‘Chak De’ for instance- but certain films need him to be the usual SRK, like ‘Pathaan’ certainly did. FYI, Tyrewala hadn’t yet seen the film when we connected with him this morning. “I couldn’t get a ticket in Goa yesterday but I have managed to get one for today and am going to see it,” he says excitedly.
Coming back to the SRK-Salman scene specifically, Tyrewala says that both had their share of inputs and were particular about what they themselves and even the other one had to say.
Tyrewala almost disappeared from the directors’ arena, soon after ‘Jhoota Hi Sahi’ in 2010. He explains why and he also hints quite loud and clear that he is inclined now a lot towards the OTT medium when it comes to direction. “The writer in me has increased and strengthened,” he adds.
