Talking at the event Subcontinent’s famous writer Javed Siddiqui said that I was a journalist but suddenly started writing films. I got married with the help of comrades but what happened was good my wife got very good, children are all talented but Sameer is my extension.

Javed Siddiqui said that it is said on our side that the children would have divided the angels. So I wrote that what came into the heart of the angels brought me into this family like Muhammad Ali Johar, Shaukat Ali Johar my grandfather and many great people in whose company, I trained and am here before you today.

He said that “Dil Wale Dulhania Le Jayenge” has become my identity but I want to make my identity something else. He said that there was no thought of writing the story of the film, today I think that life does not go by our will but by the will of some other force. I was in journalism. During the emergency in India, there was a need to write the story of a film, so a film writer would write it, so my name was suggested, but I was selected in a three-minute meeting. At that time my hands and feet became cold. I wrote the dialogues and you liked them.

Javed Siddiqui said that my prose is unconscious, poetry emerges from the best prose. He said that whatever I wrote for myself. My sketches are my own story. Many people say that one should not write like this, but I think that a writer should not be small.

He said that when I arrived in Delhi in 1960, the progressive movement was not so active, but with it, there were great people who did not discriminate against anyone. When I got married, Sultana Apa had 700 rupees in her account, out of which she gave 600 rupees to me. All the comrades helped, thus the marriage took place in Chande, but what happened was good, the wife was very good.

About his children, Javed Siddiqui said that all are talented, but Sameer is my extension. Farida Javed said that Javed is not only a writer but also a very good person, I liked him and got married, and which brother was angry for two years.
