Veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan loved Shoojit Sircar's newly released film Vicky Donor so much that he called the young director to his residence and presented him with an award.
Salim Khan, who has written scripts for many blockbuster movies including Sholay and Don, watched Vicky Donor and called the director to award him with one of his own Filmfare trophies.
"I couldn't believe it was Salim Khan when I received the call. He said, 'I saw your film with 10 women in my house and we all loved it. I don't know how you made this film. I even spoke to your scriptwriter. Both of you have done a commendable job so I want to give you an award from my side'," Shoojit Sircar said.
The director then went to Salim's house and the 76-year-old presented him a Filmfare trophy.
"He said that if this script was offered to him he would have turned it down because he couldn't have handled such a subject. After giving me the black trophy he asked me to hand it down as a legacy if I like somebody else's work after some years. It was a very humble gesture on his part," Shoojit Sircar added.
Vicky Donor, a film based on the concept of sperm donation, stars Annu Kapoor, newcomers Ayushmann Khurana and Yami Gautam.
