When Amitabh Bachchan wanted a climax speech, that would leave everyone speechless, he requested writer Javed Akhtar to write the lines for him. Javed obliged to do so. Also, Salman Khan asked his father Salim Khan to write a few lines, before Amitabh's speech. Just minutes before the shoot, Salman called his father and asked him to write the script insisting that he could do so even in half an hour. Flattered by son's compliments Salim wrote the script, which was acceptable to Ravi Chopra.
