[pointing at something]

Older Salim: We used to live right there, man. Now, it's all business. India is at the center of the world now, bhai. And I... I am at the center... of the center. This is all Javed bhai's.

Jamal Malik: Javed Khan... the gangster from our slum? You work for him?

Older Salim: Come on, who else do you think would save us from Maman's guys, huh?

Jamal Malik: What do you do for him?

Older Salim: Anything he asks.

[pause in conversation, as Salim's phone rings]

Older Salim: He's coming. You need to go now. Take my card.
