Popular streaming site Netflix is reportedly in talks to buy the exclusive streaming rights of Salim Khan and Javed Akhtar's documentary.
Popular director Zoya Akhtar is set to direct a docu-drama on the celebrated writer duo Salim and Javed, reports Bollywood Hungama.
Salim Khan confirmed the news on the making of the documentary to an Indian local newspaper.
Salim Khan said, "This news is absolutely true. Zoya (Akhtar) shared this idea (with me) around a month and a half back and she has started her research too."
"Zoya will also be speaking to all those people, who have worked with us in the past. It's going to be a long process. It's not a biopic but something like a documentary," Salim added.
A source stated to Bollywood Hungama that, "Netflix is in the race to get the exclusive streaming rights of this project. They are in advanced conversation with Zoya and her team and the deal is expected to be locked soon."
