Khan revealed how his children would come back from his school, beaten up by schoolmates. Surprised, he asked them what went wrong. The poor kids were beaten by their friends. They would say, “your dad shows so much of bravery on screen; he is always fighting. And look at you? You’re being beaten here”.This affected the father.

What happens, happens for good!After schooling, he joined Yusuf Ismail College from where he acquired a diploma in civil engineering. During his college days, he would write and take part in plays. One such play was ‘Local Train’ which bagged a national level award, and also fetched him a cash prize of 1500 rupees. This was a game changer in Khan’s life. Actor Dilip Kumar came to know about it and expressed interest to watch the play. Upon watching it, Kumar was so impressed that he signed Khan for two cult films; ‘Sagina Mahato’ and ‘Bairaag’. At the same time, he also drew attention of late director Narendra Bedi, producer Ramesh Behl, actress Kamini Kaushal etc. Narendra Bedi was then prepping for his flick ‘Jawani Deewani’, for which he signed Khan as the writer. This was his first introduction to fame. The industry soon came to know about this young, fresh writer.
