The veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar was hospitalised on November 29th because he was suffering from a crippling back pain. A day earlier, on November 28th, he was a part of the 175 year celebrations of a leading daily at Purana Qila; where Sonu Nigam was performing.
Javed ji sat through the entire event despite feeling pain in his back because he was captivated by the soulful music that was being performed at the event.
The next morning, the pain worsened so much that he could not get up and later, he was locked in his bathroom because he could not move. His wife Shabana Azmi then rushed to Delhi and admitted him into a hospital where he has been recovering. The doctors told him he can be discharged soon.
Get well soon Javed Sahab!
