When two artists meet there is bound to be fireworks! That was the case when Javed Akhtar met Shabana Azmi. Both of them are top professionals in their own fields. Javed Akhtar is one of the most renowned lyricist, poet and scripwriter of Bollywood and Shabana, well she is a complete package! She was one of the few actors who could rule both, the main stream masala films and parallel cinema together. We’ll take you through Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi’s love story which is nothing short of a B’wood flick!
Their love story is nothing less than a typical Bollywood film. Girl falls in love with a boy, boy falls in love the girl, what after that? Boy is already married plus he has 2 kids! Wohoo! That’s a lot of drama. But as they say, all is fair in love and war. Shabana’s parents were against their union , because they didn’t want their dear beti to get involved with a much married man and that too with someone who already has kids. But despite all the opposition, drama and war they got married and live happily together till date. It’s been 29 years of togetherness and they are still going strong. Shabana has no children of her own. The family now consists of Javed Akhtar, his children from his previous marriage, Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar, and Shabana Azmi. All is well that ends well!
