Javed isnt romantic: Shabana Azmi
One of Bollywood's evergreen couple, Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi, have completed 33 years of marriage and have an amazing relationship.
However when asked what Shabana thinks of his poems, Akhtar recalled an instance - "Once Shabana and I were being interviewed and the interviewer asked, 'Shabana ji, Javed sahab ne toh itni shayari, itne romantic gaane likhe hain, asal zindagi mein bhi bade romantic honge.' Shabana replied, 'He doesn't have a single romantic bone in his body.' To which, I said, "Dekhiye bhai, jo log circus mein kartab karte hain, woh ghar mein ulte thode latke rehte hain."
Akhtar insisted that their relationship is strong because of their friendship, and said, "Yeh husband-wife bada khatarnak term hai. Is term me bahut baggage hay. Husband-wife ke rishte mein husband aksar yeh galti karte hain ki unko lagta hai universe ke centre woh hain. Aur biwi ki zindagi yeh hai ki woh mere charo taraf ghoom kar mera khayal rakhe. Kuch aap uske liye karein, kuch woh aap ke liye kar lein. Kuch aap dono ek doosre ke liye kar lein."
Great advice, we shall follow it to the T, sir!
