Published on 30 January, 2019 at 1:13 pm By

Noted Urdu litterateur, poet and lyricist Javed Akhtar, has been a recipient of many national awards. He has won the Filmfare Award fourteen times in all four writing categories — story, dialogue, screenplay and lyrics. He has also received India’s second highest literary honour – Sahitya Akademi Award in Urdu – for his poetic collection ‘Lava.’ He has also been honoured with Padma Shri (1999) and Padma Bhushan (2007). With a career spanning over 40 years, Akhtar is holding strong to both his words and his charm.

In the words of late editor Khushwant Singh, “Javed Akhtar was born with poetry in his blood.” The celebrated writer is quite vocal about his views on many socio-political issues. When someone asked him if Shia and Sunni were different religions, he said all kinds of religious people were “equally unreasonable”.

 

 

Akhtar is also very active on social media. As an advocate of secularism in India, he quite often takes to Twitter to express his views. However, his comments often land him in trouble, but this does not stop him in speaking his heart out.

Something similar happened when Javed Akhtar lashed out at some section of Twitterati and called them paid trolls and retarded bigots and imbeciles.

However, Akhtar’s remarks did not go well with some. They hit back and said he is also a paid troll and Congress paid him through making him Rajya Sabha MP. Take a look at these replies:
