Salman Akhtar is a psychiatry and human behaviour professor at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and also a famous writer. Javed Akhtar’s sisters are Uneza Akhtar and Albina Sharma.


Jadoo was Javed Akhtar's original name; it was derived from the line 'Lamha, lamha kisi jadoo ka fasana hoga' in a poem that his father had written. Since Javed was the name that came closest to the word 'jadoo,' it was given to him as his given name. Javed Akhtar married Honey Irani and they had two children: Farhan Akhtar, a film actor, producer, and director, and Zoya Akhtar, a film writer, director, and producer.

Javed Akhtar’s paternal grandfather Muztar Khairabadi and his grandfather's older brother Bismil Khairabadi were both poets, while Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi, his great-great-grandfather, was an Islamic scholar who, in 1857, supported India's First Independence Movement out of a sense of religious duty.


Javed Akhtar’s Marriage


Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani

Javed Akhtar was married to Honey Irani, with whom he had two kids: Zoya Akhtar, a film writer, director, and producer, and Farhan Akhtar, an actor, producer, and director of motion pictures. In movies like Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya, Rock On!!, and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara with Zoya, the father-and-son team has collaborated.


Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi

Javed Akhtar and Shabana's love story was nothing short of epic. Their love story was full of ups and downs. The love story of Javed and Shabana Azmi began in 1970 when Javed was learning the art of writing from Shabana Azmi's father, Kaifi Azmi. Javed used to pay him visits in this regard. During this time, he met Shabana Azmi, Kaifi Azmi's daughter. Both became good friends, and their love story began from there. Because Javed was already married, there was a storm in their lives as soon as the news of this thing hit the media.


Honey Irani was the name of Javed Akhtar's first wife. When she found out, quarrels broke out every day in the house. Meanwhile, Javed and Honey had two children, 'Zoya Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar,' but when the fights between Javed and Honey became more intense, Honey approved Javed marrying Shabana and asked him not to worry about the children. Javed and Honey divorced after this, and he married Shabana Azmi.


Javed Akhtar’s Career

Javed Akhtar’s Career

Javed Akhtar moved to Mumbai in the early 1960s and began his career as an assistant writer in low-budget films. Javed Akhtar made his writing debut in the film 'Yakeen,' which failed to find success. However, the author later collaborated with fellow author Salim Khan. With films like 'Seeta Aur Geeta,' 'Don,' and 'Andaz,' the team of these marvellous writers stamped their duet prosperity (1971). However, the famous couple Salim-Javed tasted stardom when they penned the movie 'Sholay' which received widespread acclaim. As everything comes to an end, the duo parted ways in 1980.

Javed's career flourished as the years passed, and he received several awards for his contributions to the Bollywood fraternity. The government of India awarded Akhtar the prestigious 'Padma Shri' in 1999, followed by a 'Padma Bhushan' in 2007. The writer-poet-lyricist also won several industry awards for his exceptional work. Akhtar's songs include 'Papa Kehte Hain,' 'Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh,' and 'Kal Ho Na Ho.'

The writer-lyricist was also honoured with five National Awards for his work in films such as 'Saaz' (1997), 'Border,' 'Godmother' (1999), 'Lagaan,' and 'Refugee.' Javed demonstrated his talent in his son Farhan's directorial debut, 'Dil Chahta Hai,' which was followed by 'Lakshya' and 'Rock On.' He also wrote for his daughter Zoya Akhtar in her film 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.' As a member of the 'Rajya Sabha,' the renowned author also contributes to the government sector. Akhtar also serves as an adviser on the board of the Asian 'Academy of Film and Television.'


Javed Akhtar’s Struggles

Javed Akhtar’s Struggles

Javed Akhtar once spoke about his difficult days in Mumbai, when he didn't even have a fixed place to sleep. He claimed to have slept under trees on occasion. Javed Akhtar, the lyricist and screenwriter, was not well-off when he first arrived in Mumbai in the 1960s. He once described himself as 'homeless' at the time, sleeping 'wherever (he) fancied,' including under trees.

In a 2006 interview with the Hindustan Times, Javed discussed living in various cities but said that Mumbai was where he 'really came alive.' 'I slept wherever I pleased - sometimes on a verandah, sometimes in a corridor, sometimes under a tree where several other homeless, jobless people lived,' he explained.

'Finally, in November 1969, I got some work, which in film parlance is referred to as a 'break,'' he added. 'But my life was never that of a regular poor boy,' he said in another interview. 'I was a poor boy who was constantly barging into a rich society,'  Javed Akhtar recalls.


Javed Akhtar’s Poetry

जीना मुश्किल है कि आसान ज़रा देख तो लो लोग लगते हैं परेशान ज़रा देख तो लो 

फिर मुक़र्रिर कोई सरगर्म सर-ए-मिंबर है किस के है क़त्ल का सामान ज़रा देख तो लो 

ये नया शहर तो है ख़ूब बसाया तुम ने क्यूँ पुराना हुआ वीरान ज़रा देख तो लो 

इन चराग़ों के तले ऐसे अँधेरे क्यूँ है तुम भी रह जाओगे हैरान ज़रा देख तो लो 

तुम ये कहते हो कि मैं ग़ैर हूँ फिर भी शायद निकल आए कोई पहचान ज़रा देख तो लो 

-Javed Akhtar



कभी कभी मैं ये सोचता हूँ कि मुझ को तेरी तलाश क्यूँ है कि जब हैं सारे ही तार टूटे तो साज़ में इर्तिआश क्यूँ है 

कोई अगर पूछता ये हम से बताते हम गर तो क्या बताते भला हो सब का कि ये न पूछा कि दिल पे ऐसी ख़राश क्यूँ है 

उठा के हाथों से तुम ने छोड़ा चलो न दानिस्ता तुम ने तोड़ा अब उल्टा हम से तो ये न पूछो कि शीशा ये पाश पाश क्यूँ है 

अजब दो-राहे पे ज़िंदगी है कभी हवस दिल को खींचती है कभी ये शर्मिंदगी है दिल में कि इतनी फ़िक्र-ए-मआ'श क्यूँ है 

न फ़िक्र कोई न जुस्तुजू है न ख़्वाब कोई न आरज़ू है ये शख़्स तो कब का मर चुका है तो बे-कफ़न फिर ये लाश क्यूँ है 

-Javed Akhtar



जो बात कहते डरते हैं सब, तू वह बात लिखइतनी अंधेरी थी न कभी पहले रात लिख

जिनसे क़सीदे लिखे थे, वह फेंक दे क़लमफिर खून-ए-दिल से सच्चे क़लम की सिफ़ात लिख

जो रोज़नामों में कहीं पाती नहीं जगहजो रोज़ हर जगह की है, वह वारदात लिख

जितने भी तंग दायरे हैं सारे तोड़ देअब आ खुली फ़िज़ाओं में अब कायनात लिख

जो वाक़ियात हो गए उनका तो ज़िक्र हैलेकिन जो होने चाहिए वह वाक़ियात लिख

इस बाग़ में जो देखनी है तुझ को फिर बहारतू डाल-डाल से सदा, तू पात-पात लिख 

-Javed Akhtar


Javed Akhtar’s Shayari


कभी जो ख़्वाब था वो पा लिया है

मगर जो खो गई वो चीज़ क्या थी 

-Javed Akhtar



डर हम को भी लगता है रस्ते के सन्नाटे से 

लेकिन एक सफ़र पर ऐ दिल अब जाना तो होगा 

-Javed Akhtar



ऊँची इमारतों से मकाँ मेरा घिर गया 

कुछ लोग मेरे हिस्से का सूरज भी खा गए 

-Javed Akhtar



आप भी आइए, हम को भी बुलाते रहिए

दोस्‍ती ज़ुर्म नहीं, दोस्‍त बनाते रहिए

-Javed Akhtar


तमन्‍ना फिर मचल जाए, अगर तुम मिलने आ जाओ

यह मौसम ही बदल जाए, अगर तुम मिलने आ जाओ

-Javed Akhtar
