Shabana Azmi Digs Out Rare Throwback Picture With Javed Akhtar To Celebrate 37 Years Of Togetherness

Till date we have been mesmerised by witnessing the 'hero' and 'heroine' of a movie, who end up living happily ever after with each other. Lucky are the ones, who get to turn this fairy tale romance into reality and we have witnessed such examples in the lanes of Bollywood. Today, we're talking about one such power couple, who has completed 37 years of marital bliss and their love for each other has only increased day by day!

In the year 1984, Javed Akhtar had tied the knot with veteran actress, Shabana Azmi. For the uninitiated, Javed Akhtar had met the love of his life for the first time at famous poet and Shabana's father, Kaifi Azmi's home and had instantly found himself being drawn towards her beauty. However, the actress had always maintained that she had deliberately ignored him because he was already married to Honey Irani and was a father to Zoya and Farhan Akhtar.

During a chat session with Twinkle Khanna on YouTube, Shabana Azmi had spilt the beans on her parents being against her relationship with an already married man, Javed Akhtar. Shabana had explained the situation at that time and her parents' reaction. She had said:

"He was a married man, he had children, it was really tough. And that's why I feel that people shouldn't speculate. It's difficult enough for the people involved and then just for gossip's sake. And obviously, people are going to say, 'You call yourself a feminist and then how have you got yourself in this situation."
