Well, as we all know that Javed Akhtar and Honey Irani’s children, Zoya Akhtar and Farhan Akhtar share a beautiful bond with their step-mom, Shabana Azmi, which reflects the good values they’ve imbibed from their mother. A few weeks ago, Shabana Azmi had posted a collage that had included a throwback picture of her husband, Javed Akhtar from his younger days and his son, Farhan’s recent photograph. The veteran actress had shown everyone the striking resemblance not in just of their physical appearance but in their nature and values too. Shabana Azmi had captioned her post as “Peas in a pod.” Take a look.
In an interview with the Verve magazine, Shabana Azmi had revealed how her journey with Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar was not as rocky as expected. Shabana ji had said, “They were both very young and it is to their mother’s credit that she did not prejudice them against me. She is the light of their lives and it’s her generosity that helped us all tide through the initial years, which are the toughest.” When asked, “Since a stepmom cannot take the place of the biological mom, how did Shabana steer the children through their tantrums, teenage rebellion, heartbreak and all of the normal aches and pains of growing up?” Shabana Azmi had retorted, “Just as I would have with my biological child. Sometimes with firmness, sometimes with kindness, sometimes with exasperation, but never with insults or humiliation. I tried to see things from their point of view.” (Also Read: Mahhi Vij Pens A Thank You Note For Her Little Daughter, Tara Jay Bhanushali)
