Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar have  been the great couple. She recently talks about Javed Akhtar birthday which falls on 17 January and says – “Normally I would arrange a party, call all our close friends over for lunch. But this time I’m in London shooting. In any case with the pandemic, there was nothing to celebrate.” She says – “something special” for her husband when she returns. “Together with my parents, Javed is the biggest influence on my life and  thoughts. I married him because he reminded me of my father.”

Talking about if Javed has written Kathai aankhon wali in the film Duplicate and Ek ladki ko dekha in 1942: A Love Story for Shabana. Shabana Azmi says –  “Lies, damned lies! Not one line for me ever.”

Shabana Azmi recounts and says –  “Once during dinner he was spilling soup on his kurta. When I admonished him, he came up with these lines instantly to the tune of Abhi na jao chhod kar from the film Hum Dono: “Jo is tarha se khaoge, Toh kitna tum giraoge, Safed yeh Qameez hai, Kahan tumhe tameez hai, Jo soup ispe gir gaya, Toh jaante ho hoga kya, Yeh daag dhul na payega, Jo dhoyega batayega, Ki saabun ispe ghis diya, Yeh Daag par mita nahi, Jo tum kharaab na karo, Woh kapda hi bana nahi.”
