Shabana Azmi recently hit back at trolls who have been bashing her husband Javed Akhtar for taking a dig at politician Shashi Tharoor for his Hindi. On Monday, Shashi Tharoor had shared a video in which he was seen singing Kishore Kumar’s Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se at an event. Javed Akhtar, who is a good friend of the politician, poked fun at his pronunciation of the lyrics of the songs but was brutally trolled.

Shashi took to his Twitter account and sharing the video he wrote, “After the cultural programme by Doordarshan Srinagar for the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology, I was persuaded to sing for the Members. Unrehearsed and amateur but do enjoy!” To which Javed Akhtar replied, “Wow! We have almost a similar song in Hindi too !!!”


The fans did not take it well and bashed Javed for making fun of Tharoor. One of the fans wrote, “Typical North Indian condescension! Javed Akhtar, I challenge you to sing one song from any South Indian language intelligibly”, another wrote, “Javed sir, he must be credited for singing a hindi song being a mallu. We can’t even think of malyalam songs forget about singing.”, one more fan wrote, “🤣🤣🤣🤣 Very bad Javed Sahab. You are ridiculing Keralites efforts to adopt the National language. After Northern Command of troll army, you are inviting Southern Command also..”

But looks like Shabana came to the rescue of her husband as she asked the trolls to chill and called Javed’s remark as pure jest.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Shabana was last seen in the web series titled The Empire. The series also starred Kunal Kapoor, Drashti Dhami and Dino Morea in lead roles.
