Javed Akhtar has proven himself as a screenwriter through epic movies like ‘Sholay’, ‘Zanjeer’, ‘Deewar’, ‘Trishul’, ‘Don’, ‘Shaan’, ‘Kaala Patthar’, ‘Betaab’ and ‘Mr India’.
He then took the route of a lyricist and even won awards for ‘Border’, ‘Refugee’, ‘Lagaan’, ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha’, ‘Ghar Se Nikalte’, ‘Khwabon Ke Parinde’, ‘Jee Le Zara’ and more.
It is always a delight to hear him talk and give speeches and now, Akhtar has even step foot into acting with Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Manto’.
Deccan Chronicle exclusively caught hold of his first look and it has intrigued us to a great extent since it’s something we’ve never seen Javed Akhtar wear.
In a lawyer suit, with white hair and reading glasses just adding to the look, Akhtar is all set to make an impression like never before!
Also starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Paresh Rawal, Gurdas Maan, Rasika Dugal, Divya Dutta, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Tillotama Shome, Shashank Arora, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Ranvir Shorey, Ila Arun and Rajshri Deshpande, ‘Manto’ was lauded at Cannes this year and is releasing on 21 September in India.
