Recently Javed Akhtar blasted the makers of upcoming film “PM Narendra Modi” as they added his name in the credit list when he isn’t associated with the film in any manner and now his wife Shabana Azmi has also come forward to support her husband.
She posted on twitter: "It is quite clear this was done with deliberate intentions to mislead public into believing that @Javedakhtarjadu has written the songs for Mr PM Narendra Modi when the song 'Ishwar Allah tere jahan mein' is from @IamDeepaMehta film '1947:Earth'."
Javed Akhtar had earlier said about this blunder: "I am shocked to find my name on the poster of this film. Have not written any songs for it.”
Film’s producer Ssandip Singh had also clarified the issue, he had said: "Javed sahab is a senior writer in our country. We have grown up listening to his songs. We have used one of his old songs 'Ishwar Allah' from '1947:Earth' and gave him credit. T-series is our music partner. I did not get any call from him and so I also did not call him. He spoke about it on Twitter, so even I replied there. But he could have called us."
The biopic has been under the controversy radar ever since it was announced, firstly people claimed it a propaganda film and then the Javed Akhtar’s fiasco happened. The trailer of the film was also trolled for being very partial. The film is slated to release on April 5.
