Shabana Azmi asks trolls to “chill” after Javed Akhtar pokes fun at Shashi Tharoor’s singing – Times of India

Shabana Azmi took to her Twitter account to ask trolls to “chill” after they slammed Javed Akhtar for poking fun at Shashi Tharoor’s impromptu gig at an event. She wrote, “And all those trolls just chill. Shashi Tharoor is a good friend and Javed’s remark was in pure jest!”

The Member of Parliament recently shared a video of himself crooning one of the most popular Kishore Kumar, ‘Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se’. He sang the song at a cultural event organised in Srinagar. 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!”

Lyricist and screenwriter, Javed Akhtar commented on his post and wrote, “Wow! We have almost a similar song in Hindi too!!!”

Soon, netizens called out Akhtar for his remarks in the comment section. A user wrote, “Most probably the first thing you said and I did not like. Even though I know it is a joke,” while another commented, “Looks like Mr. Shashi didn’t support Mr. Akhtar in some matter.”

Meanwhile, there were others who also supported Javed’s comment and called it funny banter between the two.
