Mumbai. Veteran Bollywood actress Shabana Azmi has revealed the secret of her happy marriage to lyricist Javed Akhtar. He said that whenever there is a fight between the two, they do not talk to each other until the mind is calm and as the mind is calm, both of them talk together. Shabana believes that it is important to give your partner some space to relax and be ready to work towards maintaining that relationship.
Speaking to the Free Press Journal, Shabana Azmi said, “It is important to maintain relationships in a good marriage. But you have to work on it. I find it strange that we are willing to make an effort with our friends and colleagues, but not with our partners. Why? Because we take each other lightly and don’t respect each other’s space. My view about love is that we should not underestimate our life partner, but give him as much space as he wants. Luckily, because we’re both doing the work we’re passionate about.”
On how they resolve their disputes, Shabana Azmi said, “One thing that has worked consistently for Javed and me is to use two magic words- ‘Give it up’. When we speak these words in the middle of a fight. Don’t get depressed, don’t let it go on for days. When both are in a better mental state, let’s talk about it one by one. Anger and haste can force you to say restless and inappropriate things that you will only regret.”
Shabana and Javed got married in the year 1984. They live together in Mumbai and have no children. However, Shabana is very close to Javed Akhtar’s first wife Honey Irani’s son Farhan Akhtar and daughter Zoya Akhtar. Farhan and Zoya Akhtar are also popular filmmakers of the industry.
