Shabana Azmi watches ‘Neerja’ with Farhan’s ex-wife Adhuna


Veteran actress Shabana Azmi watches ‘Neeraja’ with her daughter-in-law Adhuna Bhavani who has now separated from Farhan Akhtar. Though Adhuna and Farhan have now separated, Shabana still shares a cordial relationship with Adhuna. The saas-bahu also posed for the camera.

Once Shabana Azmi was asked about Adhuna and Farhan’s divorce, the talented actress warned to walk out of the interview. She says she does not owe any explanation to the world about her son Farhan Akhtar's separation from his wife Adhuna.

Farhan and Adhuna called it a quit after 16 years of relationship. The couple announced their separation by issuing a joint statement.

Asked about the split Shabana Azmi told PTI, "I don't think I owe the world any explanation."

The actress refused to comment on the break-up.

Shabana Azmi, who plays Sonam Kapoor's mother in the biopic ‘Neerja’ speaks about her role.

"There is a huge arch in the mother and Neerja's character. From being an ordinary girl who does something extra-ordinary to the mother, who is a conventional one. She is concerned if her daughter has eaten her food or not.

"Yet she embraces the fact that her daughter died doing something heroic. So, a character which has an arch is always interesting to do," she said.

Shabana Azmi's husband and noted lyricist Javed Akhtar praised 'Neerja' calling it excellence. He wrote: "NEERJA . What a film . Not for a second does the film lose its grip on the audience . Writing direction performances par excellence."

Sonam Kapoor's father Anil Kapoor was also at the film's screening. He wrote: "It's truly amazing , just love it".
