Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter to eulogize lyricist Javed Akhtar as he made a statement at an event that recently happened in Pakistan. At the event, Javed made a statement about the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai, and said that Indians must not forget that the perpetrators of the attacks were Pakistani.
In the video that Kangana shared, Javed Akhtar is seen addressing a gathering, where he said that as someone, who has witnessed firsthand the horrors of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai, it would be wrong to expect Indians to ignore that the perpetrators of those attacks are perhaps still living freely in Pakistan. Speaking to the crowd in Urdu, he said, “The attackers weren’t from Norway, or from Egypt. They are still present in your country, so you should not be offended if an Indian complains about this.” He also said that while India has hosted several Pakistani artists in the past, Pakistan has never hosted singer Lata Mangeshkar.
Taking to Twitter, the actor posted along with a clip of Javed Akhtar making the remark, “Jab main Javed saab ki poetry sunti hoon toh lagta tha yeh kaise Maa Saraswati ji ki in pe itni kripa hai, lekin dekho kuch toh sachchai hoti hai insaan mein tabhi toh khudai hoti hai unke saath mein. Jai Hind. Ghar mein ghuss ke maara.. ha ha. (Whenever I listen to Javed Saab's poetry I feel like Goddess Saraswati has indeed blessed him, but see there must be some truth within a person that is why divinity resides within him. Jai Hind. He made them listen to the truth in their own land.”
Here's the video:

This deviation from the expected course of events have taken fans by surprise, given the earlier strife between the duo. Javed had earlier filed a defamation complaint against Kangana in November 2020, where he claimed that the actress had hinted at him during an interview while referring to a ‘coterie’ existing in Bollywood, following the turn of events after late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's alleged suicide in 2020.
Kangana Ranaut had also furnished a counter complaint in the court against Javed Akhtar for alleged ‘extortion and criminal intimidation'. According to her complaint, Javed Akhtar had forced her to tender a written apology to her co-star and alleged ex-boyfriend Hrithik Roshan.
