Javed Akhtar at a recent ABP event added that his statement became too big and he feels embarrassed. He also said that he feels he should not go to such events. “Yaha aya to laga pata nahi third World War jeet ke aya hoon (as if I won the third world war). The people and the media have so many reactions. I was embarrrased aisa kya keh diya? Itni baat to kehni padegi, chup rahein kya (we have to say as much, should we just shut up)?" said Akhtar. The lyricist further added that he has now received messages informing him that people in Pakistan are being questioned on how he even got a visa. When asked was he scared to speak his heart out while sitting in Lahore? Javed replied that he is not scared to speak such controversial statements in the country where is he born and will die, so why should he be scared in a country that he was only visiting for two days?
Javed Akhtar’s comment in the viral video from Pakistan
In the video which is grabbing all the limelight, Javed Akhtar was asked by the Pakistani audience "You have visited Pakistan so many times. When you go back do you tell your people that these are good people? They aren't just bombing us but also greeting us with garlands and love?" The lyricist replied, “We should not blame each other. It will solve nothing," Mr Akhtar responded. "The atmosphere is tense, that should be doused. We are people from Mumbai, we have seen the attack on our city. They (attackers) did not come from Norway or Egypt. They are still roaming free in your country. So if there is anger in the Hindustani's heart, you can't complain," he added.
