Javed Akhtar opens on Modi biopic row

The biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi before it hit the screens has given enough feeder to be at the end of receiving flak.

Opening up on the row, lyricist Javed Akhtar whose name was given in the poster has now opened up stating, “They gave my name in the poster as the songwriter of this film. I was never the songwriter of this picture. Why give my name on the poster? If you want to thank or honour me, tell me why did you deprive AR Rahman (composer) from it? It is against the practice and tradition, there has to be basic honesty. They had no business to pretend that I am the songwriter of the film”.
