73-year-old Javed Akhtar has written many a character, who have busted a move during a song in a Hindi film. But a video from Isha Ambani’s bash is going viral because it shows the Bollywood veteran dancing effortlessly to Shola Jo Bhadke. And he’s joined by wife Shabana Azmi, Javed Jaffery and Urmila Matondkar.
This happened in Udaipur, where Isha Ambani is getting married to Anand Piramal. The guest-list includes everyone from Hillary Clinton, Beyonce to Bollywood celebrities including Aamir Khan & Kiran Rao, and the recently married couples – NickYanka and DeepVeer. The sangeet ceremony even saw performances by Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri Khan, Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Interestingly, it was this video from elsewhere, that went viral. Shabana Azmi is rejoined by her on-screen daughter from Masoom, Urmila Matondkar, after nearly 35 years. Akhtar, who is a prolific screenwriter and lyricist in Bollywood, danced with abandon and that put a smile on everyone’s face including actor Javed Jaffery – a dancer by profession.
