Zindagi Bhi Ajeeb Hai Na … Jab Aap Jeena Chahte Hai, Toh Jeene Nahi Deti … Aur Jab Jeene Ki Sari Khwaish Chhod Dete Hai, Tab Kehti Hai Jeeyo!!
She is a nurturing mother, a loving house-maker, a strong-willed social activist and an enchanted human being with an awesome sense of humor!
Shabana Azmi has always maintained her spontaneity through her personality, and has never ceases to amaze us with her versatility as a woman. A National Award winning and internationally acclaimed actress, she is more than just a cinematic figure…
On her 66th birthday, let’s give this all-rounder a standing ovation and learn a bit about her life as a whole!
- As a Materialistic Actor
From “Ankur” to “Neerja”, Shabana has proved her quest for bold cinema even at times when women weren’t allowed to even experiment.
- As a UN Ambassador
She has extensively raised her voice against malnutrition, Child nutrition and AIDS, and is chosen by United Nations Population Fund as its Goodwill Ambassador for India.
- As a Daring Social Activist
She is an active supporter of fighting AIDS and denouncing Communalism, and has given voice to several social causes by being a part of plays and demonstrations. She is also an active associate of the National Integration Council lead by the Prime Minister of India; a member of National AIDS Commission (of India); and a Rajya Sabha member.
- As a Loving Home Maker
She is happily married to industry’s most celebrated lyricist and script writer, Javed Akhtar, and is the step mother of one of the most talented director-actor-producer duo Farhan and Zoya Akhtar. Her “friendship” with Javed is worth the appreciation, and her bond with her step-kids is too cute to handle.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHABANA JI!!
