In Delhi’s biggest Urdu fair ‘Jashn-e-Rekhta’, when Javed Akhtar, a personality of Urdu literature, was flipping a book, his tongue came out for the writer – ‘You have done amazing work, this photo is of my own’. Don’t have it, from where did you get it? You worked so hard on a person like me, if you had done it on someone else, you would have got PhD.

This book was ‘Jadunama’. The book is written by Arvind Mandloi and published by – Manjul Publications. This book contains stories and tales of becoming Javed by magic.

During this, while discussing the book and remembering his past, he said that ‘once when he passed in front of Kohinoor Mills in Mumbai with daughter Zoya, he told her that once during the days of struggle, he bought gram for 20 paise from here. Had bought and passed through here by walking 8 miles. He expected that the daughter might become emotional, but Zoya said- ‘Then 20 paise me bahut chana must have come.’ As soon as this story was over, the gathering started laughing. Then he said that my daughter Zoya’s sense of humor is amazing.

Javed saheb robbed the audience with his sense of humour.

On the occasion of book launch, Javed Saheb told many stories. His sense of humor captivated the crowd.

When the atmosphere became serious, he said that there is no bigger problem than hunger in the world, before this everything is meaningless.

Javed Akhtar did not forget to congratulate Vikas Rakheja of Manjul Publication on this occasion.

‘Poetry is done with seriousness and satisfaction’
On the question of no new book coming after two books named ‘Tarkash’ and ‘Lava’, he said that commercial films are made keeping in mind the choice of the audience, while the poetry of the book is serious and comforting. Any idea that is complete and unique, only then I can write. Otherwise he doesn’t write.

Writer Mandloi told the secret of Salim-Javed’s pair
Mandloi, the author of ‘Jadunama’, told that when he talked to GP Sippy during the course of the book, he revealed a secret of Salim-Javed’s pair. ‘Sholay’s dialogues were written by Javed Akhtar, he wrote dialogues in other films as well.’ Regarding the title Jadoonama, he told that Javed Sahab’s nickname is Jadoo, so decided to name the book ‘Jadunama’ which covers the parts of life.

Listen to the secret of getting a magical name…
In the book written on Javed Akhtar, the secret of Javed Saheb’s magic name has been revealed. When his father Jahannisar Akhtar was married by the name of Jaadu, he had said a poem. Whose line was- ‘Lamha-lamha kisi jadoo ka fasana hoga’, so in this way his nickname became Jadoo. Javed means ‘immortal’ and Akhtar means ‘star’, combining both the words ‘Amar Sitara’.
That empty room of Saifia College
Bhopal’s Saifia College is mentioned in the book, he says that I was such a student of this college, from which fees were never charged. This was possible only in Bhopal.

He has mentioned Wahajuddin Ansari, Ejaz Ansari, Fateullah, Ehsan Mulla, Mannan Bhai in the memories of Bhopal. There is a whole chapter in the book on the journey of Bhopal.

I was happy when I had 27 paise in my pocket when I came to Mumbai.
Leaving Bhopal on 4 October 1964 reached Mumbai. Had to leave the father’s house here only after 6 days, then there were 27 paise in the pocket. I was happy that someday in life even new 28 paise will come in my pocket, then I will be in profit. Here began a long story to step into the film world.
Honey Irani met on the sets of the film
Met Honey Irani on the sets of the film Sita-Geeta. Later got married. But after some time they got divorced. But no one could spoil our friendship, nor could the breakup of our relationship bring bitterness in the children. The credit for this feat goes to Honey Irani.
