We all know about Shabana Azmi playing a cameo on Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor’s Indian adaptation of international series '24'. But now her husband, lyricist Javed Akhtar is also a part of the show. Akhtar, who had earlier said in his interviews that he will never write for television, has penned some lines for a powerful speech that actor Neil Bhoopalam, who plays the role of a Prime Ministerial candidate in the show on Colors, will be seen giving.

Sources say that the speech that Akhtar has penned is quite a bold one, focussing on the development of the nation.
