He also spoke about his children, daughter Zoya and son Farhan. Javed Akhtar said that he was confident that Zoya Akhtar would do something in her life because she was always inquisitive and rebellious. She would question everything and Javed Akhtar knew that this inquisitiveness and questioning attitude would take her somewhere.

He said he had concerns about son Farhan who was always ‘agyakaari’ and would accept everything that he would say silently. He never counter questioned or went against his parents. However, he said he is very happy with Farhan’s success “It was at the age of 20 that he changed gears and grew. He has really surprised me,” he said. He went on to say that he is proud that his children didn’t compromise with their aesthetics to find success.
