Lyricist Javed Akhtar has revealed that he was almost left jobless because he took up the fight for copyright amendment in favour of lyricists and singers.



“The big producers didn’t want to work with me. I was without work for the past few years. But now that the amendment is a reality I don’t mind a life-time ban. Producers can stop giving me work.”
