Javed Akhtar Reveals his Reaction if He Gets to Know Farhan and Zoya Smoke Marijuana:
Javed said in an interview, “I’ve never heard anybody committing a murder after smoking marijuana.” When asked what he would tell to his children if he gets to know they smoke marijuana, Akhtar told Barkha Dutt, “I would tell them not to do it, it’s not right. But they are grown ups. It’s like when I gave up alcohol in 1991, and haven’t taken a sip since then. I used to drink everyday. I have come to the conclusion that if you have any kind of intoxication, it can harm you. Tomorrow if I come to know my daughter smokes marijuana, I’ll tell her she shouldn’t be doing this. If she listens to me that’s fine, but if she doesn’t, she’s a grown up girl. It’s the same with my son.”
He also revealed that earlier he used to drink alcohol on a daily basis. He said, “I have never used any drug in my life. Although I was not a very disciplined young man and I used to drink a lot. I don’t believe in those reports but look at their health, their physique, their physical fitness.”
