Main aur meri Tanhayiyi, aksar yeh baathein karthe,
tum hoti, toh aisa hota, tum hoti toh waisa hota....

Immortal lyrics..... engrained in our memories, lines which symoblise the essense of Romance....  And the author of these words - none other than Javed Saab.

Javed Saab is the son of Well-known Urdu poet and film lyricist Jan Nisar Akhtar and Safia Akhtar, teacher and writer, Javed Akhtar belongs to a family lineage that can be traced back to seven generations of writers. The highly respected Urdu poet, Majaz was his mother's brother and the work of Muzter Khairabadi , his grandfather, is looked upon as a milestone in Urdu Poetry.

With his one time partner, Salim, he scripted some immemorable films like
Zanjeer', 'Deewar',' Sholay', 'Haathi Mere Saathi', 'Seeta Aur Geeta', 'Don', 'Trishul', etc. Salim-Javed as a writer-duo gave to Amitabh Bachchan and to Indian Cinema the memorable persona of the 'Angry Young Man'.

Post his split with Salim, he wrote the scripts for Saagar, Mr. India, Betaab etc.
