In one of his tweets, the lyricist referred to the aforesaid sportspersons as 'hardly literate.'Javed Akhtar controversy

• British filmmaker Leslee Udwin's 'India's Daughter (Nirbhaya)' documentary became a matter of heated debate at the time of its release. Since the film also contained an interview of one of the convicts, the parents of the victim urged the government to halt its release. As a result, the government wasted no time in banning the controversial documentary. However, Javed Akhtar and a number of other politicians were of a different view. In one of the parliamentary sessions, he said, "Accha hua ki documentary bani, ab pata chalega kitne log hain jo uss rapist jaise soch rakhtey hain" (It is good that this film was made, it will reveal how many men think like Nirbhaya's rapist).
