I always say one thing about him that to make such kind of films you not only have to be really good director or writer, but you have to be really good human being. He is really good human being and that's what works for him"
Javed Akhtar also interacted with the media about the legend composer, Late Chitragupta Shrivastava. He also unveiled the Chitragupta Chowk at the corner of the 14th road and Danda Road (Khar) along with other celebrities like Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Lalit Pandit and Mukesh Rishi on 2nd July ’2018.
In the memory of Late Chitragupta Shrivastava he said that "I think it's a minimum effort that a 'chowk' has been renamed with his name. It's a really good thing... The kind of music composers, lyricist and singers that we have seen over the years, they have enriched our contemporary culture.”
He then added, "Music produced by Chitragupta Shrivastava is our cultural heritage. We haven't done any favour on him by renaming this 'chowk' by his name and through this, we have tried to showcase that we respect his contribution to Indian film music."
