Javed Akhtar's tribute to Dilip Kumar, Pran

Actress Shabana Azmi has defended her lyricist-scriptwriter husband Javed Akhtar after a TV channel counted him among celebrity members of parliament (MP) who are irregular in attending parliament sessions.

Shabana took offence to it, and vented her angst through Twitter.

"I object to a television channel clubbing Javed Akhtar with Sachin (Tendulkar) and Rekha to say these MPS have not regularly attended Parliament. Not true," she wrote.

"Javed would not have been able to get Copyright Amendment Law passed had he not attended Parliament regularly. TV channels check facts please," she added.

Both the husband and wife are members of the Rajya Sabha.
