The famous writer and lyricist recently talked about his first failed marriage. He said that a major reason for the breakdown of his marriage was his alcohol addiction. Javed believes that if he had not been an alcoholic, things could have been better.

Recently, Javed Akhtar said in an interview to Mojo Story, I started drinking alcohol at the age of 20-21 and quit alcohol at the age of 42. I used to buy a bottle of liquor at that time and finish the entire bottle every night. This was a common thing for an Urdu poet. People used to believe that an Urdu poet has to live care-free and drink alcohol. I think this was wrong.

Javed Akhtar married Honey Irani in 1972.  This marriage lasted for 13 years.

The battle to quit drinking is the reason for my failed relationship. She (Honey Irani) is a wonderful personality. She is a good person and I respect her a lot. This is why we are still friends today.
