Veteran lyricist and screen-writer Javed Akhtar is all set to do a cameo in Saadat Hasan Manto's biopic helmed by Nandita Das. Interestingly, Shabana Azmi will be playing late singer-composer-actress-filmmaker Jaddanbai, who was yesteryear actress Nargis' mother, in the biopic.

This will be Javed Akhtar's second time when he will be in front of the camera as he was seen eight years back in Mashureeta Anand's MERE KHWABON MEIN JO AAYE. Reportedly Akhtar will be playing a college principal who fights to defend Manto's right to express himself freely.

Well we are really looking forward to watch Javed Akhtar act on silver screen.
