Javed Akhtar was born in 1945 in Gwalior. His father Jan Nisar Akhtar was a Bollywood film songwriter and Urdu poet.

His paternal grandfather Muztar Khairabadi was a poet as was his grandfather’s elder brother, Bismil Khairabadi, while his great great grandfather, Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi, was a religious scholar of Islam who supported the First Independence Movement of India in 1857 for religious reasons.

Javed Akhtar’s original name was Jadoo, taken from a line in a poem written by his father:

“Lamha, lamha kisi jadoo ka fasana hoga”. He was given the official name of Javed since it was the closest to the word jadoo.

He spent most of his childhood and was schooled in Lucknow. He graduated from Saifiya College in Bhopal.
