Shabana, daughter of late Kaifi Azmi, a well-known poet, told the portal, "He (Javed Akhtar) says the success of our marriage is that we don’t meet too often, we are both busy running in different directions. We come from similar backgrounds – our fathers were poets from UP and communists, we have a common view on things – so people say considering these factors we should have had an arranged marriage."

Shabana and Javed have spoken about their deep friendship in various interviews over the years. Further speaking about her marriage with Javed, the actor said in the same interview, "Touchwood we have a happy and strong relationship. He (Javed) says ‘Shabana is my best friend and even marriage could not change that'.”

In 2023, the writer-lyricist was asked by actor Arbaaz Khan on his show, The Invincibles, what was the recipe for a 'successful marriage'. To which, Javed replied, "Living with an independent strong-minded woman is not a bed of roses. Kahin aap ko push bhi karna padega, magar push aap equal ko kar rahe hain (Sometimes you have to push her, but you should always remember that she is your equal)."
