New Delhi: Bigg Boss OTT’s eliminated contestant Urfi Javed recently grabbed eyeballs for her airport look, but the trend changed soon after. Urfi wore a cropped denim jacket with her bra visible. She was later trolled and abused online. The harassment didn’t stop there.
Even lyricist and screenwriter Javed Akhtar was dragged into this. He was trolled and for what? Because some Twitter users thought that Javed Akhtar is the grandfather of Urvi Javed! Don’t tell her what’s in a name!
However, that claim is completely false. Talking to the Quint, Urfi revealed, “It’s really funny that people are connecting me with Javed (Akhtar) because of my last name.”
Javed Akhtar’s wife, actress Shabana Azmi also took to Twitter to clarify the claim. “Urfi Javed is not related to us in any way,” tweeted Shabana.
