Since Urfi Javed has done Bigg Boss OTT, she has been in the constant limelight and a target for trolls. Due to her bold fashion statements, she has been part of many controversies. Including them was that she was the granddaughter of Javed Akhtar.
Talking about such speculations and rumours where both she was slammed for her link-ups with Akhtar and her fashion choices, Urfi Javed said, “Matlab Javed Akhtar ki agar mai asli mein bhi poti hoti toh mera tab bhi joh mann karega, main woh penhungi. How is Javed Akhtar to be blamed for what I wear, even if he was my grandfather. Even if his own granddaughters wear anything, how can you blame him!? Why blame anyone! We are all individuals. It’s a very sick mindset that these people have. Kapdo se dada ko kya lena… mujhe logic hi nahi samaj aaya. Yeh toh hogaya ki mere pair mere saar par laga diya aur mera dhimaag ghutno mein laga diya.”
When asked if she still gets hateful comments and messages Urfi said, “I do get comments but shayad ab clear ho chuka hai that I’m not Javed Akhtar’s (grand) daughter. Both the parties made it very clear, so aise filhaal nahi aa rahe aise comments.”
She also revealed if she gets affected by the trolls, “I was unaffected then, I’m unaffected now. How does it affect me? Javed Akhtar has nothing to do with me and he is not going to give any shares of his property, so it doesn’t affect me.”
