Shabana Azmi's latest entry on Instagram is all things cute. The veteran actress, on Saturday, shared a photo from her husband Javed Akhtar's childhood. It will definitely make you go aww. The black-and-white blast from the past features a much younger version of the lyricist smiling and Shabana Azmi can't get enough of his expression. In the caption, she wrote, “Such a rare photo of Javed Akhtar smiling as a child. I find it such a ‘my dear photo',” and added a red heart icon to her caption.

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).”
