- Twinkle Khanna had a query about the picture shared by Shabana Azmi
Actress Shabana Azmi dug up a million-dollar photo from her films archive, in which she features with actress Sharmila Tagore on the sets of their 1982 film Namkeen. Sharmila Tagore is laughing her heart out while Shabana Azmi, trying to cover her ears, wears an expression which will make you ROFL. "Goofing about on the sets of Namkeen," Shabana Azmi captioned the post. The film directed by Gulzar also featured Sanjeev Kumar, Kiran Vairale and Waheeda Rehman. Back to Shabana Azmi's post, which generated curiosity among many including Twinkle Khanna, who asked Shabana Azmi, "I want to know what was so salacious that you are refusing to let it enter your system!!"
