Akhtar and his wife Shabana Azmi attended an event to launch an Urdu poetry album, titled ‘Shayarana – Sartaj’, where they spoke about the importance of the language.

During the ceremony, Akhtar said that Urdu does not belong to Pakistan or Egypt but to India. “This language did not come from outside, it is our own language, it is not spoken outside Hindustan,” he said.
