Delhi University has sanctioned a Ph.d thesis on the works of poet-lyricist-screenwriter-author Javed Akhtar’s works. The student chosen for this job is Farman Chaudhary. Says Javed, “When I heard about this honour I was deeply moved.
This is a not a doctorate from some vague unknown university. It’s Delhi University, considered the hub and epicenter of education.
Also, I was thrilled that the thesis would cover my entire body of work, and not just my film or non-film writing. It will also cover my work on television. So to me it’s a great honour.”
