Veteran actress Shabana Azmi recently stated that the makers of PM Modi’s biopic intentionally added her husband Javed Akhtar's name to the film's credits list.

Azmi tweeted, "It is quite clear this was done with deliberate intentions to mislead the public into believing that Javed Akhtar has written the songs for 'PM Narendra Modi' when the song 'Ishwar allah tere jahan mein' is from Deepa Mehta's film '1947 Earth'”.

Earlier this week, Akhtar also took to Twitter and agitated that he was shock see his name in the credits. “Am shocked to find my name on the poster of this film. Have not written any songs for it !”

Soon after Akhtar's tweet went viral and created a buzz, Sandeep Ssingh, one of the producers of the film, cleared the air about giving credits to the lyricists. "T-Series is the official music partner of our film...we have taken the song 'Ishwar Allah' from the film '1947: Earth' and the song 'Suno gaur se duniya walon' from the film 'Dus', thus we have given the due credits to respective lyricists Javed Sahab and Sameerji," Ssingh, also the creative director and story writer of the film, said in a statement.

The film PM Narendra Modi which Vivekanand Oberoi in the titular role is slated to release on April 5
