February 22, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood’s renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar works every year with a bunch of new talent. He talks about how he balances to strike a balance with the youth.

His latest outing as a lyricist in ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ is with newcomer Vijay Lalwani who is making his directorial debut with the film. ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’ is all set to arrive in theaters on 26th Feb.

But how is he able to do it? He says, “I think it’s not really difficult to work with them, you just need to be realistic enough to accept the fact that there are certain things which they understand and you don’t. And there are certain things which you understand and they don’t.”

He goes on to add, “And even if you are born early that doesn’t mean you become older, you have to grow as a person along with your age. More than that, if both the parties have mutual respect for each other then everything will fall in place.”
