Actress Shabana Azmi and her lyricist husband Javed Akhtar have been invited by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for dinner with US President Barack Obama on November 7.

"Javed and I invited by Prime Minister for dinner with Obama on 7th Nov," Shabana wrote on Twitter.

" USA full of doubts whether he will get a second term. I am pretty sure he will," the actress, who is currently out of the country, wrote, referring to reports that opinion polls have predicted defeat for Obama in the mid-term Congressional elections.
