Religious ViewsUrfi does not have faith in Islam. [3]Koi Moi In an interview, she said,
"To be very honest, I don’t believe in Islam and I’ve never believed in it. I feel a lot of things in Islam are a bit regressive but so are in other religions as well. The world is changing at a very fast pace but religions are not and just because of that reason some people are lagging behind. This is the main reason behind the generation gap because people are not ready to change. I don’t like the fact that Islam allows four weddings. Triple talaq was banned and I think it was for the best.”
She does not like the restrictions that are imposed on women in the name of religion. She said,
"In Islam also there are many things that women should wear burkha and they should stay behind a parda, I don’t understand these things. If a girl wants to do it willingly then it is fine. One should not force something on others.”
She also said it straight that she would never marry a Muslim man. [4]India Today She said,
"I am a Muslim girl. Most of the hate comments I receive are from Muslim people. They say that I am tarnishing the image of Islam. They hate me because Muslim men want their women to behave in a certain way. They want to control all the women in the community. I don’t believe in Islam because of this. The reason why they troll me is because I don't behave the way they expect me to as per their religion.”

• In November 2022, while speaking at a literary event organised by a media house, Chetan Bhagat mentioned Urfi Javed's name while asserting that youth were spending a lot of time on Instagram. He said, "Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Urfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed's photos hiding in their blankets." Later, Urfi Javed took to Instagram to slam the author and wrote, "Men like him will always blame the women than accept their own shortcomings. Stop promoting rape culture you sickos out there. Blaming women's clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s Mr Chetan Bhagat." [5]NDTV

I wanted to break up with him one month after we got together. He was a kid. He was very possessive. He tried to woo me again by having 3 tattoos of my name, but who does that after one has parted ways? Surely, I wasn't going back to him just for the tattoos. Even if he had tattoos of my name all over his body, I wouldn't have."

    Growing up in Lucknow, I did not understand why I was stopped from dressing a certain way. I was mentally and physically abused; I even tried comitting suicide but in that one moment, I decided to give my life a second chance. I ran away to Delhi. I was just 17. I began taking tuitions to support myself. Later, I started working in a call center. Soon, I decided to go and try my luck in Mumbai. I had no money or place to live so I used to stay at my friends’ houses. I did odd jobs, giving interviews and even gave auditions.”

  • Before entering the entertainment industry, she worked as an assistant to a fashion designer in Delhi.
  • She visited Mumbai for a job interview, which did not go in her favour but because of her passion for acting, she stayed and gave various auditions. She bagged her first role within 3 months in 2015, in a TV serial Tedi Medi Family. [16]The Times Of India

  • According to Urfi, after her eviction from Bigg Boss within a week, she became jobless, and she then tried experimenting with the one thing she was best at, i.e., clothes. [17]News 18
  • In 2021, she debuted with Puncch Beat 2 as Meera in the web series.
  • She has also featured in various Punjabi music videos, such as Chat Sohniye (2021), Crazy (2022), and Befikra (2022).
  • After her stint in Bigg Boss OTT, she rose to fame and people started believing that she is Javed Akhtar‘s granddaughter because of her last name. Shabana Azmi, the wife of Javed Akhtar, tweeted to clarify that they are not related.

  • Urfi tried to dismiss the rumours in an interview. [18]India Today She said,

    People have cooked up stories just because my entire name is Urfi Javed. But he was never associated with me in any way. All this is just done to troll him and put his name down by associating my outfit controversy with him. But how is that even relevant? Even if his own granddaughter wears anything of her choice what’s wrong with that? Why is he being held responsible for that?”

  • She used this opportunity to style her airport outfit. She wore a white t-shirt with a print that said ‘Not Javed Akhtar’s Granddaughter’.

  • Apparently, Urfi was supposed to work with his ex-boyfriend Paras Kalnawat for Star Plus Channel’s top-rated show Anupama. Later, she disclosed in an interview that her ex stood in the way of her opportunity and asked the team to not cast her. [19]India Today She said,

    We were supposed to work together in a show, I guess Anupamaa only. He requested the creative director and everyone to not cast me in the show. Whenever there is even a slight chance of me being in the show, he would request the team to not cast me. Because apparently, his girlfriend present or ex would not like it.”

  • In an interview, Urfi revealed that directors often tell her that she does not have the innocent face that is required for a TV lead. [20]The Times Of India She said,

    Somehow, casting directors tell me that I don’t have that innocent face to play a lead on TV. I only get negative roles to play. Also, with lead, the problem is that one gets so over exposed playing a similar character for years that after the show ends or one quits, it is difficult to get serials. However, with parallel leads, this isn’t the problem. This doesn’t mean that I would not want to play a lead, but I don’t run after it,”

  • In 2023, she entered Bigg Boss OTT 2 as a guest, where she donned a leather skirt and a bralette, adorned with accentuated screws.
