  • Brief Biography:
    Majrooh Sultanpuri was an eminent poet and film lyricist, who embellished hundreds of film songs with his words and gave the progressive movement of the Indian Left its war cry. For his great services he was honoured with Indian cinema's highest award the Dadasaheb Phalke.
    One of the greatest poets in the Urdu language since the time of Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Sultanpuri was especially famous for his romantic lyrics in dialogue form. He won immediate acclaim with his very first film, Shahjehan, for songs like Jab usne Gesu Bikhrae and Ghum diya Mustaqil. He wrote lyrics for around 350 films in a career spanning 50 years.

    The all time favourites from his pen include Haal kaisa hai Janaab ka from the film Chalti Ki Naam Gaadi and ChoR do AaNchal zamaana kya Kahega from the film Nau do Gyarah. Sultanpuri's last work was for the film Hum to Mohabbat Karega. He died of a lung disease on May 24, 2000.
