Mumbai Lyricist-writer-filmmaker Gulzar, who turned 86 on Tuesday, remains contemporary and relevant in various generations with his ability to turn ordinary things into magic. Lyricists believe so. Gulzar has remained a part of the cultural consciousness of the country through his songs, ghazals, songs and films during his career of seven decades. Born in Dina, Pakistan, Gulzar started his career as a lyricist in 1963 from Bimal Rai's 'Bandini'. His original name is Sampoorn Singh Kalra. 

According to the lyricists-- Swanand Kirkire and Kausar Munir, Gulzar has the ability to move through time through his poems, songs or films like 'thunderstorms',' grapefruit, 'mausam' and 'allowance'. Lyricist-singer-actor Kirkire said, "He is a hero, inspiration and teacher. The person always wants to be like Gulzar saheb. I was also introduced to Hindi film music by his songs. Whenever I used to listen to his songs, I felt that he had a completely different voice. He says things in modern everyday style, without any heavy poeticity. "Lyricist Kausar Munir said," Everyone knows that water is wet. But when you say something like 'wet wet water' it means something special to a person like me because prose then takes the form of verse. Even today people on the songs of permission rejoice, who are not poetic, because this film presents the simple thing in some magical form. 

Munir cited the lines of the song 'Kajrare' from the film 'Bunty aur Babli', 'Aankhen Bhi Kamal Kiya, questions the personal' to emphasize how Gulzar changed the idioms to 'character, class' And decorum and bring 'so-called Bollywood item numbers' as social changes. Gulzar's daughter Meghna Gulzar, the cricketer Yuvraj, also recalled her lines to congratulate her.
