Quots By GulZar :
➯ Music has a natural place in our lives. Right from the shloka you recite in your morning puja and the milkman who comes whistling on his cycle, to the fakir singing as he begs for alms and your mother humming around the kitchen...Music fills our spaces naturally. It will always be dear to us
➯ My regret in life is I never directed Rajesh Khanna in any of my movies. There were 3 projects for which I wanted him to star but eventually Sanjeev Kumar did them. The only satisfaction is that I wrote dialogs for his films - Khamoshi, Anand, Mehboob Ki Mehndi, Andaz,Bawarchi and wrote screenplay for Namak Haraam and wrote the story for Palkon Ki Chhaon Mein. All of them were critically acclaimed hit films except for Palkon Ki Chaon Mein and even that was critically acclaimed though a flop. He gave life to each of the dialogs written by me and brought life to those characters.He was very close friend of R.D.Burman and Kishore Kumar.I also never ever directed Amitabh Bachchan or my wife Rakhee in any of my films
