0

Padma Shri Kaifi Azmi expired on this day in 2002. Born Sayyid Akhtar Hussain Rizvi in 1919, Kaifi Sahab would have been 99 this year, if he had not passed on. He is the one who brought Urdu Literature to Bollywood. He was the recipient of several awards and accolades, both national and international.

Bollywood and Kaifi Azmi: Here are just some of my favorite Bollywood songs penned by Kaifi Sahab:

Jeet hi lenge baazi hum tum… Shola Aur Shabnam (1961)

Jhoom jhoom dhalti raat… Kohra (1964)

Ye nain dare dare… Kohra (1964)

O beqaraar dil… Kohra (1964)

Zara si aahat hoti hai to… Haqeeqat (1964)

Kar chale hum fida… Haqeeqat (1964)

Mai ye soch kar us ke dar se… Haqeeqat (1964)

Saara mora kajra… Do Dil (1965)

Tera husn rahe mera ishq rahe… Do Dil (1965)

Kuchh dil ne kaha… Anupama (1966)

Bahaaron mera jeevan bhi… Aakhri Khat (1967)

Milo na tum to hum ghabraaye… Heer Ranjha (1970)

Simti si sharmaai si… Parwana (1971)

Har taraf ab ye hi afsaane hai… Hindustan Ki Kasam (1974)
