Late Lyricist Shakeel Badayuni’s Birthday


Late Shakeel Badayuni Sahab was born this day in 1916. He was an Urdu Poet and Bollywood Lyricist. Unfortunately, he expired in 1970 at 53 years of age. I was born on the wrong side of the Golden Era of Bollywood. Thus, I have been unlucky to have missed meeting these stalwarts.

Bollywood and Shakeel Badayuni: Here are some of my favorite Bollywood songs penned by him:

Chaudhvin ka chand ho… Chaudhvin Ka Chand (1960)

Na jao Saiyan chudake baiyan… Sahab Biwi Aur Ghulam (1962)

Yeh duniya usi ki… Kashmir Ki Kali (1964)

Husnwale tera jawab nahin… Gharana (1961)

Bhawra bada naadan hai… Sahab Biwi Aur Ghulam (1962)

Piya aiso jiya mein… Sahab Biwi Aur Ghulam (1962)

Daadi Amma Daadi Amma maan jao… Gharana (1961)

Hamein se mohabbat… Leader (1964)

Do sitaron ka zamein par… Kohinoor (1960)
