Anupam Kher is back with yet another season of ‘The Anupam Kher Show’ ‘and this time the veteran actor promises that the show will be bigger and better than the last time with a host of new faces. Last week, it was our very own Priyanka Chopra who took the hot seat and shared some candid moments from her life, and this week it will be the multi-faceted Gulzar who will be opening up his heart up to the world. With a talent that’s so rare, we really hope to get an insight into his life. Here’s a list of things that we are expecting from the upcoming episode with Gulzar saab.
Gulzar, the director: He is one of the few directors who have stood the test of time. From writing dialogues and screen plays for movies to directing some of the most sought after movies like ‘Maachis’ and ‘ Hu tu tu’, he has done it all. His movies have always struck a chord with the audience because of its content and its proximity to reality. Gulzar is definitely a man of many talents, we must say but we wonder why of late he has stop making movies? We are really hoping for a comeback from this ‘weaver of words’!
The simpleton!: You will never catch him in a Gucci or Prada. He is often seen sporting a simple white kurta with pyjamas. No hangs up about his dressing style whatsoever in spite of being such a big name in the industry. Even though he is always dressed in white, it’s really hard to imagine how he keeps his clothes white and crisp all day long? We wonder what his little secret is?
What’s in a name: His real name is Sampooran Singh Kalra and it’s only after he became a writer that he took up the pen name Gulzar. His name literally sounds like a poem and we really want to know whether it’s his name that has spelled out all the magic or there is something more to it? For now we can just say, his name is very true to his character but we definitely wanna know more!
Sky’s the limit: Not many people know that before Gulzar became an acclaimed writer he actually worked as a mechanic. For all those striving really hard in life, he is a splendid example of hard work and perseverance. One of the best writers that this country has produced, we really want to know what gave him the courage to take up a completely different and new profession? Hats off to you sir!
Academy award winner: He won the Academy award for the song ‘Jai ho’ which even today is one of the most played song on the radio. Whenever there is a mention of the hit movie Slumdog millionaire, one cannot fail to see the power the song' jai ho' had in the time of its release and even today. We really want to know the secret behind the magic weaver’s wand and what ticks the creative monster inside his head?
So, all you Gulzar buffs out there, don’t forget to catch the next episode of The Anupam Kher Show on Sunday at 8 PM and get to know the world-famous lyricist upclose!
