16 June 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Eminent poet and film lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri needs no introduction. He belonged to the legacy of learned lyricist like Sahir Ludhianvi, Kaifi Azmi, Shakeel Badayuni etc. who blossomed as literary poets but took to penning songs to make a decent earning.

List of songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri are long. They range from K. L. Saigal's Jab Dil Hi Toot Gaya.. (Shahjahan) to Aamir Khan's Pehla Nasha.. (Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar). Other hits songs include Jaane Walo Zara Mudh Ke Dekho Mujhe... (Dosti), Jalte Hain Jiske Liye... (Sujata), Kya Hua Tera Vada... (Hum Kisise Kum Naheen), Ek Din Bik Jayega Maati Ke Mol... (Dharam Karam) etc.

Once for the movie Chirag (1969), staring Sunil Dutt and Asha Parekh, film director Raj Khosla asked Majrooh Sahab to pen a song which could emphasize the beauty of eye because the film's plot centered on the heroine's attractive eyes and how her world goes »

11 reasons why relationship with your sibling is crazy but special, a la Bollywood

11 April 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Out of all the various relationships (zillion in case you are an Indian including the door ke ristedaar) we have, the most special bond we share is with our siblings. They are our first best friend, first enemy and first love too (don't get us wrong). If it wouldn't have been for them, even we don't know how we could have survived in our crazy families. You fight, beat the sh*t out of each other, but at the end of the day, you are always there for each other. You treat them the way you want, but if somebody else misbehaves with your brother/sister, they will be in for big trouble. Let's admit it, you sometimes hate them to the core, but there is no way you can survive without them. Even in Bollywood movies, we have seen the crazily adorable relationship of the siblings. Here are 11 reasons »

Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan is currently in London for the 17th London Asian Film Festival.

In fact, Farah was assisting the director, Mansoor Khan, and only took over as the choreographer once Saroj Khan walked out.

Farah also recalled how the same almost happened during the making of the iconic Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. “Aditya Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan called me from Switzerland and asked me if I can come the following day to shoot a song for them because Saroj Khan had not landed up on set. »
