Anjaan

Singer, Lyricist, Artist
Born: Oct 28, 1930
Death: Sep 03, 1997
 

For a famous lyricist, the pen name of Anjaan (meaning anonymous), adopted  at the start of his career, indeed later turned out to be ironical. Lalji Pandey (Anjaan’s birth name) was born on October 28, 1930 and was a native of Varanasi. His love for Hindi and the local dialect of Bhojpuri was reflected in the songs he is remembered for, most notably "Khaike Paan Banaraswala" ("Don", 1978).

Anjaan debuted in 1953 in the movie "Prisoner Of Golconda" with the songs "Lehar Yeh Dole Koyal Bole" and "Shaheedon Amar Hai Tumhari Kahani". While he was relegated to small-budget movies in the 1950s, he enjoyed some success, albeit sporadically, through the 1960s. His best work during this period is probably the song "Aap Ke Haseen Rukh Pe", which he wrote for O.P. Nayyar for the movie "Baharen Phir Aayengi". Anjaan penned lyrics for a number of composers during this period including Ravi, R.D. Burman and Shankar - Jaikishan. However, it was his collaboration with Kalyanji - Anandji during this period, that laid the foundation for the most successful phase of Anjaan’s career.
