Gulzar is one of the most revered lyricists, writers and film directors Bollywood has ever produced.

Gulzar was born Sampooran Singh Kalra in a Sikh family in the small town of Dina (now in Pakistan). Deeply engrossed in literature and poetry right from his school days, he avidly listened to Hindustani music as well, attending concerts by Pt. Ravi Shankar and Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

His family moved to Delhi after Partition, but Sampooran moved to Bombay to pursue his ambition to become a writer. He started working as a mechanic in a garage and wrote poetry in his free time under the pen name Gulzar Dinvi.
