Celebrating the Genius of Sahir Ludhianvi

Concept & Compere: Suhail Akhtar Warsi

Singers: Smita Rao Bellur & Vaibhav Vashishtha 

Born in Ludhiana, Punjab, Abdul Hayee (1921-1980), popularly known as Sahir Ludhianvi, was known for his ghazals since his college days. His tryst with the Hindi cinema began after he shifted base to Mumbai in the post-partition days. Making a debut with Azadi Ki Raah Par (1949), he went on to pen some unforgettable lyrics for films like Baazi, Pyaasa, Taj Mahal and Kabhi Kabhi. He believed that a music score should be composed of the lyrics and not the other way around. He did write on love, albeit with a shade of sorrow, but unlike many of his colleagues, he also chose to dwell on issues of social significance. His collaboration with music directors like Ravi, S.D. Burman, Roshan, N. Dutta, and Khayyam led to some timeless classics. 

Suhail Akhtar Warsi is a well-known poet and writer who has written plays on Amir Khusrau and Sahir Ludhianvi. Smita Rao Bellur is a popular Hindustani and Sufi music singer. Vaibhav Vashishtha is a young vocalist who has made a mark as a playback singer. Highlighting the details of Ludhianvi’s style, the event will showcase some evergreen songs based on his poetry, set to haunting music by directors who had a penchant for classical music.
