Ep.49: 9XM SoundcastE - Manoj Muntasshir

Renowned lyricist of Bollywood, Manoj Muntashir, joins us on this episode, remotely, to share about his passion for poetry & his constant efforts to keep it alive in Hindi cinema.  

Out of his long journey from a small village in Uttar Pradesh to Allahabad & then Mumbai, the writer shares some personal notes that are worth-listening to, for every aspiring writer-lyricist.

From a life-changing incident of picking up a Sahir Ludhianvi book at a railway station to a chance meeting with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, that opened the doors of the industry. His initial tryst with the TV industry and his way of dealing with the pressure of 'deadlines' to his current endeavour of penning meaningful lyrics for Bollywood (‘Galliyan’, ‘Kaun Tujhe’, ‘Kaise Hua’) The need to fight with your fears of rejection or failure and to maintain the dignity of your art. 

This episode will surely enrich you, especially, if you are an aspiring writer or a poet by heart, as the ‘Teri Mitti’ lyricist talks about his sources of inspiration from Sahir Ludhianvi to Kaifi Azmi to Parveen Shakir
