Gulzar reveals what it is like to work with his daughter Meghna Gulzar
In a recent interview, veteran lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar revealed that although it was not always easy to navigate when working with the daughter Meghna Gulzar , he wouldn't have it any other way. Meghna, whose next movie ‘ Chhapaak 'stars Deepika Padukone in the lead role, is known to make films that make the audience think.n Gulzar, who has written the title track of ‘Chhapaak’, said that Meghna was already working on the film when he asked her about it. The film, which is based on the real-life story of acid attack survivor, Laxmi Agarwal , required months of research and planning. Gulzar added that he was surprised to hear she was working on ‘Chhapaak’ because he presumed she was working on a film, which was based on the life of field marshal late Sam Manekshaw . However, since that film would take a lot of time and research, she decided to make ‘Chhapaak’ first instead.
Admitting that Meghna doesn’t pick easy subjects, Gulzar said he was proud of the fact that she had the courage to pick subjects that were so different. He also revealed that Meghna was a difficult director to work with and would often reject lines and songs even those written by him if they weren’t what she had in mind. He said it was something that had happened ever since they had worked together for the first time for ‘ Filhaal ’. While admitting it was not easy, Gulzar also said that I admired that quality in his daughter because he thought that it was the right way to work.
