Mumbai: Oscar winning lyricist Gulzar was facilitated with the lifetime achievement award at the ongoing Mumbai Film Festival.
It was during the third and final day of the 13th Mumbai Film Festival that veteran filmmaker and lyricist was honoured with the ‘International Lifetime Achievement’ award by Yash Chopra and Vishal Bharadwaj.
Speaking on the occasion Gulzar said that one tends to feel happy if your family recognises your work and appreciates it as it motivates you to give your best.
“It is a very challenging task that your own family members praise your work. When I decided to enter the film world and started writing poetry and for the films, then my family said that a useless person was born in the family,” said Gulzar
“However, the family members recognised and praised my work and I am very thankful to them and now I am motivated,” he added.
