Bollywood's poet-lyricist par excellence Gulzar remains active as ever at 85. Although he has grown selective with time, he is still penning songs as diverse as the sprightly "Hello hello" in "Pataakha" and the lilting "Dilbaro" in Raazi". While every new Gulzar track is eagerly awaited by fans, he returns with a new song in Shonali Bose's upcoming film, "The Sky Is Pink".
