Bollywood loses lyricist Verma Malik of popular songs of the 1970s & 1980s. He passed away peacefully on Sunday evening at his residence in Juhu.

Siddharth Tiwari, a close family friend said that lyricist Verma Malikji had written the lyrics for many popular songs in the 1970s and the 1980s, was born on April 13, 1925 in Ferozepur, Pakistan.

He had penned Aaj meri Yaar ki Shaadi Hai, which is still popular and a marriage anthem today, besides Yashoda Na Nandla. He has also penned Hai hai yeh majboori from ROTI KAPDA AUR MAKAAN (1974), Do bechaare from VICTORIA NO. 203 (1972), Tere sang pyaar mein from NAGIN (1976), Ek taara bole from YAADAGAR (1970), Kaan mein jhumka chaal mein thumka from SAAWAN BHADON (1970) that were classics & immensely likable and popular.
