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.

He adds that Malikji first began writing by penning bhajans. He was also an active freedom fighter and wrote many patriotic songs. After partition, Malikji moved to India and began writing songs for Punjabi films. Actor Director Manoj Kumar gave him the first break when he wrote Ek Tara Bole for YAADGAR, which was a great hit and had Bollywood noticing him. And since then there was no looking back as he went on creating some of the most memorable classics that fans even hum today.

His close friend music director Pyarelal of the Laxmikant-Pyarelal duo reminisces that he was sorry to hear about Malikji passing away. He was a simple man, a calm person, happy and proud of his work he had done. He was unique in a way that he could blend shayari and folk songs very well.
