When Gulzar was called on stage during the success party of his daughter Meghna’s film, Raazi, a teary-eyed Gulzar said, “I have reached this position in Hindi filmdom after completing my long safar. The word is a Hindi word and not the English ‘suffer’,” joked the talented lyricist. He added, “Today I feel happy and proud to be an audience for my daughter’s film.”
Commenting on the joy he felt as a proud papa, Gulzar said, “With great difficulty do parents get to witness such wonderful occasions.” He also extended praise to the team saying, “I feel contented seeing the entire team present. The filmmaker, producers, cast, and technicians are efficient at their jobs and have all worked together to make this film a success.”
Gulzar acknowledged that fellow dad, Mahesh Bhatt, must be experiencing the same feelings, “Mahesh Bhatt must be experiencing the same emotions that are going through me. Alia is like a daughter to me as well,” said the lyricist.
