S.H.Bihari, a great poet's anniversary and happy birthday to Danny and Shahid

S.H.Bihari, a great poet's anniversary and happy birthday to Danny and Shahid

'Deewana Hua Baadal' are the words of a songs from the film Kashmir ki Kali, which went on to become one of the blockbusters of Hindi Cinema.  It launched the career of Sharmila Tagore who is now world famous.  

But how many people know the name of the person who wrote this song?  None.  Because song writer S.H.Bihari lived a unknown life and died a unknow man.  Despite giving us such hit songs like the one above and 'Bahut Shukriya Badi Mehebani' how many people know S.H.Bihari.  Even Wikipedia has only two lines for him.  This talented poet and song writer passed away on 25th February 1987.  The Wikipedia has a list of his songs here.  

Javed Ahtar once said that Mr.S.H.Bihari is hi role model and he was"mindblowing … poet whom no one remembers today"  I pay my humbe tribute to the great poet with the video of the song posted by none other than Shammi Kapoor, the hero of the Kashmir Ki Kali, himself.

Mr.S.H.Bihar was a legend who passed away, now lets wish the two birthday boys of bollywood, Danny Denzongpa and Shahid Kapoor a very happy birthday.

Danny Denzongpa as we all know has played the role of character artiste in several Hindi films and couple of Hollywood films.  Though his original name is Tshering Phintso, he is know as Danny Denzongpa in bollywood as well as the hollywood.  He acted with Brad Pitt in the movie 7 years in Tibet.  He was also awarded the 4th highest civilian Award 'Padmashree' in 2003.

After acting as villain in many movies over the years with around three generation of actors like Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra to Sunny Deol, Sanjay Dutt and now Imran Khan etc. he is best remembered for his roles in Dharmatma, Kalicharan, Ghatak and recent Rajni film Robot.  

Danny has turned selective with his roles now a days.  He was last seen in the film Robot with Rajnikant and Aishwarya Rai.  I wish him a very happy birthday and a propersous year ahead of him.  Here is a video of him in action in Ghatak

The second birthday boy is Shahid Kappor known for his boyish face and sincere acting skills.  His best known film till date and the most successful one has been Jab We Met with Kareena Kapoor.  
A very versatile actor with a boyish face, he has acted in critically acclaimed film Kaminey for which he got a Filmfare Award nomination for Best Actor.  

His last release Mausam didn't fare well at the box office.  I wish him a very happy birthday and hope his next film Phata Poster Nikla Hero does well at box office.  He is too good a actor to be distraught by one or two failures.  Here is a video of Shahid Kapoor in one of the best songs of recent times Tumse hi from Jab We MEt

A very heartfelt tribute to S.H.Bihari and wishing the two birthday boys a very very happy birthday
