This weekend on The Kapil Sharma Show, award-winning lyricists Swanand Kirkire, Manoj Muntashir and Amitabh Bhattacharya will be welcomed with open arms. Look forward to a freewheeling conversation with Kapil Sharma where the lyricists divulge details about their journey and so much more.
In one such conversation, Kapil Sharma asked Manoj Muntashir whether he has had a love marriage, to which Manoj replied, “Ek baar marriage hote hote reh gayi and fir maine love kiya taki mein marriage kar paun… complicated hai mamla!” when probed further, Manoj added, “The first time around, shaadi ke card bhi chhap chuke the and 13th May,1997 was the wedding date – which I still clearly remember. Around April end, the brother of the bride came to meet me and asked what were my future plans. To which I told him that Bhai main lyricist banunga. He said wo to theek hai, par kaam kya karoge? I told him that I wont lie but I want to write songs for the rest of my life. We went back and called off the wedding. Of course I loved the girl. But the choice was between writing and marriage… and I chose writing.”
There has been no looking back since then for Manoj!
