For the love of Gulzar!

By Hindustan Times

NEW DELHI, Oct. 9 -- Lyricist Gulzar has now turned mentor to Delhi based filmmaker Ajay Jain, whose debut movie will be under the supervision of the veteran poet. Jain, 33, shifted base to Mumbai seven years back from Delhi and chased the veteran until he succeeded.

"Gulzar saab has been of immense support to me. One of the majors reasons for me to go to Mumbai was him. He was the only person whom I chased for months," says Jain, who has been associated with Gulzar since then. "He is the bench- mark in films and poetry," adds Jain, who has also worked with Gulzar on an entire Munshi Premchand series for TV.

As for Jain's debut film, he says, "it is a romantic love story based in Delhi, Gulzar saab has written beautiful lyrics for the movie".
