MUMBAI (Web Desk) – Lyricist Sameer Anjaan has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for penning the most number of songs in Bollywood.
He writes 3,524 for 650 films in a 33-year-long career.
It appears that, there was no such category as the ‘most number of songs ever’ in the Guinness Book, but it was created to accommodate a new record.
Here is some of his best work.
Son of veteran lyricist Anjaan (Lalji Pandey), Sameer started his career as a lyricist in 1983 with Bekhabar.
Later, films such as Dil and Aashiqui established him as the undisputed champion of romantic songs. He has three Filmfare awards in his list of accolades.
Sameer’s collaboration with Kumar Sanu and Udit Narayan made the ‘90s the most musical decade of the Hindi films.
Sameer was a hit both with the fans and the singers because he wrote songs that did not require dictionary to understand. He wrote in the language of the common people.
