Children are ignored by Bollywood: Gulzar

Veteran Writer-lyricist Gulzar, who is known for his outstanding work believes that children have been ignored by filmmakers and the industry.

It has been a long time since Mowgli that I got a chance to write for kids. I love it and I believe that there should have been more such chances. This long gap proves that we have ignored this generation.

the 78-year-old said.

The veteran writer believes that writing for adults is easy, but tough for kids.

My IQ fits in really well with the kids but it is not easy. For adults you can write your own language, whoever understands it fine, if not then that is also fine. But while writing for kids, we have to change with their age group.

Gulzar said.

Five-year-olds’ language will be different, nine-year-olds’ will be different and different for 26-year-olds who still are kids.

he added.

Gulzar has done the lyrics for Yash Chopra’s “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” and one song “Challa” is already out.
