Last updated on: October 31, 2018 14:46 IST

Amazing music, coming up!

There's a reason why Amitabh Bhattacharya is most sought after lyricists in Bollywood.

To make things better, he's a good singer too, and has given us some memorable chartbusters!

It's not easy getting an interview with him, given how reclusive he is.

A few days ago, Rediff.com's Syed Firdaus Ashraf recounted how he secured a rare interview with the poet where Amitabh told him, "I am an accidental lyricist. I learnt to write on the job."

Amitabh wanted to become a singer, but Sajid Khan pointed him in the right direction.

Here, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, are songs Amitabh Bhattacharya has sung through the years.
