They say that ‘A lyricist is someone who can make a hungry man feel content with his songs’. Such is the impact of the songs that the lyricist pens. One of the best known lyricists in today’s music arena is Irshad Kamil, whose work (read ‘songs’) became the talk of the town with films like Raanjhanaa, Rockstar, Love Aaj Kal etc…
Irshad, after having released two books on poems, is now all set to release his third one as well, under the title of ‘Ek Mahina Nazmo Ka’, which will be a compilation of 31 poems. This book will be launched in Delhi around next week by his eternal favorites Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali.
Speaking about the book, Irshad said that his book is a result of pressure-free writing and is a straight-from-the-heart compilation of poems. He added that the reason behind him writing this book was because he wanted to bring romance back to the youth. And when his first draft was ready, he sent the same to Imtiaz, who then encouraged him to take it forward. He also added that the idea of a book crossed his mind.
The USP of this ‘romantic’ book is that it contains 31 poems in all, which means the reader can read one poem every night before going to bed, says Irshad. And by doing so, he felt that, one’s thought process will change by the end of the month.
