That’s creativity: Amitabh Bhattacharya wrote Ae Dil Hai Mushkil in the backseat of Pritam’s car

Amitabh Bhattacharya initially used to write songs under a fictitious name.

This weekend, lyricists Swanand Kirkire, Manoj Muntashir and Amitabh Bhattacharya will be welcomed on The Kapil Sharma Show.

In a freewheeling conversation with Kapil Sharma, the lyricists divulge details about their journey so far. Amitabh Bhattacharya initially used to write songs under a fictitious name. When asked by Kapil, Amitabh replied, “I had come to Mumbai to become a singer and I felt that if I gave my name as a lyricist, I would not get work as a singer.”

He further said that he had written the title song of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil on the backseat of music composer Pritam’s car. Amitabh mentioned, “We had a meeting with Dharma (Productions) and I was constantly in touch with Pritam da. When we left for the meeting, and as we sat in the car, he (Pritam) gave me the dhun. And it was the title song of the film for which I was briefed that it had to have a lot of shiddat and more. Sitting in the backseat of his (Pritam) car, I just kept writing and luckily it all came in a flow. And, by the grace of God, it got approved.”
