Born as Samporran Singh Kalra in Dina, District Jhelum, Pakistan, his family moved to India after partition. While he always wanted to be a writer, his father wasn't happy with his ambition. Soon, he started working in a garage. But, destiny had some other plans in store for him!

In his film journey, Gulzar has won a total of 36 awards and honours, including 5 National Film Awards, 21 Filmfare Awards, 1 Academy Award for Best Original Song (2008), 1 Grammy Award (2010), 2002 Sahitya Akademi Award for Urdu, Padma Bhushan (2004), and 2013 Dadasaheb Phalke Award.
