Gulzar talks about KK and his last song from the film Sherdil

Makers of Pankaj Tripathi's upcoming film 'Sherdil' recently released a song titled 'Dhoop Paani Behne De' which urges people to protect nature and conserve wildlife. What makes this more special is the fact that this was the last song by beloved playback singer KK, who passed away about a week ago.

Legendary writer Gulzar, who penned the lyrics for this song, recently talked about his relationship with KK and shared a thing or two about his last song. According to a recent report in The Indian Express, Gulzar said, "Srijit (Mukherji, the director) has done me a favour in Sherdil. Not only did I get to write for such a beautiful film, I got to meet KK after ages. KK had first sung a song of mine in Maachis, ‘Chhor aye hum woh galiyaan…’. When he came to sing the song for Sherdil, it filled my heart with joy. It’s a shame that this had to go down as one of his last songs. It’s like he came to say goodbye.”

Talking specifically about the song, Gulzar added, "The song in Sherdil is on environment. The way it’s been used in the film, it’s a call to save your jungles, rivers, animals and birds. After lending his voice to such an important message, he should have stayed a little longer. Pity it wasn’t in our hands. I will pray for and remember him. Wherever Sherdil goes, his memory will accompany us.”

'Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga' also stars Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta and it is set to release on 24 June.
