Lit for Life

Watch: Meghna Gulzar discusses her famous father in the session ‘Gulzar on Gulzar’

In conversation with film critic Baradwaj Rangan in a session titled ‘Gulzar on Gulzar’ held on the first day of The Hindu Lit for Life, Meghna opened up on what it was like growing up as the daughter of Gulzar — an Oscar, Grammy and a Sahitya Akademi winner and a Dadasaheb Phalke awardee — on whom she had penned a book, Because He Is..., in 2004.

In the book, Meghna details the innocuous methods of communication she had adopted to discuss sensitive things with her father, like writing notes asking him why he was not living with her mother. Gulzar and the national award-winning actress Rakhee, Meghna’s mother, split soon after she was born, but never divorced.
