|Full Name:||Bharat Vyas|
|Born:||6 January 1918, Bikaner|
|Died:||4 July 1982, Mumbai|
Bharat Vyas was born in the year 1918. He entered Bollywood as a lyricist with Duhaai (1943). He wrote 9 songs for this movie. The music of the movie was noted and it got the attention of producer-director W. Z. Ahmed who owned Shalimar Pictures. Thus began his successful association with W. Z. Ahmed and Shalimar pictures. Prem Sangeet was his first movie as a lyricist for Shalimar pictures. He wrote 12 songs for the movie. The first big hit of this production was Man Ki Jeet (1944) where Vyas penned the lyrics of two popular hits – ‘Ae Chand Na Itarana and Aate Hein Mere Sanyya’.
His association with composer Khemchand Prakash began during this time and together they have delivered many musical hits like Ziddi, Bijalee, Tamasha and Muqaddar. Toofan Aur Diya, Do Aankhen Bareh Haath, Sahare, Navrang, Chandralekha, Parineeta, Goonj Uthi Shehnai, Boond Jo Ban Gaye Moti, Aaj Ki Taza Khabar, Hum Hindustani and Stree are his other noted works. He also directed a Bollywood film of Rangeela Rajasthani. His younger brother was an actor, Brij Mohan Vyas.
Bharat Vyas left this world on 4th July 1982. For me, He is one of the most prominent lyricists and he penned maximum songs for historical and mythological movies, and surely deserves a place as one of the top lyricists of all time.
