Bollywood veterans Lata Mangeshkar, Sudhir Mishra and Mahesh Bhatt among others paid an emotional homage to renowned poet and lyricist Nida Fazli, who passed away today.
Fazli was behind soulful compositions like 'Kabhie kisi ko mukamil jahan nahi milta' and 'Hosh Walon Ko Khabar Kya..', died after he complained of breathlessness at his residence in suburban Mumbai. He was 78.
Celebrities, while mourning his death, shared the legend's poems.
"Today popular poet Nida Fazli sahab passed away. I am deeply saddened by it. I pray to God he rests in peace," tweeted melody queen Mangeshkar.
Aaj mashhoor Shayar Nida Fazli sahab ka inteqal hua is baat mujhe bahut dukh hai.
Allah unhe jannat ataa farmaaye ye meri dili dua.
