Biography
 
Early days

Anand Bakshi was born in Rawalpindi now in Pakistan on 21 July 1930. His ancestors were from Kuri near Rawalpindi and had origins in Kashmir. His mother Sumitra died when he was 10. Bakshi's family migrated to India on 2 October 1947 in the aftermath of the partition when he was 17 years old.

On 15 November 1947 he joined the Corps of Signals trained at Jabalpur and was

later employed as a switch board operator. He would spend much of the next ten years of his life in and out of the army as he tried to break into Bombay's film industry. In his spare time he would write songs and sing to friends.

Anand Bakshi came to Bollywood to make a name for himself in singing but ended up becoming more successful in writing lyrics. He got his first break in films in 1956 when Bhagwan Dada signed him to write four songs for Brij Mohan�s Bhala Aadmi from which he went on to work as a lyricist for over 300 films in the course of his life.

Success

After writing for several movies over many years he made his real breakthrough in 1967 with the movie Milan (starring Sunil Dutt). With this he had the opportunity to write for star music composers in Indian cinema. He established himself as a versatile lyricist with the song Dum Maro Dum in the movie Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1972). After this he wrote memorable lyrics in many movies including Bobby and Amar Prem (1971) Sholay (1975) work with Amitabh Bachchan's Hum(1991) Mohra (1994) Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995) Taal (1999) Mohabbatein (2000) Gadar: Ek Prem Katha (2001) Yaadein (2001).

Death

Late in his life he suffered from heart and lung disease as a consequence of life-long smoking. In April 2001 he caught a bacterial infection at Nanavati hospital during a routine minor heart surgery. He finally died of organ failure on 30 March 2002 at Mumbai's Nanavati Hospital at the age of 72.

The last released movie with lyrics by Anand Bakshi was Mehbooba (2008).
