woke up to the sad news that our dear friend Shakeel Sohail — who helped me write the lyrics for ‘Chandni Raat’, ‘Dil Lagaayein’ and ‘Ishq’ — has passed away in Lahore. The nicest, gentlest man, I always thought of you as embodying one of those wistful Kishore-Kumar songs from the 70s… with your mild temperament and your love of chai and cigarettes (every time we agreed on a line you would make that “excuse me” gesture with your bunched-up fingers and go rushing outside for a celebratory smoke). We’ll miss you so much, Shakeel Saab, we had so many songs to write together, so many pots of chai to share 💔 dil-e-na-tawaan hai chalaa kahaan/ kisi rahguzar ka nahin nishaan
