RJ Alleyah's 'Arz Kiya Hai' to feature Bollywood lyricists

MUMBAI: RJ Alleyah of Fever FM will be adding a new segment 'Arz Kiya Hai' to her ongoing show 'One On One'. This will be a three-month long segment dedicated to lyricists, the unsung heroes of most Bollywood songs.

The segment goes on air from today (17 February 2017) in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Kanpur, Aligarh, Agra, Allahabad, Bareilly, and Gorakhpur every Friday. Some lyricists to feature on this show are Irshad Kamil, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Anvita Dutt Guptan, Swanand Kirkire, Prasoon Joshi, Kausar Munir, Manoj Muntashir, Manoj Yadav, Mayur Puri, Saeed Qadri, Raj Shekhar, Rashmi-Virag, Kumaar and Varun Grover.

Confirming the same RJ Alleyah said, “So many contemporary lyricists are doing outstanding work but I feel somehow no one is doing enough to popularize their work. Understanding my familiarity with these songwriters I would love to work on a series of interview with them and talk at length about their influences and writings. I want people to know the names behind the songs, in fact, the faces behind the words.”

‘Arz Kiya Hai’ promises to offer some interesting stories behind the making of a song. “There are interesting stories. When I was talking to Manoj Muntashir I learned that ‘Kaun Tujhe Yuh Pyaar Karega’ is the first song where a woman expresses her love for a man. Most of the songs are the other way round. The director of ‘M.S. Dhoni’ Neeraj Pandey wanted Dhoni’s lover to express her feelings for him as he is a shy character,” explained the RJ.

The format of this segment will be link-song-link-song; where the RJ will talk about the making of every single song, the stories and the inspiration and touch upon the lives of these lyricists.
