Bollywood’s popular lyricist Sameer Anjaan has made into the Guinness Book of World Records this year. He was rewarded for writing the most number of songs for Bollywood films. 

The official record states that Sameer wrote 3,524 songs for 650 Bollywood movies, as verified on December 15, 2015. Sameer was included as a Guinness World Record holder under a new category titled ‘Most prolific Bollywood lyricist’. Sameer, who has been penning songs for the last 30 years, is also the first lyricist to bag this honor. 

Son of veteran lyricist Anjaan, Sameer started his career as a lyricist in 1983 with Bekhabar. Later, films such as Dil and Aashiqui established him as the undisputed champion of romantic songs. Sameer, officially named Shitala Pandey, but commonly known by his nickname Rajan, was born near Banaras, Uttar Pradesh. He won his first Filmfare Award for the song Nazar Ke Saamne. 

He earned a Master of Commerce degree at the Banaras Hindu University in Varanasi, and started a new position as a bank officer at the Central Bank of India. However, a few days after joining he left the job to pursue a career as a lyricist, he moved to Mumbai in 1980.
