It is a well-known fact that the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee was a prolific poet. The former Prime Minister Of India had several published works to his credit. Among the published poems, Vajpayee's poem 'Kya Khoya, Kya Paya' was adapted as a ghazal by late singer Jagjit Singh and its music video featured Shah Rukh Khan.
The music video was directed by Yash Chopra and had a preface narration by Amitabh Bachchan.
As the former PM breathed his last on 16th August, SRK took to social media to write a tribute for his 'Baapji'. "I had the opportunity to meet him and spend lots of time discussing poetry, films, politics and our ailing knees. I also had the privilege of enacting one of his poems for the screen. He was fondly addressed as 'Baapji' at home," wrote the actor.
