Did you know that Urdu poet Gulzar started off his career with the pen name “Gulzar Deenvi” ? 

Gulzar was born Sampooran Singh Kalra in a Kalra Arora  family, to Makhan Singh Kalra and Sujan Kaur, in Dina, Jhelum District, British India (now in Pakistan). Before becoming a writer, Sampooran worked in Mumbai as a car mechanic in a garage. His father rebuked him for being writer initially.
