Ozil Dalal is a budding lyricist in the Bollywood industry who is famous for the coke studio song Kyun Na in collaboration with Amit Trivedi. He has also written lyrics for anthem Bas Bajana Chahiye Gaana of Gaana.com and also Dil Ka Gaana series, Makhna from Drive and additional lyrics in the legendary song Allah Tero Naam.
Koimoi recently got a chance to speak with the talented lyricist about his journey, struggles, future projects and his bonding with music composer Amit Trivedi. Read on to know him better!
Ozil Dalal was always interested in writing poems and felt mesmerized by the art of writing poems. This is the reason he left engineering after three years of pursuing it and moved to Mumbai to make a career as a lyricist. He recalled, “There was a company I found online which was searching for a lyrics writer. So I spoke to them and moved to Mumbai but after that, I got to know that they were frauds. But my journey started from there.”
Ozil Dalal had knocked many doors before finally getting his first big break in 2012 when he met the music composer Amit Trivedi. He said, “Within a month of meeting Amit, he called me up and said, ‘Ozil please come to the office, I have some work.’ When I reached his office, he gave me a composition. And later I got to know that it was for Coke studio.”
Speaking about his popular song Allah Tero Naam, Ozil said, “The response I am getting for Allah Tero Naam is amazing. People are thanking me on social media. The response is even more than Makhna, even if Makhna is the bigger song.”
Ozil Dalal has also revealed his future projects. He said, “On 19th of August, I am coming up with a big song with Songs of faith which is Amit’s new music label. It’s a Ganpati song. The trailer is already there. The song is releasing on 19th August. Apart from this, I am working with Meet Bros also. They just called me saying that they loved my Makhna.”
Ozil Dalal and Amit Trivedi share great professional and personal bonding. He further told us, “Whenever I get a composition from Amit, I always get inspired by it. I can’t sleep after hearing his compositions. Because it doesn’t let me sleep. Till the time I don’t get finished with my lyrics, I won’t be able to do anything. And this is the spiritual bonding between me and Amit which I can feel and somewhere he feels it too. There is something. You just hear this Ganpati song, you will see a different colour in it. He is like my brother. I text him whenever I feel like and he replies as well.”
Ozil also shares a great bond with Tanishk Bagchi as well. Speaking of which, he mentioned, “I have known him since beginning days. He is a very good friend of mine.”
Needless to say, Ozil Dalal is an amazing lyricist. Koimoi wishes him tons of success for his future projects.
