Noted Urdu Poet and well known Bollywood lyricist Nida Fazli died due to heart attack in Mumbai on 8 February 2016. He was 78.

His most acclaimed shers include Duniya jise kehte hain jaadu kaa khilona hai, Mil jaaye to mitti hai, kho jaaye to sona hai. Of a few popular film songs written by him are Aa bhi jaa (Sur), Tu is tarah se meri zindagi mein (Aap To Aise Na The) and Hosh waalon ko khabar (Sarfarosh).
