Prasoon Joshi's words hit where they should. Be it the rousing "Khoon chala" from Rang De Basanti or the heartbreaking "Maa" from Taare Zameen Par or "Masakali" from Delhi-6, his words are just so relatable and fresh that you just can't get over them. Guess it helped that Joshi always had a creative bent of mind so much so that commercials conceptualised by him won awards at Cannes. It will amaze you to know that the man is the brain behind a lot of hit 90s pop songs. We often rave about the lyrics of "Dooba dooba rehta hai" or "Ab ke saawan", both were written by the man himself. So on his birthday, rather than talking about his songs, let's have a look at the commercials conceptualised by him. Prasoon Joshi Birthday Special: These Soulful Lyrics by the Songwriter Will Make You Croon His Songs All Day Long
