A theatre actor to a dialogue writer, Hussain Dalal has a story to tell when he was approached by the film maker Ayan Mukherjee, the director of the film who just wanted Hussain to write a few scenes only but things carried forward.
In an interview given to Telechakkar, Hussain Dalal said:
“Well, for long I have been part of theatre as an actor but writing was never on the cards. I would say that writing was a happy accident for me. Ayan (Mukherjee) wanted me to write few scenes for him but gradually I went on to write the entire dialogues of the film. Though Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani was my first film, it worked well. What more can I ask for?”
