Minister Kapil Sibal's penchant for writing poems is well-known. He has now penned the lyrics for a Bollywood film based on the life of senior citizens. And will also appear on screen reciting his lines.

After publishing a book of SMS poems, reciting his composition Aankh khuli aazad thi main as a tribute to women at the Star Parivaar Awards, taking on the murky side of IPL through writing, Sibal, through his poem, expresses his view on the issue of senior citizens' safety in upcoming film Dilli Gang, which is based on true instances of crime against senior citizens, who sometimes get robbed or murdered when their children leave them.

With a special poem composed for the film, which he recites in the beginning and towards the end of the movie, Sibal urges people to be compassionate towards their ageing parents. Karenge jo maa baap ki seva, Bhagwan unke saath rahega…, is what Sibal will be seen and heard saying in Dilli Gang.

Talking about his compositions and poems, Sibal says social issues are his favourite subjects. "I have written poems on multiple social issues, especially on daughters. When the director and producer told me that the movie is about old people, I agreed to write a poem immediately. These topics touch my heart. The cultural transformation in our society, where children don't respect parents and refuse to look after them, is a major issue to be addressed besides women's safety," he says.

Sibal plans to continue his Bollywood innings. "Cinema is a medium which reflects the reality in society and is trying to raise hope. For people who think for the betterment of the society and want to express their views, Bollywood is the right channel. I am going to do more of this work," he ends.
