    7 Film lyricist and scenarist born in Azamgarh as Akhtar Husain Rizvi. Urdu poet in the tradition of Josh Malihabadi and Faiz Ahmed Faiz (1911- 84). Abandoned his studies of Persian and Urdu during the 1942 Quit India agitations, and shortly thereafter became a full-time Marxist activist. Went to Bombay (1945) and was for a while a trade union worker; closely involved with the [[PWA]] in Bombay. Published three anthologies of poetry (Akhini-Shab, Jhankar and Awara Sajde). Early work as story writer for [[Nanubhai Vakil]]’s films (Yahudi Ki Beti, 1956; Parvin, 1957; Miss Punjab Mail, 1958; Id Ka Chand, 1964).

Sathyu]]’s [[Garam Hawa]] (1973), based on [[Ismat Chughtai]]’s story. Also wrote dialogues for Sathyu’s Kanneshwara Rama (1977).

Raman Kumar made a documentary, Kaifi Azmi (1979).
